The understanding of Buddhist Psychology is explored within the larger context of the Buddhist view, which is expressed as the combination of Wisdom and Compassion, and is introduced in a traditional format. The process of counselling using Buddhist Psychology is guided by the deeper understanding of truth, of human nature and of the inextricable connection between psychology and ethics. The Four Noble Truths are used as a theoretical framework to explore the process of Counselling. Meditation, mindfulness and other techniques are discussed within the larger path of mind training that leads to an awakened state.
