Gestalt Therapy course

Wednesday, January 18th, 2023 | News

This week sees the release of my new course on Gestalt Therapy. The idea of Gestalt Therapy is to raise a client’s awareness of their body, sensations and experience, and use this greater awareness to help them solve emotional problems in their lives. It is one of the oldest modalities in psychotherapy and is still popular today.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction course

Tuesday, November 29th, 2022 | News

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is the original mindfulness programme developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn. While there are many forms of mindfulness today, back in the late 70s, mindfulness was just being born and this was the eight-week intensive programme that took a previously spiritual practice and turned it into a medical one.

This new course takes you step-by-step through the programme with additional modules for teachers and mental health professionals.

Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy course

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2022 | News

My Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) course is one of my best selling courses and the owner of a coveted bestseller tag. But CBT is not a single therapy: it came out of the work of multiple psychologists including Aaron Beck’s Cognitive Therapy and Albert Ellis’s Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy (REBT).

REBT is still highly relevant today: the way it attacks core beliefs, the ABC model and its use of a variety of cognitive, emotional and behavioural strategies are all still key to the success of CBT.

Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) course

Saturday, December 18th, 2021 | News

Traditional forms of psychotherapy involve talking a lot about problems and take a long time. This is expensive for the client and isn’t much fun because you have to talk about your weakest points. Of course, it may be worth it if you make gains. But there is an alternative.

Solution-Focused Brief Therapy says that by focusing on a client’s existing strengths and using those to build solutions, change can be achieved in only a handful of sessions. In my new course, we’ll explore all about SFBT: what it is, how it works and how to use it.
