Shamanic counselling differs from most types of counselling in that the client goes directly to the spirits for help. The spirits are our true counsellors.
Shamanic counselling enables us to find the source of –and solution to –the challenges and difficulties which we all face from time to time. This brings us personal empowerment,wisdom and healing. The shamanic journey also enhances our relationship with our spirits and can help us along our path in this life.
The shamanic counsellor works by first teaching the client to undertake the shamanic journey so that they can meet their own spirit teachers and helpers. By journeying,the client can seek help,healing or advice directly from the spirits. This can include personal healing,help with life changes,decision making and problem solving,work on bereavement,relationships,depression,emotional issues,spiritual development and much more.
The counsellor’s job is first to help the client to focus on and formulate the question for the journey. The client speaks the journey out loud,so that it can be discussed afterwards with the counsellor. The counsellor does not interpret the journey,but uses his or her knowledge and experience of the shamanic process to ask careful questions which allow the client to understand what has been experienced in a deeper and more meaningful way.
