Dr. Jacob Choi (UKCP & MBACP) Psychotherapist/Counsellor, Supervisor
Eudaimonia (Ευδαιμονια in Greek philosophy), whose Latin translation is Beata Vita (Happy Life), is an ancient term equivalent to Optimal Mental Health. Also, the concept of Nirvana in Buddhism means the same thing.
How, then, can we attain Eudaimonia/Nirvana? By means of right living, correct way of life, or authentic way of being in the world with others.
What is the right way of life? Pursuing Ethical Values, such as Truth, Wisdom, and Humility – in other words, becoming more truthful, wiser, and humbler.
If growing in Truth, Wisdom, and Humility means something for you, then you have found the right person to be your fellow traveller.
I am tri-lingual (English, British Sign Language, and Korean). Due to my hearing difficulty, I use a microphone/transmitter and a receiver when I work with hearing clients. For d/Deaf clients I use BSL and/or lipreading, while for d/Deaf-and-Blind clients Hands on signing. I offer online counselling only to BSL users.
I am a Registered member of UKCP (membership no. 2011166018) & BACP.
