I offer counselling, therapies, soul therapy training and events/sacred groups to bring your awakened self to life.   I love to help you reach your potential in life, in love and in joy.             

I am Anna Grace-Jacobs – Effective, trusted and respected therapist and healer  – over 35 years experience and qualifications with children, young people adults, families and couples.

  • I link embodied knowing (ie the body as a guide to life, feelings, choices) with psychological insights ( the mind’s capacity to understand, think, see)
  • Based on forty years of meditation, shamanic training, psychological therapies,energy healing modalities ( what may be called the more unseen aspects of living)
  • Deepened by the creative process (creativity is inherent in life – when we are not creative we are not fully alive).
  • The package will look different for each person… and will depend on your experience in life, your needs, how we relate together, what you wish, and what we decide to contract for.

Please look around my site, join my facebook page, come to an event, or contact me if you are ready to explore one to one work.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Exploring the Landscape of our Psyche – A Creative Arts Day for All

You missed it – next one out soon!

On this day we discover the value of media for growth – using paint, clay, collage and drawing, we dig into the landscape of our psyche to create, share and discover the power of arts as a tool for transformation.  This is a CPD day for practising therapists, counsellors and holistic practitioners and an experiential day for all those interested in the power of the arts to offer growth into potential.

You are welcome to come if you have undertaken a reasonable amount of personal growth and have the resilience to dig deep – if you are unsure, or if you have current mental health issues, please contact me first. My intention is to be inclusive but to keep you safe. Thankyou.
