Dr. Trish Leonard is a psychologist, speaker, trainer and author. She loves learning the latest evidence-based therapeutic approaches and breaking these down into palatable chunks. She has trained in dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and functional analytic psychotherapy (FAP). Trish recently left CIPC within the HSE to fully dedicate her time and energy to her roles as co-director of ACT Now Purposeful Living and co-creator of 5 Minute Breakouts. Trish has struggled with depression in her own life and speaks openly about her previous in-patient admissions in adult psychiatry settings. She believes these experiences help her to understand and deliver what those struggling with depression need most- practical and tangible skills that work in the long-term.
