"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."
J.K.T, 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."

 

D.S. 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..."

J.W. 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."

C.M. 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."

 

J.D. 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."

B.M. Somerset

90-minute 'First Step' session

I routinely work in longer sessions for a very good reason. However, in order for the investment of time and money in an initial five hour session not to be a barrier to you experiencing the benefit of this deep work, I offer an initial 90-minute session.

 

In this 90-minute session you will have the opportunity to meet me and experience being held through a process of compassionate inquiry as you talk and we explore together what is alive for you, and the current challenges you're experiencing in your life and relationships.

 

The first hour of this session will look much like a deep counselling or psychotherapy session and you will receive the insights and benefits that naturally come from exploring your experience in this way.

 

In the final half hour you'll be introduced to how the work would deepen and develop if we stepped forward into the next stage of experiential process and parts work. In this way you will be able to understand what this framework offers and the potential of this work for deep insight and transformation of your unhelpful patterns, beliefs and behaviours.

Book a Shadow Work session

Individual sessions last between 2 and 5 hours. The first session is usually a long session of five hours (or three consecutive two hour sessions).

 

The longer length of the sessions I offer makes a huge difference to the therapeutic experience, allowing a level of safety to emerge for you within which you are able to settle into deep exploration of the issue that you are bringing. It is within the safety that develops over the initial five hour process that we are able to work at depth and facilitate the initial inner shifts that you are looking for.

Once this connection has been established between us, subsequent sessions can be tailored in duration and frequency to meet your requirements. 

Clients frequently report that the extended length of these 'deep dive' sessions is necessary for the depth that they have been able to access and the shifts they have experienced.

 

My experience is that what we can do in a five hour session together goes way beyond what is possible in five consecutive weekly sessions of traditional talking therapy requiring the same financial investment.

 

How often do I need to come?

People use this work in a variety of ways. Some people come for a one off session to work on something quite boundaried and specific. Some clients choose to book a series of sessions, maybe 3 or 4 sessions altogether over several months in order to get to the bottom of a particular issue. Other people choose to use the work in an ongoing way to support their personal development, for example a two-hour session fortnightly, or a five-hour session once a month.

We can discuss how you'd like this work to continue to support you and your ongoing personal development when you come for your first session.

Fees and practical details

Fees are calculated using an hourly rate. I offer a sliding scale of £40 - £80 per hour based on your ability to pay. On booking I ask that you choose the hourly rate that is appropriate for you. No questions are asked. For guidance on choosing your place on the scale click here

 

Also, I’m aware that £40 per hour is still too much for some people; If you are keen to work with me but cannot meet the cost right now please contact me to start a discussion.

I am based in the Welsh Borders, and offer face to face sessions in Hereford (HR2 8DL) and Abergavenny (NP7 5RF). When appropriate I also offer sessions via zoom.
