This thesis submitted for the Doctorate of Clinical Psychology comprises of both two volumes. Volume I consists of the research component, including of the literature review, empirical paper and public domain paper. The literature review examined the cultural adaptions of cognitive behavioural therapy and the effectiveness of the culturally adapted cognitive behavioural therapy. The empirical paper used Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis to explore the experiences of psychological therapy from the perspectives of male Iranian survivors of torture. The Public Domain Paper encapsulates the empirical study using language accessible to the general public. Volume II consists of the clinical component, which comprises of five Clinical Practice Reports (CPRs). The first CPR illustrates the case of 25-year-old Amy presenting with anxiety regarding her health which was formulated from a psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural perspective. The service evaluation for CPR 2 assessed the use of the patient experience questionnaire in an adult mental health service. CPR 3 is a single-case experimental design evaluating a behavioural intervention for 18-year-old Jacob, with autistic spectrum disorder and presenting with anger difficulties. CPR 4 describes the case study of 68 year old Jeremy, presenting with co-morbid anxiety and depression following a stroke. Finally, CPR 5 is an abstract summarising a case study presentation of Cece with mixed anxiety and depression following the birth of her baby.
