Personal statement

Toby specialises in helping people with addiction-related issues. He takes an integrated approach to his work, which means he draws on techniques and ideas from different schools of therapy depending on the needs of those he works with.

At the heart of his work is helping people see how their problems arise as a result of emotional, cognitive and behavioural defences that serve as an avoidance of the experience and expression of their true feelings.
