Please wait ...

The reality therapists face is that most of us will have clients who only show up for a single therapy session.

If all you have is one client session ... are you confident you can provide the help needed in that short amount of time?  

World-renowned CBT innovator and author Windy Dryden is a master at single-session therapy. He's written dozens of books and trained thousands of therapists worldwide on exactly how to pinpoint and overcome your client's most pressing concern in one session!

Now in this all-new master class, you can master Windy Dryden's Single-Session Therapy (SST) framework and start using his techniques right away in your practice! Register today for this engaging CPD course and get:

  • 5 step-by-step training sessions where you'll learn exactly how to guide clients through the SST pathway — from the first moment they step in your office to the end of the session where they leave with a specific plan for their needs.
  • 2 real in-session demonstration videos where you'll experience Windy Dryden's SST approach in action with clients experiencing stress, anxiety, and emotional pain.
  • Exclusive therapist-to-therapist interviews with fellow clinician Tracy Jarvis that will explore key moments of each client demonstration, so you can fully understand how to apply these techniques with your clients.
