Single session therapy: Maximising the effect of every therapeutic or coaching encounter

Conventional therapy assumes that the client will attend a series of sessions to reach their healing goals.

But the reality is, countless clients are showing up for just one therapy session…

…and then will walk away feeling more hopeless and despairing than when they started.

When a client has committed precious time for that first session, do you feel confident in helping them right where they need you the most?

Join world-renowned CBT innovator and author Windy Dryden to get the foundations you need for Single-Session Therapy success … including how to effectively assess and help you client from the moment they walk into your office.

Don’t make your clients wait to receive the help they seek…gain the breakthrough, single-session skills and mindset you need to truly make a difference!
