One-to-One Coach, Group Facilitator, Trainer


If you are exploring the possibility of working with me, I’d like to thank you for your time and attention in reading what follows. If what is written here resonates with you, please get in touch. I will be happy to answer any questions.

I have spent most of my professional life since 1996 as a coach and have been a certified Shadow Work coach since 2014 and group facilitator since 2015. I’m also a Shadow Work Coaching trainer, mother, cake baker and Company Secretary of Women in Power CIC. I live in Brighton with my husband and two sons and work both online and in person in Lewes, East Sussex, at The Open Door Clinic, offering Shadow Work and Neurofeedback.

I’ve had the privilege of working with some extraordinary people, from students to parents to CEOs of publicly-quoted companies. Yet the most challenging work I have done relates to my own experience of complex PTSD, both my own and that of close family members. Shadow Work gave me the compassion and skills to embrace all of life’s experience, no matter how dark or difficult. All my work is trauma-informed, and I am currently in training to become a Somatic Experiencing practitioner. I can accompany you to the places within you that you may not have been able to access:

“For me, that is true love: to witness someone in their darkest moments and go all the way with them until they find their own spark of light. I cannot express how grateful I am for this healing grace.” (client quote)

It’s hard to put into words what Shadow Work makes possible, but if you believe that there’s more to you and your life than is currently available to you, these words from Debbie Ford might help:

“Shadow Work allows us to revisit the experience of our innocence that allows us to accept all of who we are at every moment, so that we can have a healthy, happy, complete human existence.”

Client Testimonials

“There are lots of different kinds of intelligence and Elizabeth moves between them and speaks articulately from them all. It’s extraordinary and unusual to encounter someone who has that at their disposal and to have it at my service.”    KE

“Working with Elizabeth was challenging, inspiring, and liberating. With her support, keen intelligence and empathetic insight I was able to reconsider my old beliefs and take possession of my talents and capacity to contribute to the world. My confidence has grown enormously. I have far more peace of mind and I no longer panic about the future.”    AS

“I am so grateful for our time together. I have been ‘shaken around’ but also illuminated in different ways: about my anger, about my boundary-making and about my soul journey.”     SP

“Thank you. What an incredibly helpful hour that was with you on Skype. This just feels right at the root of my life and how it’s been playing out.”   AC
