Dr Michelle Haslam (DClinPsych, PhD, BSc)
Clinical psychologist and ex-resident of Nagarjuna Kadampa Meditation Centre, Northamptonshire
Update: I am no longer checking my email address due to suspicious emails and fake testimonies being sent by members of the NKT. I am no longer allowing comments due to harrassment from both NKT members and survivors.
For a further analysis of recent attacks on me by ‘Dr Robert Harrison’ (senior NKT, widely suspected to be a combination of Neil Elliot and Steve Booth, but there is no proof) please visit https://www.nktworld.org/defame.html. I agree with the analysis given on nktworld, and would add that a real Dr of Psychology with concern for my mental state would have no interest in my document on the NKT whatsoever, and would not record everything I say in order to exaggerate and twist it. For a thoughtful article on the abuse I have received by ex-NKT Medium writer ‘Leaving the sangha’ please see here: https://medium.com/leaving-the-sangha/a-buddhist-perspective-on-buddhist-trolling-742b48df9dbb
I am finding it quite entertaining the lengths senior NKT are going to. However, am not interested in reading any more.
A direct message to senior NKT: noone on the outside is fooled. Survivors, every safeguarding lead in the NHS, the police, Cultic Studies experts, and my clinical psychology colleagues have seen through your tactics in an instant (they are, after all, REAL psychologists). There is nothing you can do to dismiss survivors. There is nothing you can do to ruin my career. You have revealed yourselves for everyone to see, and in the future even highly indoctrinated members will work it all out when they escape your deception and seek support.

The Police ‘It’s a civil issue between you and them. We can’t see that any crime has been committed.’ 4.) Lawyers … Read more
After I discovered that the NKT had gone full blown Scientology on me and written an entire website for the purpose of tearing me apart, I had a bit of a delayed reaction. Usually it goes 1.) uncontrollable laughter, 2.) the shakes, 3.) warning everyone that this is what they do whilst pretending I am… Read more
Every now and then in recent weeks I have been googling my own name to see when the NKT inevitably dish out further character assassination in an attempt to discredit my report. And finally I found this, an ENTIRE WEBSITE solely dedicated to this purpose. Dr Michelle Haslam ‘Dr Robert Harrison’ who still does not… Read more
Having just returned from the International Cultic Studies Association (ICSA) conference, the timing feels right to write my final written testimony. Some of you may have already seen bits of my story, on my YouTube channel ‘Thriving after leaving The New Kadampa Tradition’ in Spring 2019. This is a condensed version of the whole thing.… Read more
Some of you might have seen my videos on the channel ‘Thriving after leaving the New Kadampa Tradition’. (So many in fact, that at the International Cultic Studies Association conference people are greeting me with the phrase ‘Hi Survivors and anyone else who might be watching this’). Some of you also might have seen that… Read more
