Explore, Empower & Transform
At the heart of my facilitation is the understanding that no two journeys are the same and each individual embodies a unique frequency of untapped potential. This is just a simple overview so take a browse through the basic principles of my facilitation.
Transpersonal Psychology is concerned with humanity's highest potential, and with the recognition, understanding, and realization of unitive, spiritual and transcendent states of consciousness (Lajoie & Shapiro, 1992).
Many individuals are now identifying with more holistic ways of living, exploring transcendental experiences and the nature of spirituality in a safe and non-judgemental environment can provide a catalyst for integrating your experiences into your daily life and wider social systems.
Together, we co-create a medium that facilitates exploration, discovery, and healing within a protected space. Through transpersonal interventions, we allow freedom to access altered states of consciousness; encompassing the experience of physical, emotional, and spiritual self; the psyche’s shadow; interpersonal dynamics; and perceptions of interconnectedness beyond one’s self-constructs.
Coaching Psychologists are specialists in behavior change who utilize systematic methodologies drawn from the psychological evidence base to bring about positive change. Whether you are looking to improve your well-being, access deeper awareness or create new pathways in your life, coaching can provide the inspiration and structure to support you on your journey towards self-mastery.
Mindfulness Based Programs
Our practice looks at the body as an entire system, where meditation forms a cornerstone for aligning all elements of your being, and the portal through which we may access altered states and heightened awareness. Through cultivating this practice we anchor in a true change to all aspects of your life.
Breathwork is a combination of ancient wisdom and modern science.
Accessing natural psychedelic states through breathwork allows us to delve deeper into the hidden layers of your being. Having mentored under Master Breath Worker Mike O'Meadhra, of Celtic Breath Work, my facilitation is based upon conscious connected cyclic breathing, using gentle mechanisms to reach expanded healing states.
The science of applying breath awareness exercises and conscious breathing techniques opens a force for growth, and change—in spirit, mind, and body.
Shamanic therapy forms a core principle of my practice. This is a liminal space where the transpersonal evolves into deeper commune with nature, the ancestors and the higher self. We seek to make the mystical tangible, while exploring and integrating deep layers of the shadow, creating a space to honour and harness all aspects of self. This is a pathway of healing and awakening to our life's purpose, grounding into the earth we embody our most primal, divine and authentic self expression.
Core elements include breathwork, drumming, ecstatic dance, nature immersion, plant diets, herb lore and more.
