What is Core Process Psychotherapy?
Simply put, Core Process is a mindfulness type of Psychotherapy. In other words it is the coming together of Western Psychotherapy and Buddhist Psychology and practice.
The work entails bringing awareness to our thoughts, feelings and sensations, as they emerge in our moment by moment experience with our selves and the world.
This can support us in learning how to be in the moment, which means living fully and being who we are, as we are. It also means experiencing more depth, richness and freedom in our relationship with ourselves and others.
However, traumatic experiences that we have not been able to resolve often stand in the way of our capacity to be fully here, fully connected and fully alive.
Unresolved trauma can give rise to feelings states such as: low self esteem, worthlessness, shame, isolation, depression, guilt, envy, fear, panic, depression, loss of meaning, disconnection and numbness. These feeling states can often become overwhelming and overshadow the way in which we experience ourselves and others and ultimately affect our capacity to connect with life.
I offer a safe, non judgmental and confidential space were together we can work through whatever it might be that stands in the way of you being free, to be who you truly are.
