Core Process Psychotherapy (CPP) or Mindfulness based psychotherapy is an integrative psycho-spiritual approach grounded on psychodynamic and psychoanalytical principles and the Buddhist teaching on the transformation of suffering. CPP provides an opportunity to explore and understand our current experiences which can allow for a greater sense of wellbeing. Whilst we cannot change our past, we can change how we relate to it and therefore change its impact. Core Process Psychotherapy The word "Core" refers to the inherent freedom and joy at the heart of our being and "Process" is the exploration of any suffering and our pathway back to this freedom and joy.
Welcome; my name is Anthony Davids and I am a UKCP registered Core Process (Mindfulness Based) Psychotherapist and Supervisor. I trained as a Core Process Psychotherapist with the Karuna Institute (KI) and as a Psychodynamic Therapist with the 'Herts and Beds Foundation'; part of the 'Westminster Pastoral Foundation' (WPF). My work is governed by the professional and ethical guidelines of the UKCP and ACPP.
In the past I have worked as a therapist at the Centre for Better Health, Hackney and have had a private practice in Bethnal Green. I now work in private practice in Bushey, Hertfordshire seeing clients face to face and online. I see clients from all cultures and genders and treat everyone with respect and compassion.
I have also been a professional banker and project manager in a major UK bank for 20 years (1982-2002) and a CFO/Bursar of a UK registered charity for 15 years (2003-2018). I began my training and practice as a psychotherapist in 2001.
