Your host offers an approach to working through issues using mindfulness-based investigation.
I am happy to offer clients support and information to facilitate choices around prescribed drugs. I support clients wishing to gain their own authority around choice in prescribed drugs.

My training began at Karuna Institute in 1993. I was first accredited by the UKCP in 2003, through the Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy College HIPC. I have practised since 2003. Karuna taught and has championed the use of mindfulness since the 1970s. Karuna uses mindfulness in the relationship to develop a therapeutic alliance. Maura Sills is a Director of The Karuna Institute. She has taught, and supported the use of mindfulness in her teaching. She has taught for over 25 years in the United Kingdom.
