What is Core Process Psychotherapy?

Core Process psychotherapy is taught at The Karuna Institute. The standard of training satisfies the criteria for a Masters Degree conferred by Middlesex University.

Karuna is a Buddhist term for compassion. The foundation of Core Process Psychotherapy was inspired by a realisation that the ancient wisdom of Buddhism can enhance the psychotherapeutic approaches of the west in the quest for the relief of human pain and suffering.

Core Process Psychotherapy   is based on the premise that, at the core, all human beings have a centre of wholeness and total wellbeing. As we protect  ourselves from adverse and potentially harmful life experiences, we become disconnected from this core of our being. Cpp offers a way to grow in self-awareness and understanding, to recognise and renegotiate our reactive defence patterns and so to move towards wellbeing with renewed vitality and  creativity.

The process is client-centred/ based on awareness, mindfulness, acceptance  and understanding/ (and holistically engages body, mind and feeling).? Delete

Within the therapeutic relationship,  therapist and client enquire  into the situations  that cause conflict, pain and distress. The enquiry seeks to understand   what limits peace and contentment and to discover creative and fulfilling ways of relating and responding to self, family, friends, colleagues and life situations.

CPP is compatible with all faiths and none. It does not require affiliation to any particular religious or spiritual system. It simply draws on psychospiritual insights from east and west.
