Shadow Work in the UK

Welcome to this Shadow Work blog

This blog contains articles discussing all things relating to the human shadow and the Shadow Work process.


Shadow Work invites you to discover parts of yourself that have been hidden or denied. Everyone holds part of their lives in shadow, usually the parts that carry very strong feelings such as unexpressed fear, grief, anger or even joy. These parts manifest themselves in many ways and can be the source of much pain and confusion. They stop you from being the fully expressed person you could be and sap your energy. By bringing these parts out of shadow in a safe, experiential setting you can release old patterns that you have held tightly in place, unlocking the power of your true self, with all your gifts, strengths and beauty. In so doing you can find new energy flowing through you because you are more relaxed and at home in yourself. This work can be done in individual sessions or it can take place within the context of a group, where participants are able to explore themselves, and witness and learn from another’s self examination.

The aim in this blog is to invite you to begin to explore your shadow and to learn to more about yourself, all of yourself.

I set up this blog up in 2013 with Hugh Newton, a qualified and experienced Shadow Work facilitator, and we co-wrote the posts up until Summer 2015. Since then I have continued the blog independently.
