Shamanic Counselling is a powerful, transformative method, a spiritual form of counselling and guidance, that follows the techniques of shamanism, which is an ancient strategy that dates back at least 50,000 years,  for contacting and utilising hidden reality or non-ordinary reality to acquire knowledge, healing for oneself and others and problem solving.  

The Shamanic Counselling method was developed as a highly effective system of personal problem-solving and personal empowerment.  

Shamanic Counselling was developed by Michael Harner, Anthropologist, Founder and Director of The Foundation for Shamanic Studies and Author of The Way of the Shaman.  Michael Harner is widely acknowledged as the world's foremost authority on shamanism and has had an enormous influence on both the academic and lay worlds.




Setting a Clear Intention For Your Journey

As the client you will learn how to set clear and focused intention for your journey into non-ordinary reality. 


The Journey

Central to shamanic counselling is the shamanic journey, a method of directly contacting your deeper knowing, intuition, psyche, sub-conscious. 

You will learn to effectively journey into non-ordinary reality to receive guidance.

A steady drumbeat of 4-7bps with its healing potential is used to create a non-ordinary state, a theta state, from which, it is possible to receive healing, wisdom and guidance.  

The journey is spoken out loud and recorded and a copy will be given to you at the end of the session.


Reviewing Your Journey

Once the journey is complete, you will immediately listen to the journey, in silence, and the invitation is to access and continue the journey once again.  


Making Sense of Your Journey

Afterward, you will be supported in discerning, mining and making sense your journey for the relevant guidance in relation to your intention.  

This too is recorded for your benefit and a copy will be given to you at the end of the session.



In essence, you become a practitioner of divinatory shamanism, by allowing yourself to obtain answers, direction, guidance & healing directly from deep within your own psyche.

Shamanic Counselling empowers you and avoids fostering dependency on the counsellor, as the counsellor, simply provides instruction, orientation, and methodological advice based on the principles of shamanism and shamanic journeying.
