This week Ziada talks to Liz Remande-Guyard and Mary Ann about their work as Shadow Work Coaches and Liz’s work as a Shadow Work Facilitator. We explore what Shadow Work is, why they have found it helpful in their own lives and what you might experience if you decide to give it a try!
Liz Remande-Guyard is a certified one-to-one Shadow work coach and certified group facilitator working in Brighton, UK. She works in English and French.
Having always been interested in what our bodies hold of our personal history, Liz originally started by studying and practising Dance Movement Therapy: a way to use movement to access trauma held in our body, and to find ways to release it.
She has been working in the field of personal development for the last 20 years, supporting at-risk and very challenging young people, managing year-long therapeutic programmes with them, including training their mentors and holding group sessions. Liz then founded and was a director of her own training consultancy for 10 years, delivering training courses in the field of youth and community for both young people and youth professionals. She has extensive skills in coaching, supervision and training trainers and a long standing experience in holding both groups and individuals in a very safe way.
Through Shadow Work, Liz is now working deeper with what has always been her passion and belief: supporting people on their journey to heal deeply buried wounds from the past. She knows, from her own path, how powerful this can be. In the Shadow Work approach she has found the most shame free, non-judgemental and most accepting medium, where some of the most complex, embarrassing and difficult issues can be explored and more wholeness can be found.
She has 3 children, and has experienced how transformative Shadow Work can be in supporting us to break the cycle of patterns inherited from our own parents, and have more of a chance to be the parents we want to be.
As well as being the Co-host of the Podcast and Director of Jijaze Mary Ann is also a certified one-to-one Shadow Work Coach working in both English and KiSwahili in London and virtually.
