Reclaim Your Wholeness

00:00 / 02:10

If you are experiencing dissatisfaction, imbalance, disconnection, difficulty in your relationships, barriers to progress or a lack of fulfilment in your life it is not because you are flawed or broken. With support and enough willingness and curiosity you can address these things and move through them even if right now you feel completely lost, hopeless, indecisive and have no idea where to begin.

 

I facilitate shadow work and experiential psychotherapeutic process as an effective method of supporting others to fully explore their experience, their patterns and to heal. Clearing their barriers to growth and joyful living, and supporting them to rediscover and reclaim their agency and authenticity.

 

I am passionate about holding a truly supportive and shame free space for men and woman to feel safe and to connect deeply and truthfully with themselves. Through reaching out to parts of ourselves that need our help, we develop an intimate, grounded kind of inner attunement, within which we can be much more present and connected with our experience.

People come to this work for all sorts of reasons and I work one-to-one on a short term or long term basis both in-person and online. I offer immersive parts work and shadow work sessions to resolve deep issues, alongside traditional counselling, integration work and forward focused coaching. Details about how I work in each of these areas can be found on this website so you can decide what will best support you. 

 

My approach to therapy and healing is rooted in depth psychology and I draw on tools from traditional client-centred talking therapy, Compassionate Inquiry (CI), Internal Family Systems therapy (IFS), Voice Dialog, deep relational parts work, Emotional Process Work, archetypal coaching, and facilitated shadow work to transform the unconscious patterns, beliefs and behaviours that trap us and hold us back.

"I really want to express how grateful I am for the time spent with you.  It is unlike anything I have experienced before and you create such a safe space and offer so much kindness, compassion and empathy, helping me to fully open up and explore without judgement areas and patterns in my life that I never really wanted to address or acknowledge before.
 
I am finally able to tap into emotions that I have been suppressing and I feel very supported by you."
Sarah - London

Shadow work one-to-one sessions

The parts of us in shadow are those aspects of ourselves that at some point (and for good reason) we decided it was best to ignore, repress or deny. When we struggle to identify clearly why things are so challenging in our lives, it is likely that we are being influenced by the parts of us that are held in our shadow and the patterns, behaviours and beliefs we have adopted to keep them there. All this operates below our level of awareness but directly influences our thoughts, feelings and actions as we move through our relationships and our lives.

 

We all have a shadow side and it is the parts of us in shadow, the limiting beliefs and stuck emotions which are often the unconscious driver behind our barriers to growth and joyful living. 

Shadow work is a great way of approaching your inner experience and those things you want to change. It is a deep, sensitive and safe way of working with all manner of issues even when you have no idea how or where to begin. 

As we identify, explore, transform and re-integrate parts of our psyche through facilitated shadow work, unburdening ourselves from the self limiting beliefs, behaviours and associated stuck emotions that create the barriers in our lives, what emerges is an integrity and an authentic expression of our true self; a wholeness from which flows a greater engagement and enjoyment of life.

"In every session I do I get a piece of me back."
Asim - Brighton
"Something ancient in us bends us toward the origins of the whole thing. We either drown in the splits and confusions of our lives, or we surrender to something greater than ourselves. The water of our deepest troubles is also the water of our own solution. In surrender, we descend down to the bottom of it and back to the beginning of it; down into what is divided in order to get back to the wholeness before the split. Healing, health, wealth, wholeness: all hail from the same roots. To heal is to make whole again; wholeness is what all healing seeks and what alone can truly unify our Spirit."
