Sunset in the Forest
A safe space where all parts of you are welcome,
where you can transform issues at the 'root'
and find the 'gold' in even the darkest places...

"We do not become enlightened
by imagining figures of light,
but by making the darkness conscious."
Carl Jung


Shadow Work provides a safe space where all parts of you are welcome, where you can transform issues at the 'root' and find the 'gold' in even the darkest places...

Shadow Work is an intensive, experiential and often cathartic process which allows you to explore all parts of yourself deeply and, above all, safely.


Shadow Work can empower you to explore and change unhelpful behaviour patterns, and understand and heal situations that 'trigger' you, so that you can live life more fully and with more choice.

An initial session lasts around 5 hours. The fee is £250 - £350

Follow up sessions are around 3 hours, for which the fee is £150 - £210

(I charge on sliding scale, please choose which rate is affordable for you within the scale.)

Shadow Work sessions can be done in person, in my therapy room in Dartmoor, Devon, UK


Shadow Work sessions can be done online, via Zoom, with the session usually being split over 2 or 3 days.

I am also a certified Shadow Work® Group Facilitator and regularly run weekend workshops with my partner Tim Hall. You can find details of our upcoming Shadow Work Weekends on our website here:

"When we deny [our shadows] or project them onto others... they rule or restrict us... Embraced, they become part of our fullness, a further depth to our soul, a deeper and richer foundation from which to grow."

Ian Siddons Heginworth,

'Environmental Arts Therapy & the Tree of Life'


"The sessions with you were quite extraordinary and I was left with a beautiful sense of this being a whole new beginning... I can't thank you enough for your amazing intuition, support and care."



"Having already spent years unravelling and uncovering emotional wounds and feeling like I was on a rollercoaster, I felt little wary of what I might experience in the shadow work sessions.  As ever, Mel's courage and humility and skill with which she supported me, and helped to navigate my internal landscape, enabled me to explore with a delightful lack of self consciousness.  I expected to encounter dark and terrifying parts of myself.  I was surprised and so happy to find that actually - I just found 'me'."


"Shadow Work is a fascinating journey of inner exploration and self-discovery; [it] assisted me in revealing my own behavioural patterns that have been holding me back from reaching my full potential. During the sessions I felt so safe and well held that I was able to relax, comfortably, and really open up into deep healing. I have tried so many therapies and alternative techniques to get to the core of who I am. It wasn't until [my] Shadow Work sessions with Melanie that I had genuine and life changing realisations and shifts of blocked energy."
