About Core Process Psychotherapy:
Core Process Psychotherapy is a form of psychotherapy that draws upon and integrates Western psychotherapeutic theories and techniques with Buddhist psychology and mindfulness practices. It is based upon the assumption that at the ‘core’ of our experience lies a state of innate health that is clear, spacious and unclouded by conditions or patterns of any kind.
Core Process Psychotherapy is a depth psychotherapy that pays attention to early formative and developmental experiences and how they shape who we are today.
Core Process Psychotherapy can also be described as mindfulness-in-relationship. The relationship between therapist and client is an essential part of the work because it creates the safe container within which the work takes place.
Despite its Buddhist influence, you do not have to be a Buddhist or even have any prior knowledge of meditation or mindfulness to work with a Core Process Psychotherapist. Nor do you have to hold any particular religious belief. You only need the intention to bring yourself as you are.
Session Duration and Cost
Sessions are for an hour each time and we would aim – as far as possible – to meet on a weekly basis at the same time and day of the week.
I currently charge £55/hour for individual sessions although I also offer a limited number of concessionary rates.
Please contact me for more information or if you would like to arrange an introductory meeting.
