Dhurva Davis

Counsellor and Psychotherapist

I began my counselling career with studies at the Esalen Institute USA in the early 80’s followed by five years exploring the nexus between psychotherapy and meditation practice both in Australia and the US.  After brief stints as a speech writer for a state politician, and working in private practice, I undertook postgraduate studies that led to an academic position as lecturer and program coordinator at a private tertiary college. She went on to coordinate the Master of Counselling program and implemented and managed online course delivery, before undertaking roles in Strategic Planning, Business Development and Corporate Training.

With considerable experience in tertiary education management and delivery, I have spent time at the University of Tasmania School of Medicine as the Medical Education Coordinator, overseeing the re-design and accreditation of the undergraduate MBBS program, and also consulted for the Teaching and Learning Unit.

As an experienced therapist and educator, I am interested in the impact of meditation and mindfulness practices on the therapeutic process.
