Welcome to Shadow Work® Australia

Shadow Work® is a way of transforming parts of your character that you would like to change with compassion and understanding, allowing for a more holistic and authentic response to life’s challenges.


Healing. Balance. Energy. Focus. Strength.

Shadow Work® applies a synthesis of tools and facilitated processes developed by Cliff Barry using a four directional map of the mind as a way of identifying, navigating and processing a shadow behaviour.

Although the word “shadow” may hold negative connotations, we believe that within shadow lies powerful positive energy and inspiring potential.

We respect our shadows as our teachers and meet them in a safe space so that the journey of personal development may occur without shame and with deep respect for each individual’s narrative.

How Shadow Work can help

Embrace personal development

Unravel the depths of your unconscious mind and explore suppressed emotions and hidden traits. Shadow work sessions provide a safe and supportive environment to confront your fears, insecurities, and negative patterns. By embracing and integrating your shadow, you can unlock untapped potential and experience profound personal growth.

Transform past traumas

Unresolved emotional wounds from the past can linger in the shadows, influencing your present behavior and relationships. Engaging in shadow work sessions allows you to address these traumas head-on, fostering healing and emotional release. By acknowledging and processing these experiences, you can free yourself from their grip and create a healthier, more fulfilling life.

Enhance your self awareness

Delve into the uncharted territories of your psyche and gain invaluable insights about your authentic self. Shadow work sessions enable you to confront the aspects of yourself that you may have denied or ignored, leading to enhanced self-awareness and self-acceptance. By embracing all facets of your being, you can forge a more genuine and empowered connection with yourself and others.

Shadow Work Australia acknowledges the ancestral lands of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait island people. We acknowledge the first Australians as the traditional custodians of this continent from where we operate.

Shadow Work Australia is committed to honouring Australian aboriginal and Torres Strait islander peoples’ unique cultural and spiritual relationships to the land, waters and seas and their rich contribution to society.

We pay our respects to ancestors and elders, past and present.
