Pat has been counselling, coaching and facilitating personal transformation for over 25 years. She is a Certified Shadow Work® Coach working in Bristol, UK.
Pat first came across Shadow Work in 2006 via Women in Power and found it to be an exceptionally powerful and coherent approach for personal healing and transformation.
Previously she had worked for 10 years as an integrative psychotherapist in inner-city Bristol, before taking a sabbatical that segued into living in the Horn of Africa for 12 years, working in Somalia as a peace builder as part of a close-knit team. While savouring the opportunity for immersion in different cultures, she gained invaluable experience of navigating hostile environments, crisis management,coping with loss – and living life to the full.
Through her rich life experience of creating positive change in a range of different settings, Pat is able to draw on deep resources and intuition to be more fully present for others in their own journeys towards richer, more fulfilled and joyful lives.
Alongside her work as a Shadow Work® coach, Pat is involved in bringing a volunteer-led healing programme for military veterans, Veterans Return, to the UK, as a reflection of her continuing commitment to social as well as personal healing.
Pat also holds a PhD in Social Psychology – and has a thriving vegetable patch.
