Take the next step...
This is a great place to begin. During this initial session we'll have an opportunity to settle gently into an exploration of what is happening for you and what is bringing you to this work. We will explore the changes that you are looking for and how we can get there in a way and at a pace that is right for you.
Please email me to schedule an initial 90-minute session.
"I really valued the work we did together in my sessions and want to say a massive thank you for creating a space where I felt comfortable to work through some of my most personal experiences."
Laura - East Sussex
"I feel so very grateful and privileged to have been able to work with Ali. With great skill and regard he created space for me where I could meet and accept parts of myself that I had previously rejected and denied. This has allowed me to enjoy greater love and compassion for myself and given me tools to continue to explore that inner landscape without fear, feeling defensive or otherwise. Whilst Ali is passionate about working with men I, identifying as a woman, felt fully met on that deep soulful, non-judgemental, humane, non binary level. Working with Ali was a a gift of life to myself and I hope that many more benefit from working with Ali."
Janet - Bristol
Throughout the session I felt a very good sense of safety, like I could be free in that holding. Ali midwifed an excellent process, with much depth and tender enquiry and I felt moved by that. I am cogitating and settling into the depth of what was generously facilitated for me. I really think it was a beautiful piece of work, gratitude and celebration all round. I got clearer in bringing home an exquisite part of myself."
"It was profoundly useful and I am full of gratitude. There's so much deeper gold in what we uncovered. I do feel I am relating differently… and am letting that come into integration."
"It was a deep session."
Debra - Stroud
"I felt safe and held.I liked how much Ali let me lead what happened whilst also gently but firmly guiding me."
"The session was very powerful and enabled me to experience myself and my wounds differently..."
Jessica - Somerset
"Thanks for my session this week. There is a subtle shift in me since and I'm very happy! Throughout I felt safe and held, and when I didn't (just part of my process) it was easy to say and for Ali to reassure me. I was impressed with Ali's probing questions and allowing holding. The session was so useful... particularly the bit where Ali questioned me gently, hanging out with me as a six year old. Something in that experience feels enduringly healing."
"The session definitely met and exceeded my expectations."
Clare - Somerset
"I felt heard and Ali kept checking in with me and adjusting his approach in response to my answers. I felt we did the process together, in partnership. It wasn't 'done to me'. I was safely guided through."
James - Somerset
"I have only good things to say about Ali. There was a sense of calm in the room when I arrived and I felt a warm welcome with ease. I felt I could just talk and ramble on about how I was feeling. He let me do this until it became obvious what I wanted to happen in the space. He listened with empathy and I felt heard and understood."
""When we moved to the carpet, he guided me through relationship with my inner critic with her nagging voice. It was very helpful to have this personified, listening both as a little girl and as The Queen I am today. We also explored the role of my Warrior, which in desperate need for rest, could act more as a boundary keeper to make time for myself, rather than fighting through life."
"I felt lighter after the session with more permission to follow my creative urges."
Bonny - Somerset
How often do I need to come?
I work one-to-one on a short term or long term basis both in-person and online. People use this work in a variety of ways.
Some people choose a regular slot for psychotherapy or counselling as this serves them best and in order to work with their issues and be supported over a longer period of time.
Some people want more intensive work and come for the longer shadow work sessions, coming for a one off session to work on something quite boundaried and specific. Other clients choose to book a series of shadow work sessions in order to get to the bottom of a particular issue, or just simply continue to work in regular long-length sessions.
Other people choose a mix of psychotherapy and shadow work in an ongoing way to support their personal development. We can discuss how you'd like this work to continue to support you and your ongoing personal development when you come for your initial session.
