Transpersonal Psychotherapy and Buddhist Counselling

I also try and help people with my knowledge of two areas which interlink with each other. Transpersonal Psychotherapy and Buddhist Counselling.

Transpersonal refers to ‘beyond the person’ and involves ideas like karma, soul plan, destiny, spiritual and religious beliefs, past lives etc. This is relevant when both client and counsellor hold compatible spiritual beliefs.

No two transpersonal counsellors/psychotherapists are alike as each one has their own world view moulded by their own personal experience and training. Please see my You Tube lecture on Medicine (about 40 minutes long) to get an idea of where I’m coming from. This lecture was made in 2009

Buddhist Counselling focuses on attending to emotional and practical issues in the here and now. Difficulties of various sorts , physical and even mental illnesses are seen as unavoidable parts of normal human life , that have to be embraced and skilfully attended to. At the heart of the buddhist solution to problems is the practice of Mindfulness ( ie being in the here and now) and the practice of ‘Letting Go’

(You can read my book on this).

The Buddhist perspective is that everything is always in a state of flux.  There is no inherent stability to be found in anything.  Our thoughts, feelings, circumstances and bodily condition are constantly changing.  The larger part of human mental and emotional suffering and disappointment comes from placing belief and trust in a non-existent stability.  Buddhist wisdom suggests a search to live in the present.

Guilt, regret, resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness and all forms of non-forgiveness suggest ‘living in the past’. 

Unease, anxiety, stress, worry and all forms of fear suggest a preoccupation with the future.

As this area falls within the context of spirituality rather than medicine, I do not charge any money. Interested parties may however be interested in reading my book   and seeing my video production ( Going Nowhere- Journey into the Tao).

I will tend to share my discoveries of good books and free resources on the internet.

Interested parties may contact me by email or leave a message on my phone so that we can make arrangements to speak.
