Adult and Adolescent Psychotherapist
Alastair started working with JSA Psychotherapy after graduating from the University of Manchester with a BSc in Psychology and the University of Salford with both a PGDip and MSc in Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy.
Alastair works with clients experiencing a range of anxieties and depression, as well as trauma recovery work to support clients in reclaiming their lives. To achieve this, he specialises in a variety of models with a primarily directive approach, including Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing therapy (EMDR), and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Underpinning all of this, is a thorough and integrative understanding of trauma-informed care, and the resolution of complex trauma that has been retained into later life.
Alastair is also a provider of Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) to support clients in gaining control over their feelings of being overwhelmed by their worries or emotions. Specifically, in his work for us at JSA psychotherapy, Alastair is in a position to offer 1:1 DBT skills training via weekly sessions, as opposed to skills groups or 24 hour contact availability.
