My qualifications are:
I have further post-doctoral training in other therapeutic approaches including Dialectical Behaviour Training (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Analytical Therapy (CAT), and in working with addictions and personality disorders.
My main approach is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), although I use other approaches such as DBT, mindfulness-based approaches, CAT and compassionate-focused approaches as required.
