What is Mindfulness Psychotherapy? 

​Mindfulness Based or Core Process Psychotherapy, having been established in 1982, is one of the original mindfulness-based psychotherapies. Buddhist psychology and mindfulness practice underpin this work. Teachings are drawn from different Buddhist sources and lineages to create a broad vehicle for the training of psychotherapists, which is integrated with western personality theory, psychodynamics and psychotherapy skills. 

What happens during a Mindfulness Based Psychotherapy Session?

The therapist provides opportunities for deepening embodied awareness and cultivating presence and open-heartedness in relationships. The integration of mindfulness practices with western psychotherapeutic practices is entirely unique. The client is invited to develop the ability to deepen into a state of presence, and learn to bring this state of awareness into relationship. Presence-in-relationship then becomes the ground of enquiry into the client's arising process.

In Core Process work both therapist and client are engaged in a joint healing process where an awareness of the body, its feelings and feeling tones, and the content and states of mind that arise, are used to explore the nature of selfhood and suffering. The therapist's essential role is that of reflector and facilitator of awareness. The heart of Mindfulness Core Process work is oriented to the belief that true healing is only possible to the extent that we can be fully present to the immediacy of our inner and outer experience.

Who is Mindfulness Based Psychotherapy for?

This type of therapy is not only for people who are interested in Buddhism or are already Buddhists. This is for anyone who is interested in developing compassion for oneself in a deeply held and safe space. This helps the client develop a capacity for contemplative enquiry and the cultivation of embodied awareness.

Mindfulness Based (Core Process) Psychotherapy can help with stress and anxiety, overwhelm, depression, loneliness, self-criticism and low self esteem, anger management, panic attacks, sexuality and relationship problems, addiction, bereavement, loneliness and unresolved trauma. 

 

EMDR is also offered together with Mindfulness Based Psychotherapy or separately.
