Naikan psychotherapy in Falkirk

Stuart: Holistic psychologist, psychotherapist, counsellor and solution focused psychoanalyst (also Hypnotherapist, Life Coach and NLP Practitioner)

Denise: Holistic psychologist, counsellor and complementary health therapist.

Stuart began his career with training in analysis, stress counselling and hypnotherapy. This training took 3 years to complete, over 200 assessed client cases under supervision, and a required client approval rate of 80%.  In 1996 he was assessed in his ability to provide analysis, hypnotherapy, stress management, stress counselling, NLP and complementary health therapies including specific training and coaching provision as part of an NVQ Level 4 in Training and Development assessment. This included assessment of lecturing provision for a local education authority. Since that time he has also trained in counselling and psychotherapy. He has also completed a variety of training courses in different models of psychology and philosophy, both eastern and western models.

In Naikan therapy the client is led through a series of meditations and self-analysis systems examining various elements of past and present.  Naikan is a system which changes the way we perceive the world, our experience and our lives past and present. I works by rebalancing our beliefs about how "fair", "good", "bad" or otherwise we think our experiences have been. 

We sleepwalk through much of our lives, driven by conditioned responses and with our attention on areas of things that may not be balanced or positive. Naikan, especially when combined with mindfulness training, can address this and lead us to have a far more positive, balanced and productive view of our life experiences past and present.

Naikan combines traditional ancient Buddhist meditation principles with Zen philosophy but can be applied in a complete secular way. There is no need to have any faith of any particular kind to benefit from Naikan. Journals and self assessment forms are often used in Naikan to assist in reflection.

Stuart has been using Naikan, Morita and Mindfulness in his practice with clients for many years. He also enjoys Naikan reflection led by tutors at the To Do Institute for his own wellbeing and personal & professional development.



Stuart uses solution focused psychoanalysis drawing from the vast range of models and psychological schools of thought in the west. By having completed extensive counselling, psychotherapy, psychology, hypnotherapy, NLP, Coaching and philosophy training Stuart is able to draw on models and methods to meet the needs of the client. "Solution focused" can mean assistance based on assisting with a specific issue such as anger, blushing, public speaking, confidence, self image etc. Often however the "solution" the client is seeking is personal empowerment and self knowledge. He employs spontaneous style Qi Gong, Chi breathing, Zen Reiki, meditation, visualisation and mindfulness techniques from Buddhism in his practice. He also employs Taoist philosophy, Buddhist philosophy, interfaith philosophy and japanese complementary holistic styles in assisting his clients.





Eastern Models are different from Western medical models in a range of ways including:


  • There is no individuality in social psychology. Thinking we are completely separate individuals is a neurosis
  • Empathy between practitioner and client is different. Rather than completely professionalised, the eastern practitioner  accepts that there is no separation between people, thus he or she partially "feels" the pain of the client.
  • The practitioner and client are equal. There is no power imbalance
  • Western pathology and diagnosis does not apply and is considered a negative influence
  • The "victim" or "sick" role is something the client should not be permitted to hang on to or accept.
  • There is no separation between psychology, theology, philosophy and therapy.
  • There is no cartesian (from Descartes) mind body split. Indeed the body is often crucial for treating the mind
  • Diagnosis, form filling, assessment and other reductionist methods (as often seen in NHS medical model) only serve to pathologise the client and encourage "victim" mentality. Written exercises should be focused on self knowledge and positive development.
  • Energy healing methods like Qi Gung and Reiki together with meditation are a natural part of therapy.
  • The client is encouraged to engage in lifestyle choices and changes to promote positive change and experiences. This is similar to a western life coaching model combined with eastern models of diet and nutrition. This views the client holistically as a whole and unique person, and not a "sick" person.

  • Buddhism and Zen have a different model of the subconscious to western models. There is a greater spiritual  and deeper element in the Zen model. The eastern model emphasises becoming one with the world and not self-actualisation or individualisation. In lay mans terms the eastern model suggests that people need to be one with others and cease conflict and separation, as opposed to western models that tend to focus on making the person more separate.  The eastern model is based on the belief that we are social animals and not hermits, therefore successful and happy living requires us to interact with others and the environment. It has similarities to western social psychology.
