Mindfulness based Psychotherapist
Your psychotherapist offers an approach to working through issues using mindfulness based psychotherapy.
Training began at Karuna Institute in 1993, and was first accredited as a psychotherapist by the UKCP through its Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy College HIPC to practice as a Core Process Psychotherapist in 2003. Karuna has taught and championed the use of mindfulness particularly in the relationship to develop a therapeutic alliance. Maura Sills a Director of The Karuna Institute has taught, and supported using mindfulness in psychotherapy for over 25 years in the United Kingdom.
As a Core Process Psychotherapist training began at the Karuna Institute completing the foundation year then moving onto the Professional Diploma. After accruing sufficient client hours working as a psychotherapist, I accredited through the Karuna Institute with the UKCP, then studied for and completed a Master of Arts in Core Process Psychotherapy in 2002.
I have been a UKCP approved Supervisor, Psychotherapist and Counsellor in Southampton since 2003. I work with couples having completed the ‘Key to Couples Work’ with Jennie Miller which offers a TA approach.
