Mindfulness-based Psychotherapy


Living in the present moment

Mindfulness-based Psychotherapy is a one-on-one therapy where we can have open and compassionate conversations about your life and the issues you’re facing. It’s an opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings in a non-judgmental environment, which can be hard to find in our daily lives.

In this therapy, both you and I have an active role. Together, we’ll explore your thoughts, emotions, and behaviours, bringing awareness to your present-moment experience. By doing so, we can better understand your psychological and behavioural patterns and uncover any unconscious beliefs that may be influencing your life. We all have our ways of seeing and responding to situations, which have developed over time based on our past experiences, including our early childhood. These patterns often served as a way to protect ourselves from pain and suffering in the past but no longer be relevant in the present life.

Through psychotherapy, we’ll create a safe and nurturing space for you to explore your inner world, gain self-awareness, and make meaningful changes in your life. I’m here to support you on your journey.


Therapy is confidential. Like all psychotherapists, my work is supervised. Your identities are nevertheless not disclosed. We offer both short or long term sessions. 

Core Process Psychotherapy was developed by Maura and Franklyn Sills at the Karuna Institute in Devon, England. What makes this therapy unique is its deep integration of Buddhist principles into the exploration of human nature, mind, and personality development. By incorporating Buddhist wisdom about the nature of suffering, Core Process Psychotherapy brings a compassionate and mindful approach to the therapeutic process.
In this therapy, we firmly believe that our true nature is inherently healthy and sane, even though it may sometimes be distracted by life’s challenges. As your therapist, my goal is not to focus on “what is wrong with you,” but to see you and your experiences as a whole and non-judgemental way.

Psychospiritual psychotherapy

Maura Sills often refers to Core Process Psychotherapy as a form of “psychospiritual psychotherapy.” While there are different approaches to psychospiritual therapy, such as integrated psychotherapy, humanistic psychotherapy, and psychodynamic psychotherapy, what sets Core Process Psychotherapy apart is its contemplative and spiritual nature. It recognizes the essential role of spirituality in the therapeutic process.
Each therapist may have their unique way of working with spirituality within psychotherapy, but we all share the belief that the spiritual aspect holds a central place in the therapeutic journey.

Together, in this gentle and compassionate exploration, we can uncover the wisdom and clarity that reside within you, helping you to navigate life’s challenges and find greater peace and fulfilment.

How do we start therapy?

I offer a free initial talk over the phone or video call. This is to answer questions you may have before starting therapy and to acquaint each other. The call lasts approximately 20 minutes.
I am currently seeing clients face-to-face or by video call.
I work both in a focused short-term way or open-ended long-term work, depending on your needs and the issues you bring. We would discuss and agree when we meet for the first session.

How long are the sessions?

Sessions are 1-hour long.

How often should I have therapy?

Once you decide to start therapy, sessions are offered for an hour every week at the same time and day each week.  

How long do I need to have therapy?

A minimum of six sessions is highly recommended to establish trust and foster a deeper therapeutic relationship. At the sixth session, a review session takes place to assess progress and address any necessary adjustments.

Psychotherapy is commonly regarded as a long-term process, as it allows for comprehensive exploration and resolution of complex issues. However, the length and duration of therapy are determined through mutual agreement, taking into account the unique needs and evolving life circumstances of each client.

The Sessions are 60min and £70.

I have limited numbers of  sliding scale slots. Please ask for availability.
