Shadow, the hidden component of our character which we have consigned to the dark recesses of our psyche, comes out inexplicably and horribly at times, embarrassing us, surprising us, and – if we are attuned to it – offering us the possibility of deeper insights into our true selves. And just as it does this with us – mental health practitioners whose stock-in-trade is self-awareness – you can bet your bottom dollar that so, too, does it affect our clients, who may have only a glimmering of insight into what they are dealing with.

In this video, Richard Hill helps you to recognise when clients are meeting the shadow, so that you can be maximally capable of helping them to “mine” the inner gold that may be surfacing, albeit in a sneaky, “sideways” manner.
