I work with people one-to-one to facilitate awakening and self-actualisation.
I work with teachers, leaders and creatives who have specific aspects of practice they want to work on, in service of bringing their full whole-hearted, intelligent, powerful and healed selves into the world for the benefit of all beings, including themselves.
Most people who come to me have already progressed pretty far in their chosen practice tradition(s).
I run sessions over video or voice call that are 60 minutes long. I often use shamanic journeying to unlock new states and untangle certain experiences.
I work with people on a one-off basis and with blocks of up to 6 sessions.
My guiding has the capacity to be deeply transformational for people who are ready to make changes to their experience, but it requires a bit of courage to show up and be present with what is unfolding.
Shamanic Journeying Meditation
Shamanic journeying can be used for different purposes – to explore a specific topic or question, to create more presence, to open up new ways of being and experiencing, to deepen a connection between people, to process trauma, to reintegrate shadows or to reveal a new aspect of experience to people.
I use it regularly in my coaching (without the use of psychedelics). The format is fairly simple and yet deeply profound. It involves journeying into the energetic and archetypal realm together and exploring things from the perspective of the imaginal realm. It can both reach new layers of experience and create more freedom for expressing what is already there.
When I am working one-to-one with someone, I normally frame it as an interpersonal meditation, where we drop into a meditative state and then journey together through a shared conversation.
During the journey you may experience visualisations, emotions, energetic sensations and thoughts that tell a story, bringing a sense of clarity and a deepening of experience.
When working with me these are the sort of things people explore: opening up or deepening non-dual states, connecting with the innate mystical nature of experience, opening up aspects of being (e.g. body, heart, mind or soul opening), untangling specific knots in experience, increasing capacity for processing difficult stuff, understanding aspects of experience more deeply, seeing the interconnected and intuitive nature of all experience.
I really like difficult questions and am happy to explore the depths of ambitious practice with people.
Important Note on Awakening
I can help facilitate deeply transformational shifts in experience and consciousness, but I don’t believe that there is an ultimate truth or end goal that you can arrive at or that there is a magic button for removing people’s suffering.
Everything is a process that you are experiencing in connection with the environment around you and life is often hard. Healing and awakening is about connecting with life more whole-heartedly and sincerely, in order to be able to show up in a more full and effective way.
This process can be difficult but it is the route to opening up a sense of ease, presence, resilience, love, connection, belonging, purpose and meaning, as well as being more in touch with the truth of experience.
Things You Need
If I am working with you, it will need a few things from you for it to work effectively:
One – Your Humanity
To work with me, you will need to be willing to let go of religious frameworks. It’s great if these are useful for you, but if you use terminology for describing the types of practices you do or experiences you are having I will ask you to also describe things in your own words. To let go of the raft.
I find this gives a much richer, more interesting and more specific picture of what is happening in your present moment experience and allows you to start where you are, which is where awakening happens, rather than in the idea of where you are.
Two – Commitment
You will need some kind of daily or regular practice. It can be very formal or very informal but you need to be able to set aside some time to be present on a regular basis if you want to see consistent changes.
If you’re struggling to maintain a regular practice we can work with that but there needs to be some kind of desire for and commitment to developing one that suits you and your goals.
Three – Self-Management
You will need to be comfortable with a fairly non-hierarchical approach. Ultimately you are responsible for your practice. As your teacher, I am there to support you in your journey and explorations.
Most people take away a list of practices or things they want to experiment with in life after each session.
Four – Courage
You will need to have a real desire to change and the willingness to go out of your comfort zone, to challenge your preconceptions and to be vulnerable.
Change and growth comes from these things. While people often report moments of relief and validation, where they feel they can put down something heavy that they have been carrying, most of my work involves people facing something emotionally difficult, working with a part of life they find hard or them completely changing their perspective on something.
It requires courage and vulnerability to get to these break-throughs.

I charge based on a flexible payment system, because it means that the sessions are more accessible to a wider range of people.
The suggested cost is £100 per 60 minute session; but please offer what feels right to you. I’d recommend paying an amount of money that makes the work feel meaningful and significant to you, without inducing stress.
If you are interested in working together, send me an email with a bit about you and your practice and we’ll go from there.
