Schema Therapy Associates
Dr. Tara Cutland Green and Dr. Gillian Heath
About the Programme
Schema Therapy Associates are UK-based and run an ISST approved training programme comprising of four workshops, delivered over two blocks of time. Their workshops can be also taken individually for CPD purposes. They are passionate about their trainees feeling skilled and confident in Schema Therapy, so each course is tailored to maximise learning, with a balance of teaching, expert demonstration, experiential work and role play. Their workshops - in person and online - receive consistently high feedback ratings (4.7 on an 5-point scale where 5 is excellent; N = 783).
What did you like about this course? – Damned near everything! Content, method of delivery & attitude of presenters was great.
So, so good... Loads to learn and apply. I really liked the balance between theory, demonstrations and practical exercises. You brought [the model] to life, I feel I can now apply this to my work
Excellent facilitators, inspiring therapists.
... my confidence in the model jumped up and I’m brimming with new theory and techniques to use right away.
Workshops are currently being offered online via Zoom.
Tara and Gill are Clinical Psychologists with a background in the NHS, were trained in Schema Therapy by Jeffrey Young, have published on Schema Therapy and produced a set of training videos, the Schema Therapy Toolkit.

Upcoming Online Events
Our online workshops are interactive, emotionally engaging and involve a range of learning experiences to help compensate for 'Zoom fatigue'. You will be able to practice skills in pairs - and receive coaching - using online 'breakout rooms', engage in group exercises and view video demonstrations as well as receive teaching. Professional quality audio-visuals and stable internet connectivity at my end will maximise the quality of your experience and I will provide guidance for setting up your technology at your end.
