Buddhism is founded on a direct observation of reality. We observe, and help our clients observe, what is true. We can then help them work directly with the causes of suffering. The skills and methods that the Buddha taught 2500 years ago have been used effectively for centuries throughout many cultures to relieve psychological distress.

It emphasizes the importance of personal practice for both the psychologist and client. It is fundamentally an affirmative psychology, helping everyone to cultivate kindness, compassion, joy and equanimity.
