What is Core Process Psychotherapy?
Core Process Psychotherapy works with whatever you as client want to bring to the session. It does not have fixed techniques because everyone is different and has different ways of relating to the world. The therapist tunes into your strengths and preferences when working with you.
The key to therapy is a warm, caring, trusting and safe relationship between the client and the therapist. In this way, we can explore memories, thoughts and feelings and how they are impacting us right now. Over time, the patterns that are upsetting us can change and we can open up to the natural wellbeing that is at our heart, but is usually covered up by our worries and difficulties.
Core Process Psychotherapy is the original mindfulness based psychotherapy in the UK. It is in the Humanistic and Integrative College of UKCP.
I am a UKCP registered trainee psychotherapist in my senior clinical year. I am coming towards the end of a 3 year Master's degree in Mindfulness Based Psychotherapeutic Practice as part of the training in Core Process Psychotherapy.
I work privately and as a volunteer counsellor for the Tom Allan Centre in Glasgow.
Before psychotherapy, I worked in the NHS for 30 years. I was a Consultant Paediatrician before retiring from medicine. Although I worked in all aspects of Paediatrics, I had a special interest in child development and disability. My experience has made me passionate about the well-being of our caring professions and the challenges facing carers.
I enjoy exploring life through nature, writing, art and the different spiritual traditions. I did a degree in Humanities and Religious studies with the Open University to widen my perspective. I have had a Buddhist meditation practice for 10 years. I am also trained in Ignatian (Christian) spiritual accompaniment and a member of Spiritual Directors International.
