Welcome to a place for practical, fresh thinking about psychotherapy, based on recent science supporting the idea of a common infrastructure that underlies the action of all therapies. Your practice will be transformed (quietly) when you focus on therapeutic processes, rather than a set method. My personal mission is to make this knowledge accessible to all.
