Welcome to my profile page.
My name is Anthony Davids and I am a UKCP registered Core Process psychotherapist offering Buddhist based Psychotherapy. I have therapy rooms in Bushey, Hertfordshire, WD23 and Bethnal Green, East London E2.
Core Process psychotherapy is an integrative, contemplative, psycho-spiritual approach that combines the curative power of joint awareness practice between therapist and client with western psychological and psychotherapeutic theory. The word "core" refers to the inherent freedom and joy at the heart of our being and "Process" is about the exploration of any suffering and our pathway back to this freedom and joy.
Core Process Psychotherapy enables us to be present to our current experience and explores how our past conditioning may affect us. It also provides an opportunity to challenge our perhaps habitual responses which may have at one time been crucial to our survival but which now inhibit us causing suffering and discontentment.
As an experienced psychotherapist, I endeavour to offer you the support you may need to explore any difficulties you may be experiencing and through the confidential and non judgemental therapeutic relationship, we can begin to rediscover the true sense of who we are and reconnect to the freedom and joy at the heart of our being.
The process of therapy can open up new opportunities, we will have the chance to experience a truer and deeper sense of well-being; greater independence, contentment and connection with others. This therapeutic exploration may include exploring your somatic experiencing as well as practicing meditation techniques, as well as 'talking' as all these practices can help bring about clarity, insight and transformation
Why do people see a psychotherapist?
People see a psychotherapist or a counsellor for many different reasons, such as the territories of anxiety, stress, depression, relationship difficulties, panic attacks, phobias or a general sense of feeling sad, just to name a few. You may just want to explore and understand yourself better, but whatever the reason, people have found that a reflective enquiry into their thoughts and feelings can open up a greater understanding which can provide an opportunity for change.
Who do I work with?
I work with individuals and couples with the intention to enable you to to live life more fully with a greater sense of wellbeing, potential and happiness.

Training, qualifications & experience
I studied and trained as a Psychotherapist at the Karuna Institute (KI) and with the 'Herts and Beds Foundation' which is part of the 'Westminster Pastoral Foundation ' (WPF).
I have the following qualifications,
- Master of Arts in 'Mindfulness Based Psychotherapeutic Practice’ (MA)
- Master of Arts 'Applied Theology' (MA)
- Graduation Diploma in ‘Core Process Psychotherapy’ (Grad Dip)
- Advanced Certificate and training in psycho-dynamic counselling from the Westminster Pastoral Foundation (WPF)
- a trained Mediator with Bridge Builders

I follow a spiritual path and believe in the inherent health of every person. However this health can become obscured and create suffering in life. The first teaching of the Buddha, the four Noble truths, teaches that there is the 8 fold path out of suffering revealing once again our inherent health.
Confidentiality and professional standards are of the utmost importance and form an essential part of the relationship.
