For many, exploring the  shadow can feel heavy and carry with it a sense of fear, but it doesn’t need to be this way.  As coaches, helping clients to navigate this terrain can be one of our greatest honors and rewards.  

In this Masterclass you will explore how you can transform your clients’ relationship to their inner critic so they can release saboteur tendencies, reclaim their power and have a whole lot more fun with life.

This Masterclass is for established coaches and holistic therapists who want to upskill quickly so they can work with their clients at an even deeper level.

Our Masterclasses are designed to help you integrate coaching and therapeutic tools in real time so that you can apply them within your work immediately.

While the shadow has been traditionally conceived of as our wounded self and weighty dark side, it is also at the heart of our humanity and can be the source of our deepest empathy and humor.  

Many coaches and therapists can feel out of their depth or uncertain when their clients’ inner critic or shadow rears its head. This work will give you a greater sense of confidence and certainty about how you can support your clients to tap into their wisdom, listen to their needs, and accelerate their healing and growth.


Throughout this two-hour masterclass you will learn key principles of shadow work and gain practical tools that you can use in session and that can be given to your clients as inner work that they can do at home.
