The training is highly experiential and focuses not only on teaching powerful and effective techniques, but also on each individual trainee’s personal development, including the exploration and healing of their shadows. With an intake of only six trainees each year, supported by two trainers, the work is intensive and each student receives personalised attention.
Our two year trainings are suitable both for those new to working in the field of personal development and also those currently working as coaches, counsellors or therapists who wish to add these powerful techniques to their existing practice.
On completion of the two year training a third year of training is also available, which gives the additional skills required to facilitate deep emotional process work in a group or workshop setting. We also offer further one year trainings in couples’ work and in supervision.
The Founders, Marianne Hill and Rod Boothroyd, are well known experts in the field of shadow work. They both have busy practices working with individual clients and for many years they ran their hugely popular group workshops and healing journeys together.
Marianne also has many years of experience in training psychotherapists and counsellors to work more deeply with their clients’ shadow sides. Rod Boothroyd is author of Warrior, Magician, Lover, King: A Guide To The Male Archetypes For The 21st Century. This book brings to the world Rod’s vast knowledge of human archetypes gained from many years of facilitating transformational process work for men.
Rod is now retired from full time teaching. However, he remains very involved in the training as an elder and mentor, interviewing prospective trainees alongside Marianne and supporting the trainees, trainers and training assistants from the sidelines.
Marianne continues to lead the training, with her co trainers Rachel Mitchell and Laura Stoddart and support trainer Richard Martyn.
