Supporting your journey
We all need guidance along our paths. In one-to-one sessions, I can offer you focused time to look into what is happening in your life, in your relationships with the other-than-human and with the Earth.
These can be online for an hour or more; or face to face in woods on the Blackdown Hills or some other location we agree.
Costs are from £50 for an hour online to £250 for a whole day in the woods. (Cost need not be a barrier; please ask about sliding scales)
I will use the skills of intention, deep listening and mirroring to build a rapport with you and what is around you. We can talk about your life direction, your loves nature, your anxieties about the planetary crisis, your spirituality or rituals you wish to make. About seasonal connections, moon and sun cycles, about the human body being in nature and about your life at this time.
These sessions are great for you if you...
- want a held space to uncover explore, uncover and find your own way in the world
- are about to prepare for a Vision Fast or solo time in nature - to craft intent or have a sounding board about where you are
- want to learn more about your approach to eco-spirituality
- want to spend some held time in nature, learning and being
A Nature Walk can help with decisions, working through things, or just re-finding your way. This is made as a ritual, with the crossing of a threshold into liminal space, attending to what the land, or nature, or spirit has to say. After the walk you come back to my presence as your mirror, to help you hear or see or feel what your experience is bringing to you.
NB I am NOT a certified counsellor or psychotherapist. I have trained in mirroring, deep listening techniques, trained and worked as breath-work therapist, practice as an eco-therapeutic practitioner and have a Level 3 counselling skills award. I have completed the month-long training as a Wilderness Guide with the School of Lost Borders.
What people say
"So much of the good things that are happening at the moment are a result of our work together - thank you so much! The winter of deep work has given me so much strength, direction and energy for this summer...and my life!"
"Thank you for guiding me through these last 6 months, our sessions are still holding me and weaving into my thoughts and actions. I miss you and look forward to seeing you again."
A Parting Blessing
May you be blessed
in these shadow times.
May the soft light invade the darkness.
May it be a soft brilliance,
as bare as candlelight,
guiding you thrugh
twilight 'til dawn.
And when the dawn breaks,
may you find yourself
upon a threshold.
May you enter
and go through,
and may you emerge
into the dance -
a whole and holy new
dance of grace.
