Do I need to be a Buddhist to benefit from CPP?
No, Buddhism provides me with a very useful ethical, spiritual, and psychological framework, but it doesn’t require you to adhere to its teachings or its commandments. The Buddha famously said “try it out for yourself”.
How do I understand whether this is right for me?
We have a first ‘no-strings-attached’ session where we discuss your situation and the options available. I introduce the approach taken in Core Process Psychotherapy and we agree whether we give it a go.
What happens next?
If we both feel that it is appropriate, then we will meet once a week for one session of 50 minutes, and continue as long as you consider it useful.
Are there any special rules?
I usually prepare a contract, which spells out our mutual commitments, including how to deal with absences, breaks, cancellations etc.
How much do you charge?
I apply a sliding scale. Depending on your personal circumstances, from a minimum of 50 UKP to a maximum of 85 UKP.
Where do you practice?
I practice in Central London (WC2N 4EH) and in East Sussex (Forest Row)
My other commitments allow me only to see you early morning or late afternoon/ early evening. Is that possible?
I always try to accommodate the person’s needs, within reason.
How do I contact you?
