Working With The Shadow

Continued Professional Development For Practitioners – One Year Training

Befriend your client’s shadow sides – and your own

Working with the shadow can deepen and enrich your practice and bring new levels of connection and healing to your life. This year long course offers a deep immersion in working with the shadow. This is a fully experiential training where you will learn and practice powerful new techniques for working with the shadow parts of the self.

You will also have the opportunity to explore your own shadows and experience this work from the inside. As well as experiencing the techniques taught on each weekend and during the peer practice sessions you will also have the opportunity to do a full piece of personal work on the final weekend, witnessed and supported by the rest of the group.

Individual tutorials will be given over the course of the year and following the training you will be offered further support as you integrate the techniques learnt in to your own practice.

There are only six places available on this training to allow each person to receive personal tuition and support over the year and to allow for the creation of a well held, shame free space where this powerful work can be safely explored.

“Thank you for your fantastic training…I have found it invaluable in my practice in helping clients speak from their different parts, and giving their darker voices a space.”

Heather Coombe, counsellor for adults and teenagers                                                                                  


“Marianne you are an amazing teacher; clear, deeply authentic, hugely permission giving, with fine care and attention to detail. You managed to teach the tools in a very accessible and  clear way. I feel my work will be much enhanced by this training, I feel so inspired and excited, and I also feel my own journey and personal wounds received such beautiful care and integration that I really do feel something deep has been brought to healing within me. I thank you so much for that.” 

Dominique Sakoilsky, couples and relationship counsellor


“I attended this course recently and was blown away. This work is very powerful and a great tool to have in the consulting room. I have used it many times now and find it very clarifying. I found my whole inner world change in the weekend attended, so much for the better. I am now much more at home with my power and able to hold that in relationships and within myself. Honestly, the world is now a different place, one in which I can hold myself and worry less about what people think or want, not that I don’t respect that, but it no longer worries me. I highly recommend this training!!”

LouAnne Lachman, psychotherapist


“I found the training extremely valuable in terms of personal development and working on aspects of self. Also I learned a variety of tools to take away. Most importantly I found that the learning environment was safe with genuine people that allowed me to share my experience and develop self.”

Ellen Wheller – Consultant Social Worker, Private Therapist and Trainee Counselling Psychologist
