Core Process Psychotherapy (CPP) has its roots both in a Buddhist understanding of human experience and the techniques and developments of Western psychology.
This is contained in the concept of the integration of body, mind and spirit and Core Process includes aspects of psycho-dynamics, body psychotherapy, trans-personal psychotherapy and Buddhist psychology. With its roots in ancient traditions and modern techniques CPP attempts to go beyond symptoms and to bring an engagement with living life to the full.
Depression, fear and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Life isn't always pleasant or easy, but feeling constantly unhappy—or so unhappy you can't function—is a problem you can overcome. Depression can make you feel sad, mad, or empty and numb, but there's a lot you can do to start to feel more positive, happier and energetic again.
Psychotherapy can help you recover motivation, perspective and be more present in your life.
If you’ve experienced an extremely stressful or disturbing event that’s left you feeling helpless and emotionally out of control, you may have been traumatised. Psychological trauma can leave you struggling with upsetting emotions, memories and anxiety that won’t go away. It can also leave you feeling numb, disconnected, and unable to trust other people.
Understanding and exploring these symptoms can help guide you through the process of grief and healing.
Grief is a natural response to loss. It’s the emotional suffering you feel when something or someone you love is taken away. Often, the pain of loss can feel overwhelming. You may experience all kinds of difficult and unexpected emotions, from shock or anger to disbelief, guilt, and profound sadness. The pain of grief can also disrupt your physical health, making it difficult to sleep, eat, or even think straight. These are normal reactions to loss—and the more significant the loss, the more intense your grief will be.
There is no right or wrong way to grieve, but there are healthy ways to deal with the grieving process, which therapy can assist with.
