Process-based Behaviour Therapy (PBBT®) is a cutting-edge form of psychotherapy that can be used with the full range of mental health difficulties. The therapy is entirely based on the behavioural scientific framework of Relational Frame Theory (RFT). PBBT has been developed over a period of ten years by Dr. Yvonne Barnes-Holmes and Dr. Ciara McEnteggart based on thirty years of their combined experience as researchers and clinicians.

PBBT provides a comprehensive understanding of how a sense of self can be compromised by psychological processes and offers clear guidance on how these processes can be re-directed and repaired toward growth and well-being. The therapy has been used with clients and groups across the full spectrum of psychological difficulties and has also been employed in organizational and professional contexts.
