Strategic Brief Therapy®

Using over 25 years of clinical research and with thousands of patients successfully treated using our intervention model known as Brief Strategic Therapy®, we have proven (Gibson 2014, 2016, 2019a, 2019b, 2019c, Nardone 2013, Portelli, 2007) that while human problems can be persistent, complicated, and painful, we don't always need some long, drawn-out form of intervention to fix the problem and alleviate the suffering.

Our model has proven to be the most effective and efficient form of treatment for anxiety disorders and phobias (Ray & Nardone 2007).

Whether you suffer from anxiety disorders or phobias, whether you are a family member, friend or healthcare professional, this site aims to provide you with information on the signs, symptoms and effective treatment of anxiety disorder and phobias.
