Gary used mainly a very active, homework-rich style of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) based on an evidence-based model he has developed, focusing on the breaking of psychological-level ‘problem-maintaining circles’ (PMCs) of causes. He has dubbed this conception of clinical psychological problems ‘PMC Theory’.
