Welcome to Wisdom Psychotherapy – Holistic approach to Mental Health

Wisdom Psychotherapy uses Buddhist Psychotherapy as a platform to combine ‘Evidence-based‘ Western Wisdom and ‘Holistic Body-Mind‘ Eastern Wisdom in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Wisdom Psychotherapy works with you:
– supports your inner journey to safely explore childhood traumatic memories.
– facilitates self-discovery and supports self-awareness during the healing process.
– is attentive to your body’s wisdom using both verbal and nonverbal messages.
– helps you integrate emotions, feelings, and behaviour with body awareness.
– provides a safe space to let out loud sounds for expressing any grief or anger.

Wisdom Psychotherapy can help many issues including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety, phobia, and panic attack
  • Trauma (current or past)
  • Grief and loss
  • Life transition / adjustment
  • Addictive behaviour
  • Relationship issues
  • Emotional issues, including anger management
  • Chronic illness and pain
  • Sexuality / sexual difficulties
  • Stress management

Wisdom Psychotherapy focuses on three aspects of Wisdom:


Wisdom Psychotherapy sees compassion as  innate wisdom which develops acceptance and resilience in life.  Cultivating self-compassion reduces self-criticism; lowers stress hormones, such as cortisol; promotes processing of memories of past traumas; and can be used as a tool for self-soothing and self-encouragement.


Wisdom Psychotherapy integrates Eastern and Western beliefs about health and healing, which are often conflicting in modern societies.  Focusing on the mind-body connection facilitates healing of mental and physical issues, overcoming inner conflicts, and recovering from adverse or traumatic memories from the past.


Wisdom Psychotherapy helps clients access their own inner-truth by employing a variety of experiential and body-mind approaches.  Everyone has inner-truth within, which can be accessed by identifying and addressing subconscious issues.
