Marcantonio joined the Efficacy team in 2011. He is currently appointed Professor of Psychology and Head of the Division of Psychology at London South Bank University. He has been working as a CBT practitioner in private practice and for community mental health organisations for over twenty years. Prior to re-training as a psychologist and CBT practitioner, Professor Spada worked as an investment analyst in the banking sector. The experience gained in this field in combination with his CBT expertise has provided valuable support and insight for clients with stressful careers, performance anxiety, and worry and life-work balance problems.
Professor Spada is an experienced trainer and researcher in the field of CBT. He has published over 100 articles in international peer reviewed journals and authored three books: Overcoming Alcohol Misuse, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Problem Drinking: a Practitioner’s Guide, and An Introduction to Sensible Alcohol Use. Professor Spada is an international leader in MCT and its novel application to the treatment of addictive behaviours and psychological distress in health conditions (such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Parkinson’s disease).
His areas of clinical expertise are addictive behaviours, anxiety problems (in particular generalised anxiety and worry, panic attacks, phobias and social anxiety), and depression/rumination. He has also worked extensively in the application of CBT to coaching for occupational functioning, such as achieving better life-work balance, improving cognitive performance, managing work-related stress and tackling performance anxiety.
