Specific Techniques


For clients having difficulty with anxious, obsessive, or unpleasant thoughts, a compassion-focused approach is often quite therapeutic in itself. For more persistent problems, Dr. Armstrong teaches his clients mindfulness techniques, diaphragmatic breathing, cognitive reframing (perspective shifting), and incremental exposure.


For clients hoping to change their behavior Dr. Armstrong employs motivational interviewing, a conversational technique that helps people uncover their own underlying motivation for change. He combines this with proven behavioral strategies that give clients the best possible chance to reach their goals.

For clients with trauma or an otherwise difficult history, there is a specific compassion-focused approach whereby emotional memories are “reprocessed” from a warm and compassionate perspective.


Dr. Armstrong is also trained in hypnotherapy, which can be useful for relaxation, self-confidence, motivation, and focus. It can ease anxiety and phobia and encourage growth.



Dr. Armstrong  has experience with anxiety, panic, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, low self-esteem, lack of motivation, burnout, isolation, and trauma. He has helped clients discover their values and life purpose and can provide help to those wanting to take their lives to the next level through personal performance coaching. 


In his own words

"I take a compassion-focused approach to therapy. Under this approach, my primary aim is to relate to my clients with absolute acceptance and unconditional support no matter what they choose to bring up."
