Our Agreement

Our Agreement

The content of the website www.deepractice.com, its services and communication, in-person, online, email or otherwise, delivered by David Beatty, your ‘Facilitator’, are meant to give you tools to guide you with Mindfulness Practice for Stress Reduction, greater equanimity and emotional and cognitive clarity. However, this guidance is not professional mental health care or medical care.

I am a facilitator of Mindfulness Practice based on the MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) Programme devised by John Kabat-Zinn, and the combined course of MBSR and MBCT (Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy) created by Michael Chaskalson. I have also attended the MTTC (Mindfulness Teachers Training Course) in June 2017 at Pauenhof Retreat Centre near Dusseldorf in Germany, and a Mindful Self-Compassion Course with Chris Germer of MSC USA. I am also suppported on a training path in Interpersonal Mindfulness through Insight Dialogue with Susan Herrmann of London Meditation. I am not a clinical psychotherapist.

If you feel overly psychologically stressed or overwhelmed, please seek the help you need from a professional psychotherapist or psychiatrist. Guidance may augment therapy, but our inner work here should be done only when major emotional and psychological wounds are already healing or healed. 

In this spirit, by utilizing or purchasing guidance services from The Deep Centre or David Beatty, you confirm that you have read and agree to each statement and that you wish to proceed willingly:
