Amida Therapy is a group of therapists based in Great Malvern, and Watford, trained and practicing in a Buddhist approach to psychotherapy. All have studied Buddhist psychology with the Amida school, and together have a wealth of experience both as therapists and more generally within the helping professions. We can offer individual face to face appointments, as well as Skype and telephone consultations.
All practitioners are members of appropriate professional bodies, follow their codes of ethics and have experience within a range of different settings and therapeutic contexts. You can find out more about the approaches used by individuals on our website.
Buddhist Therapy: Buddhism is a path of liberation for the world. In the Buddhist analysis, peace in the world and peace in the hearts of people are simply different aspects of the same thing. Buddhist therapy supports us to lead a compassionately engaged way of life that is both happier and more constructive. If we would make a better world, we must also work on ourselves. If we would work on ourselves, we must find some concern for our world.

Member organisations *
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
