Originally from London England, Iain (pronounced the same as Ian) has worked in all areas of the mental health field. He became interested in DBT after recognizing that clients needed more than one hour of therapy a week if they wanted to make big changes in their lives.
Iain has been intensively trained in DBT by Marsha Linehan and her team at Behavioral Tech of Seattle, by Shari Manning of Treatment Intensive Collaborative and by Alec Miller, author of the DBT Skills Manual for Adolescents. He is currently an active member of a DBT consultation team.
As adjunct therapies that support the work of DBT, Iain has been trained in DBT Prolonged Exposure Therapy for PTSD as well as Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD. In addition, he has also trained with Drs. Aaron and Judith Beck in the treatment of anxiety disorders.
“Working with people is my passion. I understand how hard it can be to get out of bed sometimes, and how overwhelming it can be to ride the roller coaster of your emotions day after day. However, I can help. This is a therapy designed to change your life. It puts you back in control of your own mind, it helps you make the best decisions, and it lets you get back to living the life you want to live. DBT works!”
