My practice is mainly inspired by three people, whose workshops I had the privilege to attend:
Christine Padesky is a great teacher of Cognitive-behaviour therapy (CBT). She is also a close co-worker of Aaron Beck, the founder of CBT.
Paul Gilbert, founder of Compassionate Mind approach. This approach gives us better understanding of emotional systems in our body and can teach us techniques to increase our capacity for compassion.
Bryan Post teaches how to understand early trauma. He used that understanding to design a new and effective approach to parenting of difficult children and children in foster and adoptive families.
