The following case study presents the therapeutic work carried out with a client experiencing chronic pain specifically osteoarthritis. The case study depicts counselling work carried out which is considered to be relevant to the DPsych portfolio i.e. chronic pain and Jeffrey Young's schema therapy (Young, 1990, 1991), and aspects ofthe therapeutic relationship. The study seeks to demonstrate how a cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) assessment can be carried out in conjunction with assessing early maladaptive schemas (Young, 1990, 1991), as proposed by the schema therapy model. The study draws on the theory ofcognitive and behavioural therapy and schema therapy models, in relation to assessing chronic pain and pain coping strategies. The client presented has been anonymised and given the name M. The process oftherapy will be described including aspycts oftreatment plans, difficulties and supervision. Finally, a reflective summary describes the experiential process of being a CBT practitioner.
