I am a trainee psychotherapist at Karuna Institute, working towards an MA in Mindfulness-Based Psychotherapy, which is also known as Core Process Psychotherapy (CPP). I am a trainee member of the UKCP.
The Core Process approach was developed from a combination of western psychology and Buddhist philosophy. Using present-moment awareness, including what is happening in the body moment-to-moment, we can gently explore our experience in all of its complexity including both positive and negative aspects. Using presence and deep listening I offer a safe and non-judgmental space in which to do this.
I come from a background in craniosacral therapy and have worked long-term with clients with chronic health conditions including HIV.
I am particularly interested in how our early life and childhood shapes our experience as adults and how we can seek to come to terms with all of our life’s experiences, through cultivating awareness of both our most painful experiences and our most nourishing.
I work at Spiral on Thursday afternoons.
