He has done more than 380 such demonstrations all over the world. His latest books are Single Session Therapy: 100 Key Points and Techniques (Routledge, 2019) which outlines the theoretical underpinnings and practical applications of the single-session mindset, Single-Session One-At-A-Time Therapy: A Rational Emotive Behavioural Approach (Routledge, 2019) which presents an REBT perspective on SST/OAAT, Single-Session Therapy: Distinctive Features (Routledge, 2019), which outlines the theoretical and practical distinctive features of this way of working with clients and The Single-Session Counselling Primer: Principles and Practice, which is a comprehensive introduction to SST for counsellors. His goal is to disseminate SST/OAAT with the hope that it might help provide help at the point of need within the NHS, a form of IAPT where the “I” stands for “Immediate.”
