(4) Comments from clients:

I initially met Danapriya at one of the mindfulness courses that he leads in Deal. I was going through a time of intense self-reflection, and really appreciated his approach. Once the course ended, I continued to see Danapriya 1:1 for talking therapies/life guidance sessions. We cover all sorts of topics, whatever is on my mind he’s happy to discuss and help me navigate in a thoughtful way – whether big philosophical life questions, practical career challenges, or day to day life management, coping with stress, interpersonal conflict and decision making…the list goes on. I also see Danapriya for acupuncture – which has been found to have calming and hormonal balancing effects. I very much value Danapriya’s world view and life wisdom, and am very happy to have found him, especially so close to home.

“I felt completely met by Danapriya which is a rare experience for me. I also felt that my usual way of being was somehow interrupted, and I feel differently about how I relate to myself and the world around me.

Danapriya is very caring, wise and embodied and confident in himself. I am hoping to have regular sessions with Danapriya as he helps me to free myself up from all my old thoughts, in a way that is challenging but also doable and pragmatic, and I feel he has the skills of a depth therapist, coach, dharma teacher and is resourced in working with gay men in a very natural way.”

“I find Danapriya’s Life Guidance Sessions invaluable, although I am a woman in my 60’s I find I still need a helping hand in my life. Danapriya is so kind, a good listener and has great wisdom. I am so pleased to have found him, not only does he help me emotionally, I enjoy our sessions and working through life’s problems when we often cannot see the wood for the trees”

“Having met Danapriya via a meditation class he was running, I felt drawn to his warmth and kindness which consequently inspired me to contact him to do some life coaching sessions.
In my experience, I believe that in whichever capacity Danapriya works with you and whatever you are hoping to achieve, the experience of having his  guidance and support can be only a positive and fulfilling one.”

Hello, I am Danapriya (my Buddhist name) or Ian Dixon (civil name).

I have been helping people since 1995 to gain Clarity and to make decisions to enhance their future, in all walks of their lives.

I will give you space to talk; with me intently listening and using all the skills I have gained over the last 25 years. Together we will find clarity and a way forward that helps you to be the person you wish to be. Enabling you to talk about anything on your mind – in your emotional world or it may be something that you can’t put your finger on, but you know things aren’t right.

People typically come with areas relating to:-

  • A current difficulty with someone, either at work, a family member, neighbour, friend or company
  • Grieving
  • My life is not working just now
  • Fulfilling potential
  • Raising low self-esteem
  • Relationship issues
  • Overcoming anxiety
  • Sleeping disorders
  • Health issues
  • Sexual orientation
  • and much more…

You can come for a one-off session or ongoing sessions, whatever works for you.

I trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in the NHS. I have been leading retreats, giving talks and running courses in mindfulness, positive thinking and personal development. I have been meeting people individually to mentor them in their personal lives and on their spiritual path since 1995. I am an ordained Buddhist and founded the East Kent Buddhist Group in 2007 and ran it for 11 years.

In 1993 to 1996 I studied traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture, which included counselling skills, NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) and behaviour therapy. I have had a private practice since 1995 in London and Deal.
