Single-Session ‘One-at-a-Time’ Therapy: A Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy Approach details a specific approach to Single-Session Therapy (SST) known as ‘One-At-A-Time’ (OAAT) Therapy and shows how this can be implemented from a Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT) perspective. Windy Dryden argues that OAAT Therapy is a time-efficient, cost-effective means of providing help according to need.

Single-Session ‘One-at-a-Time’ Therapy outlines an innovative and experimental approach to improving mental health and will appeal to psychotherapists and counsellors looking for an accessible and authoritative guide to brief therapeutic work.


"This compelling and well-written book clearly demonstrates the benefits and timely effectiveness of the OAAT mindset for both clients and counsellors. Anyone involved in managing a counselling service with long waiting lists -this book will be your new best friend.

The dynamic approach from the author challenges more traditional counselling service models yet allows counsellors to remain loyal to their core theoretical orientations by embedding the OAAT mindset into their practice. I have seen for myself the valuable impact on clients being able to receive help at the point of need. This was enabled by my collaborative work with the author at The Arts University Bournemouth as described in the book."

- Andy Froggett, Counselling Service Manager, The Arts University Bournemouth.
