- Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
- Mindfulness based CBT
My work involves the psychological assessment and treatment of clients of all ages, mainly adults, presenting with a range of psychological needs, often of a complex nature.
I particularly value the inclusion of evidence-based third-wave cognitive behavioural therapies as the main therapeutic model at CPG, and enjoy working within such a highly qualified team.
