About me

Greg Mackenzie
B.A., M.A., Pg-dip CBT, 15 years experience offering psychotherapy, 10 years experience as an NHS psychotherapist. Guest lecturer at Roehampton University, Epsom Adult College and British Psychological Society (BPS).

CBT is a leading form of psychotherapy for common mental health disorders as described by NICE guidelines, the governments research base and official recommendations to the NHS. CBT is a short term therapy (2 -20 sessions).

CBT examines maintenance cycles i.e. what we are doing or thinking right now that may increase feelings of low mood or anxiety.
The focus is on thoughts and behaviours because these are the easiest to explore and to test out alternatives.

I have studied under some of the leading names in CBT such as David Clarke, Anke Elhers, Christine Padesky, David Veale and Nick Grey amongst others. This has given a firm base to work with depression, phobias, social anxiety, generalised anxiety, post traumatic stress, obsessional compulsive disorder and panic attacks.

I have trained in 3rd wave CBT treatments such as Mindfulness and Compassion based Therapy. I am currently supervised by Deborah Lee (world leader in compassion focussed research and treatment).

Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT) is a short term psychodynamic form of therapy. I trained at the Anna Freud centre with lecturers such as Peter Fonagy and Allesandra Lemma.

DIT allows a focus on past relationship patterns, unconscious defences and how these impact our current relationships. Through insight and catharsis clients are encouraged to try new alternatives in their relationships. This often results in more meaningful interactions and improvement in a clients sense of wellbeing.
