According to Celtic spiritual tradition, the soul shines all around the body like a luminous cloud. When you are very open, appreciative, and trusting with another person, your two souls flow together. This deeply felt bond with another person means you have found your anam cara, or “Soul Friend.” Your anam cara always beholds your light and beauty, and accepts you for who you truly are. In Celtic spirituality, the anam cara friendship awakens the fullness and mystery of your life. You are joined in an ancient and eternal union with humanity that cuts across all barriers of time, convention, philosophy, and definition. When you are blessed with an anam cara, the Irish believe, you have arrived at that most sacred place: home.” ~ John O’Donohue

The professional Anam Cara relationship provides you with a spiritual director, unconditional listener and advisor. Someone with a mature spiritual practice who is able to help you recognise and listen to your own heart song.  It is not counselling or psychotherapy. The Anam Cara  sees you in relationship to Source, where you are already perfect. In the spiritual context, the dis-ease that you feel comes from the illusion of disconnection from your true self. The Anam Cara relationship helps you to remember this  and helps to guide you on your personal journey. If you are looking for deeper psychological therapy, then Anam Cara may not be for you.

I am here  to be this for you if you feel that is what your heart is seeking. I can offer this in a number of ways, from regular guidance sessions, informal online dialogue, or in my “Just One Day” personal retreat.

This may also suit you if you are a Yoga teacher, complementary therapist or healer looking for mentoring or supervision.

Boundaries

Anam Cara is not a replacement for medical or psychological treatment. I am skilled at supporting people spiritually and emotionally, but I always make it clear that I am not a psychotherapist, so if you have a serious emotional or psychological issue, then  my advice will always be to speak to your doctor or a qualified counsellor or psychotherapist.  If we make this discovery during our day together, then this will be my recommendation, and I can refer you to another professional if required. Similarly, if we encounter a physical issue that needs professional guidance, I will always refer. My aim is to work with the utmost integrity in this regard. 

Whilst Anam Cara is offered as soul friendship, I also make it clear that this is a professional relationship, offered in the spirit of love and support, and professional boundaries apply.
