Why Core Process Psychotherapy?

Core Process Psychotherapy has its roots in Eastern Buddhist Psychology and Western Psychodynamic theory, and you do not need to be religious to benefit from the approach.  It is informed by neuroscience, attachment theory and the role of the nervous system in trauma and healing. It is part of the Humanistic and Integrative school of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapists (UKCP) and it is a relational and person-centred approach.

Psychotherapy can help with:

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Stress

  • Low self esteem

  • Relationship issues

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

  • Anger

  • Bereavement, grief, loss

  • Sexuality

  • Eating Disorders

  • Abuse

  • Adjustments/Transition/Major life changes e.g, motherhood, fatherhood, marriage, divorce, job loss, ill health

Using mindfulness allows us to notice and become aware of our thoughts and feelings in the present moment, as well as helping us to notice familiar patterns of behaving and relating towards others that may have evolved from our past experiences. Most of our wounds come from the past, often in our earliest relationships, and exploring these with a trusted and non judgemental therapist in the here and now can help you to understand more about how you have come to view the world. Psychotherapy can help us to work with areas of 'stuckness' and connect with ourselves and our resources more deeply.
