HomeHolistic counselling

Whether we realise it or not, everyone is on a spiritual journey. No matter how far we have come, we are all in the process of healing our wounds and aligning with our soul’s purpose. This also means that everyone is actually a healer, because we all possess the ability to heal ourselves.

Unfortunately, focusing only on love and light is not enough, we also must be able to visit the underworld and face our Shadow. I know from first-hand experience how scary and difficult it can be. The result is very rewarding, though, because it is the only way to truly heal and create real changes within and without.

If you have been wondering how to proceed with your inner work and are looking for a co-traveler, you came to the right place.

A tree can only grow as high as its roots grow deep.

What to expect:

During a session of holistic counselling, we will look at your life by taking into account its physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual aspects, with an emphasis on unresolved traumas and unintegrated Shadow elements. More specifically, I will help you meet the parts of your mind that are carrying a traumatic experience, and thus had to be locked away and buried inside the unconscious (to read more about how the mind deals with trauma, click here).

My approach is informed by Jungian psychology, transpersonal psychology, and the IFS model of the mind (IFS: internal family systems). I also like to include embodiment practices and somatic release, since trauma is always stored in the body. Whenever possible, I will suggest that we have the sessions outside in nature, for example in the forest. Being in nature helps with inner work, because we become immediately more connected to our Self (to read more about the Self, click here).

The content of each session and the tools I will use depend on your current needs and the stage of your journey. If at any point I realise that you would benefit from a modality that I’m not offering, I will gladly refer you to someone that I know and who is competent in that modality.

You can contact me via email (olivier [at] shadowdance.fi) or Telegram (@ShadowDance99). I live in Jyväskylä, Finland. I preferably work in person, but holistic counselling can also be done remotely via video call. I can give the sessions in English, French, or German.

So that we get to know each other and find out if we want to work together, I recommend starting with a preliminary consultation of 30 min, free of charge.

One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious. The latter procedure, however, is disagreeable and therefore not popular.
