Would You Like To Make A Real Difference To People’s Lives?

Add To Your Existing Practice or Develop A Career Facilitating Men and Women In The Exploration & Healing Of Their Shadow 

Healing The Shadow is an organisation devoted to exploring and healing the human shadow. This work helps people to understand their shadows, explore their fears and limitations, heal deep wounds and move beyond the emotional issues of their past to grow into all they can be.

Our practitioners facilitate powerful, safe and effective processes whilst standing alongside the client with humanity and compassion.

Healing the Shadow is a fully insured training school and we are delighted to be offering our first practitioner training starting in October 2019.

This training is designed to equip you with the skills to become a Healing The Shadow practitioner and facilitate this deep emotional process work for individuals.

We also offer a third year of training, which will give you the additional skills required to facilitate deep emotional process work in a group or workshop setting.

This training is suitable both for those new to working in the field of personal development and also those currently working as counsellors who wish to add these powerful techniques to their existing practice.

The facilitators offering this training are Healing The Shadow practitioners Rod Boothroyd and Marianne Hill.

We have designed a comprehensive training which provides you with all the tools and techniques you need to set up as a fully qualified and confident practitioner:

1) Training in the tools used for working with, and resolving emotional wounds held in the Shadow.

2) Training in holding clients therapeutically, both inside and outside the client session. We explore how your own shadows and the client’s shadows may play out in these interactions, and how such interactions can be used as a healing tool.

3) A complete training in Authentic Communication, a way of speaking which explores conflict and allows you to express your thoughts, feelings and emotions clearly and cleanly. This framework can be used to improve relationships in every aspect of your life and work.

4) An in-depth exploration of your own shadows. The biggest asset you bring to your clients is yourself. The better you know your own shadows, and the more work you do to heal them, the better you will be able to support your clients.

5) Techniques for working with the four aspects of the personality: The Feeling Body, The Action Taker, The Heart-Centred Leader, and The Transformer. These have their roots in the concept of the four fundamental human archetypes – Lover, Warrior, Sovereign, and Magician – and expresses their qualities in language relevant and accessible to a wide range of clients.

What We Offer:
Healing The Shadow Course Structure

The starting point is a two year course for those who would like to work with individuals in a one to one setting. There is an additional year’s training  available for those who would like to go on and facilitate group workshops. We believe it is essential to have the skills to safely hold and work with individuals as a foundation to progressing on to holding groups.

The training consists of:

●  Ten experiential training weekends in each year of the course.

●  Two personal tutorials each year.

●  Recorded practice sessions between training weekends.

●  Small training groups of approximately six participants to ensure individual attention.

●  Ample opportunity to do your own emotional process work in the group and to explore and heal your own Shadow.

●  A well held, safe space for personal development work.

●  Teaching in the theory and practice of working with the Shadow.

●  An exploration of basic counselling skills to equip you with the skills needed to take a professional approach to seeing clients.

●  Advice and guidance on setting up a Healing The Shadow practice.

●  Mentoring and supervision are available on completion of training.

●  The trainers are highly experienced practitioners Marianne Hill and Rod Boothroyd who have their own full-time Healing The Shadow practices.

The nature of the course is very suitable for individuals devoted to their own personal development work as well as those wishing to become a fully qualified and insured practitioner.
