Buddhist Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy from a Buddhist perspective is about emphasizing a more realistic relationship with one’s ‘self’ and others. This means loosening one’s hold on objects, possessions and relationships that we have habitually collected and which only serve the purpose of reifying our ‘sense of self’ into something inflexible, leading to problems such as anxiety, depression, addiction and relationship problems.

Paradoxically, by ‘letting go’, through a range of interventions and exercises, we arrive at a more fulfilling and honest relationship with the world and have more energy too!

Exercises include learning formal meditation, practicing mindfulness, 3rd person accounts, life mapping, role play etc.
