Professor Windy Dryden
CBT Therapist, Trainer, Academic and Writer
I am 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.
