PBBT is a recently developed form of trademarked psychological therapy that can be used with the full range of psychological problems, even the most individualistic. The therapy is entirely based on cutting-edge behavioural science and specifically on clinical applications of Relational Frame Theory (RFT). PBBT has been developed over a period of ten years by Yvonne and Ciara 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 toward growth and well-being. The therapy draws its interventions from a diverse toolkit which are uniquely tailored to meet the needs of the specific problem. It has been used with clients and groups across a broad spectrum of psychological difficulties and has also been employed in organizational and professional contexts.
