My name is Sheelagh, part of my mission in this life is to live my purpose and potential creatively; connecting more deeply to an authentic and alive self, in relation to a continuum of life that stretches out into the past, present and future. Moving forward with a natural curiosity one step at a time. Sowing seeds of change, inspiring and co-creating a more expansive space of co-existence.
I work with individuals and groups for personal growth and development, creating a space to explore, discover and reconnect more deeply with life.
My life and work is embedded in nature, having trained as a Horticulturist, at the National Botanic Gardens, Dublin. Nature being a constant source of inspiration and nourishment since I was a child.
I discovered Biodynamic & Integrative Psychotherapy…. A body orientated psychotherapy during my own personal growth and later went on to train as a Biodynamic & Integrative Psychotherapist at the Tracht Psychotherapy Foundation, Kinvara, Galway.
I am currently training in London with Judith Hemming and Jutta ten Herkel in The Five Realms.
A friend introduced me to Systemic Family Constellations. I participated in training in Ireland, attending workshops in America, England, Germany, Norway and Denmark, including The North American Systemic Constellation Intensive and The Connecting Fields Congress, Copenhagen. I then embarked on further training at the New England Institute of Systemic Constellations, Connecticut, America.
Discovering Systemic Family Constellations had a profound effect on me. The work changed the perspective I had of Self….. I became aware of a much larger, expansive place of connectivity, that was less about me, existing separately and isolated and more about experiencing myself as part of a complex inter-related system, or systems, such as family, community, culture, nature etc… With access to information outside the ordinary dimension of consciousness I was accustomed, to a place of awareness that shed light on areas of life that were hidden or out of view, allowing a way to connect to a much deeper and transformative place.
I’ve also hosted and/or trained with Stephen Busby, Healing Practitioner and founder of “Embodying Higher Consciousness.” Dan Booth Cohen PhD, author of “I Carry Your Heart In My Heart,” Systemic Constellations Facilitator and Trainer in conjunction with Emily Volden, LICSW, Systemic Constellations Facilitator, Trainer and co founder of “Seeing With Your Heart Immersion Programme.”
“Sheelagh embodies a quiet wisdom, humble vision and a determined voice. When Sheelagh calls me to come with her, I answer with a strong Yes. If you are fortunate to find yourself in one of her sacred spaces, you will be as grateful for the gift of discovering yourself and your unique life’s purpose.”
