“You see persons and things not as they are but as you are.”

ANTHONY DE MELLO

Anthony de Mello

Anthony de Mello (1931-1987) is known worldwide as an extraordinary spiritual teacher. What may be less known to his international audience is what a brilliant psychotherapist he was, too. There are a large number of people who would attribute significant and even life-saving changes that enabled them to find happiness and peace in life because of de Mello. Not only did he found an institute in India that has trained a large number of therapists, he also made powerful interventions in the lives of people through his practice of what he called spiritual counselling.

After Tony’s death in New York on a lecture tour, I succeeded him as the Director of the Sadhana Institute of Psychology and Spirituality and continued his vision and mission for the next 14 years. It is that legacy that I continue, albeit in a different way, at the de Mello Institute in Ireland.

What accounted for the profound changes in people was his ability to combine the skills of therapy with the power of Awareness or mindfulness.

Continuing his legacy and following the same approach to human suffering and transformation, the de Mello Institute offers psychotherapy, learning experiences and growth opportunities for individuals and groups for a variety of problems and life issues.

This is psychotherapy with a difference: We combine the best of what modern psychology has to give with the deepest that the perennial wisdom of spirituality offers in order to guide you towards the peace and happiness that you long for. We offer a number of programmes and services that, through insight, understanding and skilful interventions help resolve the difficulties and problems you encounter.

Here you will see that psychotherapy is neither painful nor shameful but an experience of growth and understanding that sets you free to find happiness in the present moment.
