“According to Celtic spiritual tradition, the soul shines all around the body like a luminous cloud. When you are very open, appreciative, and trusting with another person, your two souls flow together. This deeply felt bond with another person means you have found your anam cara, or “Soul Friend.”~ John O’Donohue
In spiritual accompaniment, I work in the spirit of Anamcara as described above. The Anam Cara relationship provides you with a spiritual counsellor, unconditional listener and advisor; someone with a mature spiritual practice and intuitive wisdom who is able to help you recognise and listen to your own heart song.
Spiritual Counselling is not like traditional counselling. Although I have a faith, I have no religious agenda, and I will always meet you where you are. The Anam Cara relationship helps you to remember who you are, and it helps to guide you on your personal journey with more clarity. It is not psychotherapy. A session can take a number of approaches but is essentially embodied. I may offer meditation, breathing and centering techniques, poetry, prayer…
Appointments are 50 mins and cost £60. This can be in person at Tranquility Yoga Studio or online (Zoom)
Tending the Spirit
Walks in Nature or with Shinrin Yoku (Forest Bathing)
We will go for a walk together and explore your spiritual journey, guided by nature, the seasons and the elements. The Japanese practice of Shinrin Yoku – or Forest Bathing, is known to have deeply therapeutic benefits. We might take our spiritual accompaniment session among the trees, and let them do their healing work. Sessions may include conversation, reflection, meditation, prayer, movement, breathwork or journalling, according to your needs, desires and comforts.
Appointments are 75 mins and cost £80. In person at Tranquility Yoga Studio in East Sussex.
I am here to be this for you if you feel that is what your heart is seeking. I can offer this in a number of ways, from regular guidance sessions, informal online dialogue, mentoring or support.

I work with the utmost integrity and regard for confidentiality. We set out our boundaries and goals as a contract at the beginning of the relationship. If we decide together that I am not the right person for you to work with, then I will happily recommend other sources of support.
“Your anam cara always beholds your light and beauty, and accepts you for who you truly are. In Celtic spirituality, the anam cara friendship awakens the fullness and mystery of your life. You are joined in an ancient and eternal union with humanity that cuts across all barriers of time, convention, philosophy, and definition. When you are blessed with an anam cara, the Irish believe, you have arrived at that most sacred place: home.”~ John O’Donohue
