Storytelling at Stonehenge

I am a counsellor, psychotherapist (http://davidengland.net/) and shamanic guide.

I qualified as a counsellor in 1996 and as a psychotherapist and group worker in 1998. I have since run a private psychotherapy and counselling practice in Maidenhead, as well as being a facilitator on personal development courses.

I trained to be a psychotherapist and group worker at The Institute of Psychosynthesis, a mainstream psychology concerned with the impact of past experiences upon the present. At the same time, Psychosynthesis is a psychospiritual psychology, concerned with the future, what may be emerging in a person’s life, its purpose, meaning and values.

A psychospiritual psychology which looks at the future as well as the past has a close affinity with shamanic practice, both being committed to the care of Soul and the expansion of Soul.  I have a long association with shamanism, which was one of the modules early in my psychotherapy training, and my continued interest culminated in a practitioner training with Eagle’s Wing. As an experienced psychospiritual psychotherapist of long standing, my Soulfulness shamanic practice is a natural extension of my work.

I am also an author (see http://berkshirefolktales.co.uk/) a storyteller (http://davidengland.co.uk/), a member of Equity, and I sometimes weave stories and poems into my work as a psychotherapist and shamanic guide.
