Compassionate Inquiry Individual Sessions

Compassionate Inquiry is a psychotherapeutic approach developed and created by Dr. Gabor Maté and developed by Sat Dharam Kaur that focuses on revealing what lies beneath the appearance we present to the world.

Together the client and therapist uncovers the layers of consciousness, mental climate, hidden assumptions, implicit memories and body states that make up the actual message that words both express and conceal.



Through Compassionate Inquiry, the client learns through experience, to recognise the unconscious dynamics that affect their lives and how to liberate themselves from them. Although it is a talk-based therapy the focus is on the body and nervous system and what takes place there in the present moment.


“The purpose of the Compassionate Inquiry is to drill down to the core stories people tell themselves – to get them to see what story they are telling themselves unconsciously; what those beliefs are, where they came from; and guide them to the possibility of letting go of those stories, or letting go of the hold those stories have on them …That’s what Compassionate Inquiry is.”
