At Inner Solutions we use a synthesis of modalities and facilitated processes from personal, therapeutic and spiritual growth technologies that we have trained, studied and practiced over the past 25 years.
We use Shadow Work® together with other disciplines as a way of engaging with parts of your character that you would like to change.
We put great emphasis on providing a safe and shame free setting for this to unfold.
Often, so called ´negative´ parts of our behaviour and personality are not very obvious to ourselves. But very obvious to others - they are just outside of our awareness where we cannot see them clearly - they are `in shadow` - as we call it.
These aspects of ourselves are often lingering outside out conscious awareness for very good and practical reasons, including not wanting to be hurt and shamed for being who we are - again.
But these ´shadow´ parts of us directly and silently influence how we experience ourselves, others and the world.
Shadows silently dictate our default reactions in uncomfortable or stressful situations.
Our Shadow can poison our relationships with fear, anger and resentment.
Our shadows give a voice to our inner-critic.
The Shadow contains the source of the invisible toxic shame we feel but can't stop.
It is the deep desire to be be genuinely loved - but shows up as desperate and needy.
Shadows and shame are at the root of all addictions.
It is also the place that holds most precious parts of who you are - hidden and safe from further harm.
At inner-solutions, we strive to help facilitate your journey with these shadow aspects of yourself.
Because, experience has taught us, the best solution is in your own hands.
We believe you are the only one who knows what is right for you. We will follow and guide you through your own inner landscape, to let you discover the inner solutions you need. Not what we think you need.
All of us, deep inside, know what we want and need. Yet, all too often we don't know how to get what we want and need. Those inner solutions are often buried and hidden by shame and suffering we have experienced as part of our human condition.
We often call these deepest needs - these healthy and hidden parts - ´ Gold in the Shadow`
Somewhere along the line we have chosen to keep ourselves safe and protected by hiding away those natural and golden parts of ourselves.
We honour and respect that in you. You done what was needed to survive and perhaps tolerate, intolerable situations.
Yet, everything has a lifespan, and the question today, is, how it is working for you now?
Is being stuck in this old way of being still working for you? Are your shadows destroying the quality of your inner life, personal relationships, with self sabotaging behaviour ?
We know we cannot change the past. What's done is done. But often we find ourselves stuck in a heart-breaking acceptance that, ´ this is who I am ´ or ´ that's just the way things are ´.
The good news is, although we cannot change the past, we can deeply change our relationship with it. We can change our relationship with it to where we are not being driven around blindly by our negative life experiences and their consequences. We can completely redefine our relationship to the way we think, act and feel about ourselves, and the world at large.
We are not stuck in our past nor the woundings we took.
When you can re-integrate the ´gold in your shadow´back into your everyday life. Life will take on a new meaning.
There are people worldwide who, after doing Shadow Work, have redefined the quality of their lives as being simply, before and after Shadow Work®.
We understand this work is not for everyone, but if you would like to get to know us and have a chat about what we do, or what Shadow Work entails, just call or email us and we'll set a date to chat and see if this is right and appropriate for you.
Working in small groups, we teach and facilitate personal growth work using Shadow Work®
HOW IS SHADOW WORK® IN A GROUP ?
You can choose to experience Shadow Work® in a Group setting.
In a Shadow Work® Seminar, you can work in a small group with others who have come to examine their shadows together.
Here you can also share the path with others, who will help motivate you with acceptance and encouragement.
You may choose to learn just by watching how others process their shadows.
When you see others finding the courage hidden within their fear, the release from their grief, or the power in their anger, or the freedom in their joy, you may be able to apply that learning directly to your own situation.
If you choose to join us in a group session, we ask that you have a short chat with us first to determine that our work is the right choice for you and your situation.
For info about Group Workshops contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Individual Coaching provides privacy and anonymity. Your time, your pace. Also available online.
Private Coaching Sessions
You may choose to experience a private coaching context.
You may prefer the privacy of working without other people present.
Coaching can also be done online, where we arrange times that suits us all.
We can arrange do an online coaching with you, to help you identify what may be in Shadow for you, and explore various ways to stop acting from these shadows in ways that are right and appropriate for you.
This way you have the opportunity of privacy from wherever you are in the world.
Private one-to-one Coaching is done generally done in our seminar room, although we also travel to coach too.

Learn the tools of freeing yourself from toxic shame
Shame is the silent soul destroyer that most people don't even recognise they are feeling. The primary reason for this is that Shame attaches itself to other feelings and emotions, and is experienced together with them. So, for example, when you are feeling angry or sad about a situation, often a deeper level of toxic shame could be driving your actions and thoughts, and drive you to act in ways that you regret and feel more ashamed of later. This sets in motion a viscous silent circle of shame based behaviour, that you end up accepting as ´ just the way you, or things are´.
Only when you can recognise these deeper silent levels of toxic shame that are in play on time, can you implement ways to stop it indirectly influencing your inner world. At the roots of depression, suicide, addiction and violence, toxic shame will be somewhere at play behind your back.
In our online and coaching work, we help you recognise where shame is, the difference between health shame and toxic shame, strategies and methods of recognising when and where its affecting your life and how to set healthy boundaries with others in your personal and work life in a shame free and shaming free way.
Although its a difficult issue to talk about, we are open and experienced enough in our private and professional lives to speak with you about any toxic shame issues you may recognise.
Learn how to clearly communicate in a clean and shame free way.
Take a survey and identify your unconscious default strategies you use when dealing with stressful situations
Take the Shadow Types Survey
Includes a 2-hour consultation
If you are the kind of person who is drawn to deep inner transformation and self-development, understanding your Shadow Type will be like pushing down on the accelerator of your personal growth journey.
The Shadow Types survey identifies 12 innate tendencies that we all have. Our personality results from which of these tendencies we favor and which ones we avoid. The Shadow Types survey gives you a profile of your own, unique combination of these tendencies as well as your dominant Shadow Type.
The Shadow Types system paints 3-dimensional portraits of 12 main personality types. Each portrait reveals a particular pattern of your wounding experiences and traces how your personality formed around your core wounding. These wounding patterns drive much of our thinking, feeling and behaviour, and also show how your Shadow type typically reacts to stress and what challenges you likely face in your daily life.
These insights into our inner dynamics prepare us to make considerable progress on our journey of personal growth work.
