Dr Lawson is trained interactively, meaning she can draw upon a range of evidence based therapeutic models to best suit your needs and goals including CBT, third wave CBT, schema informed therapy, humanistic counselling and EMDR.

She was fortunate to receive specialist training and supervision in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy when a research therapist for University College London in their feasibility study for treating Generalised Anxiety Disorder and has found this an invaluable addition to clinical practice.
