Core Process Psychotherapy
I offer Core Process Psychotherapy a depth relational mindfulness therapy that integrates Buddhist psychology and compassion practices, with western psychotherapeutic theory.
Mindfulness and compassion practice has a growing evidence base and is gaining popularity across many fields of psychology. It is a vital ingredient in Core Process work which integrates a psycho-spiritual approach. Whilst some of our work will involve you telling your story; you will also be invited to develop conscious attention and tune into your bodily sensations to explore at depth what happens in the present moment. This is a gentle encouragement to reconnect to your deeper self and develop awareness to how things change from moment to moment.
This is not a quick fix miracle cure, but I can help you to explore your relationships to yourself, others and your experience of the world. Relational awareness helps us to see what keeps us stuck in patterns that no longer work and through embodied awareness change becomes possible.
My approach is holistic and creative, with an intention to support you to develop embodied awareness, explore and release old patterns. This practice encourages you to deepen compassion, spaciousness and authentic presence both to yourself and others.
Reconnecting to your deeper self in this way can help to loosen usual conditioned reactions or patterns of feeling stuck. Past clients have reported a deepening sense of inner space that creates more choice in how they respond to life, as well as a compassionate and more free relationship to themselves and others.
Each relationship is unique. For some people, our work together is a short journey and for others, it can be a longer voyage. Therapy is not a prescriptive science but rather is dependent on your needs, what you want to explore and achieve in therapy.
