My Approach

Integrative Therapy

Core Process Psychotherapy offers an integrative approach drawing on Western and Buddhist psychological influences.

I listen and respond to what comes into the room in the present moment. A basic assumption is that the body and mind are not separate. When we work on one part we positively affect the other.

Thinking, Feeling and Being are important aspects of our human experience and the therapy aims to give respect and value to each.

The intention is to open the door to a two-way dialogue that facilitates the development of a mutually created relationship. Grounded on mutual trust and respect, using the tools of mindfulness, the psychotherapy aims to help you regulate experience arising in mind and body:

  • Identify underlying assumptions, patterns and themes of your view of the world and yourself in it to help you recognise your strengths and talents
  • Make decisions differently about the way you may respond to life challenges and changes
  • Improve communication with those close to you
  • Create new meaning and purpose in the way you experience your life
