Shadow Work Coaching Devon

"We do not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious." Carl Jung

Shadow work provides a safe space where all parts of you are welcome, where you can transform issues at the 'root' and find the 'gold' in even the darkest places...

Shadow work is an intensive, experiential and often cathartic process which allows you to explore all parts of yourself deeply and, above all, safely.


Shadow Work can empower you to explore and change unhelpful behaviour patterns, and understand and heal situations that 'trigger' you, so that you can live life more fully and with more choice.

Shadow Work can be done in two ways:

  • In one-to-one coaching sessions which last around 4-5 hours and include time for initial exploration, the main 'core' of the work and integration time.

  • As part of a group on a Shadow Work Weekend. For forthcoming group opportunities see our events.

"When we deny [our shadows] or project them onto others... they rule or restrict us... Embraced, they become part of our fullness, a further depth to our soul, a deeper and richer foundation from which to grow."

Ian Siddons Heginworth,

'Environmental Arts Therapy and the Tree of Life''

"The sessions with you were quite extraordinary and I was left with a beautiful sense of this being a whole new beginning... I can't thank you enough for your amazing intuition, support and care."


"Having already spent years unravelling and uncovering emotional wounds and feeling like I was on a rollercoaster, I felt little wary of what I might experience in the shadow work sessions.  As ever, Mel's courage and humility and skill with which she supported me, and helped to navigate my internal landscape, enabled me to explore with a delightful lack of self consciousness.  I expected to encounter dark and terrifying parts of myself.  I was surprised and so happy to find that actually - I just found 'me'."
Terry, Exmoor.
