Panel of ExpertsOur panel from various disciplines associated with psychotherapy
The NPT Panel of Experts
Our Panel of Experts have been invited to be regular authors on our website to provide insight from their particular field. They are recognised by us as having the qualifications and experience to provide a level of wisdom that we value and would like to share with our general readership.
The Panel are also asked the ‘Big Questions’. Broad questions we periodically ask our Panel to gain multi-disciplinary insight and possibly some threads of unification among the answers.
