This portfolio comprises three sections: an empirical research project, an extended client study and a publishable paper. Each contributing to a specific DPsych training requirement during my t raining as a Counselling Psychologist. The portfolio provides a unique avenue to demonstrate my critical thinking, reflexivity, clinical skills and research competence at a doctoral level. It also calls for my knowledge and exposure within the field of psychology to be expanded beyond clinical work alone. In view of the interrelated nature of mental health care, personal wellbeing and psychological theory, this portfolio created opportunities to establish potential linkage and synthesis with other professions in t~e service of the individuals that required care. Embracing the pluralistic attitude of Counselling Psychology, and appreciating the intersubjectivity and contextual setting that we practice in, this portfolio comprised of an extended client study that revisits the fundamentals of psychotherapeutic approaches, an empirical research that explored the discursive aspects of a predominantly positivist approach, and an innovative proposals calling for the success achieved in clinical population through Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to be extended to 'healthy' population, in the service of improving wellbeing and strategic preventative care.
