Simone Silver Path
I have worked as a therapist for 35 years And have a person centred training. I work with adults, couples and families. For the last twenty years I have worked with young people with challenging behaviours, working with wilderness psychotherapy and the four shields. I am the author of Holding the Space, a radical approach to working with trauma and abuse. This work has been researched by Strathclyde University, the department of residential childcare. There is also a film about his work on the C4EO website. My work is about transformation I work with Ceremony and the Creative Arts as therapy as well as your connection with nature.
I offer one to one work, family, couples and small group work. I also offer clinical supervision and consultation to professionals working with children and young people in care. I have trained with The School of Lost Borders in the Four Shields and with the Ojai Foundation in the Way of Council. I have also completed twenty years of Shamanic Training which I use therapeutically to heal the soul and strengthen the spirit.
I am 69 years of age and in love with life, I want you to be in love with life, come and see me.
