Core Process Psychotherapy is one of the original mindfulness-based psychotherapies which recognises Western psychological theories and the science and art of Mindfulness.

Core Process Psychotherapists are trained to support depth awareness and presence in relationship. This generates a non-invasive, open, compassionate and safe space in which the client can bring their fears, wants and needs.

Therapist and client work together to reveal and process conditioning and unhelpful strategies that limit and block the flow and fullness of experience in the present.

Difficulties are not seen as necessarily negative, unwanted or insurmountable - instead these edges of resistance are welcomed as opportunities for realisation and areas for growth.

Appointments are available in Edinburgh and the Scottish Borders.
