Stuart's approach to talking therapy is person centred. He uses mentoring and listening for life or emotional difficulties, CBT informed interventions for common mental stressors, or EMDR for trauma related issues. He is qualified as a THORN practitioner with a BSc(Hons) in mental health (Psychosocial interventions in psychosis), and has received continuing training in CBT, and fully qualified in EMDR.
