Client testimonials for our trainers Rod and Marianne

Marianne and Rod are incredible masters at facilitation, instruction, holding the space and guiding us through what can be some of the deepest parts of ourselves. They are not only incredibly empathetic but also so well experienced and you cannot help but feel safe in their hands. Even after 6 months of intensive work I plan to continue with both of them on this journey of love and healing.

One of the most profound elements of the Healing The Shadow experience was the compassionate, accepting and authentic space that Marianne and Rod held, and the expertise with which they guided the process, responding intuitively and courageously in every moment.  I was aware from the depth of their compassion and the profound integrity of their behaviour that I was in the presence of two facilitators who had done much of their own personal work and this helped me trust them to guide me, which is significant as my mind often thinks it knows better!! I’m reaping the benefits in my life and wondering when I can continue my journey to go even deeper.

Under the masterful guidance of Marianne and Rod, I arrived at a place that I couldn’t imagine beforehand, feeling an inner peace I never thought was possible. The group became my long lost friends. And like long lost friends, we needed no apologies for our behaviour when we met, we picked up where we left off, graciously and flawlessly, sharing our life’s stories knowing they would be held safely and that we could all learn from each other.

I had attended a weekend workshop several years ago with Marianne and I knew from that weekend that a year’s journey with her would touch parts of me that I had not reached in my own healing journey before – and I have been journeying for some thirty years.

Meeting Rod on the first day was so refreshing for me. He is a special kind of a man in terms of being totally in touch with his feelings, and very intuitive. To have two such talented, compassionate, safe, thorough, passionate, knowledgeable, wise, supportive and caring souls facilitating the year was truly transformational for me.

Testimonials from Marianne’s trainings for psychotherapists. (Please note: these shorter trainings are no longer available.)

I attended this course recently and was blown away. This work is very powerful and a great tool to have in the consulting room. I have used it many times now and find it very clarifying. I found my whole inner world change in the weekend attended, so much for the better. I am now much more at home with my power and able to hold that in relationships and within myself. Honestly, the world is now a different place, one in which I can hold myself and worry less about what people think or want, not that I don’t respect that, but it no longer worries me. I highly recommend this training!

Thank you for your fantastic training… I have found it invaluable in my practice in helping clients speak from their different parts, and giving their darker voices a space.

Marianne you are an amazing teacher; clear, deeply authentic, hugely permission giving, with fine care and attention to detail. You managed to teach the tools in a very accessible and  clear way. I feel my work will be much enhanced by this training, I feel so inspired and excited, and I also feel my own journey and personal wounds received such beautiful care and integration that I really do feel something deep has been brought to healing within me. I thank you so much for that.

Dominique SakoilskyCouples and relationship counsellor

I found the shadow work training extremely valuable in terms of personal development and working on aspects of self. Also I learned a variety of tools to take away. Most importantly I found that the learning environment was safe with genuine people that allowed me to share my experience and develop self.
