In this presentation, I will outline the main features of REBT and how it can be practised within the context of an effective working alliance between therapist and client. I will also do a live demonstration of how I practise REBT with a volunteer from the online audience seeking help for a current issue, problem or concern.

Professor Windy Dryden

CBT Therapist, Trainer, Academic and Writer

I am Emeritus Professor of Psychotherapeutic Studies at Goldsmiths University of London and have been working in the field of counselling and psychotherapy since 1975. I was one of the first people in Britain to be trained in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and have trained with Drs. Albert Ellis, Aaron T. Beck and Arnold Lazarus. I have also trained at the University of Warwick where I was awarded an MSc in Psychotherapy. This was an eclectic course and gave me a very broad view of the field. What has been important and sustaining in my career has been variety. Thus, I work as a practitioner, trainer, academic and writer/editor.

Testimonials: Live Attendees


A really engaging introduction to REBT. Windy was very thorough and covered so much ground in a short space of time. He seems to enjoy sharing his deep knowlege and experience. Especially enjoyed seeing it in action with the demonstration.This has inspired in me a desire to look deeper into REBT and learn more about it, many thanks Windy and online events for making this accessible to persons of limited financial means.
