Practising as a Buddhist Psychotherapist

Practising as a Buddhist Psychotherapist

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.

As Buddhist psychologists we are privileged to practice in a tradition which offers tools which contemporary psychology is just coming to know about.

Buddhist psychology is based on mindfulness, ethical living and an understanding of our inter-dependence with all life. 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.

Society, Catholicism and the human person as complex systems and sub-systems

Complexity theory is recognised as the New Science that conceptualises the universe as a system of communicating systems. As such, everything in the universe is better understood by exploring the dynamic, nonlinear relationships between the parts that make up the whole. Psychoanalytic Complexity Theory provides a new, but familiar contribution to contemporary psychoanalytic theory and practice.
