Hello and welcome...

Hi I'm Ceryn, Soul-Led Counselling Therapist, Soul Support Mentor, Writer and Guide.

 

To put it bluntly I'm all about helping you to overcome whatever is holding you back, make the most of your time here and remember the wisdom, power, beauty and all out bloody amazingness of your divinely human, soulful self. 

 

I LOVE what I do, and I'm always honoured to work with amazing people who decide it's time to delve into their stories and embrace the fullness of themselves. 

But, I'm a firm believer that before you can trust someone with the things you hold most sacred, you need to get to know them. So here are some of the things you may want to know before you choose me as the person to support you on this journey...

This all begins with a once upon a time…

I’ve always been a lover of stories, both creating my own and enjoying those shared by other people.

 

A love of writing took me first into the world of corporate communications, where I spent over ten years before deciding there just wasn’t enough magic for my liking!

Instead, I chose to retrain for a job that felt more aligned with the callings of my own heart and soul, enabling me to not only bear witness to other people’s stories for a living, but also hold space for and work with those people to help them overcome their past and find the happy endings they deserved.

After qualifying first as a Counselling Therapist and later as a Life Coach I began to practice, but still felt there was something missing…

Adding a dash of the more soulful

Along the way, I’d been guiding and teaching people for some time in a more spiritual and soulful way – using the spiritual connection I’d experienced since childhood to connect clients with insights from their lost loved ones and Guides; reminding friends of their ancestral patterns and the stories of their own Soul’s reincarnations; and leading a range of workshops and courses aimed at helping people connect with something bigger both within and outside of themselves. 

Soul work was my passion. In my spare time I read, watched and studied anything and everything that connected me to that greater sense of meaning all while determined to help other people understand that these “gifts” of connection are something we all have access to.

 

The breakthrough came when I combined those two passions; bringing the safe space, firm boundaries and proven techniques of traditional talking therapies together with the sacred space, deep wisdom and powerful connections that can be found through energy healing, spiritual insight and ritual to clear energetic blockages, share individual stories, break karmic patterns and reclaim personal power in a way that felt connected, grounded and downright divine!

Building on my own passions and experience with clients and fellow soul searchers over the year, my personal approach to talking therapies – Soul-Led Therapy – was born, closely followed by Soul Support Mentoring – my way of supporting others through the challenges I’ve faced throughout my own journey so far.

Incorporating what have been called my “superpowers” for holding safe and sacred space and making connections, these two services enable me to help the amazing clients I’m fortunate to work with, while also helping me fulfill the callings of my own Soul along the way.

Behind the scenes

Dog mum, story lover, witch and geek: Away from my work these are the words you're most likely to hear me use to describe myself.

A practicing witch, third generation (at least) spirit worker and keeper of the land my ancestors have tended for generations, I live in beautiful Northumberland, North East England with my dog Kali – my favourite soul in the world, and am never happier than when the two of us are walking in the woods together.

I’m a bookworm who loves to swim and is on a permanent quest to bake the perfect dairy-free brownie.

An unashamed geek, vocal Divine Feminist and proud witch, I can often be found watching Marvel movies, lying in my back garden talking to the Moon, podcasting about my dream of creating a more balanced world, or combining all three in various weird and wonderful ways!
