I have worked as a medical doctor and as an accredited cognitive therapist. I trained too in emotion-focused therapy, interpersonal psychotherapy, problem solving and psychosexual medicine. I have been a lecturer on the South of Scotland CBT postgraduate training course, taught seminars for GP's on depression treatment, and served on a Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network working party to develop anxiety treatment guidelines for Scottish health professionals. I have also chaired the clinical advisory group for AoD, Scotland's main depression charity and acted as reviewer for papers on stress in the British Medical Journal. I produce a regular newsletter that overviews emerging research in psychotherapy - see www.goodmedicine.org.uk for more details.
