‘Walk’ with me with an open heart. Something inside will surely shift.‘
As unique as we all are, we are also the same. Humans, as a species have a limited amount of emotions, but the complexity about how they are seeded in our bodies, how they are expressed, and how we deal or don’t deal with them depends on many variations. Our environment, our upbringing, even our past life existence, how we are perceived in the world, and how we perceive the world. Everything has a role to play in our evolution.
That’s why I do what I do. I love to help others unravel their patterns and behaviours. To explore themselves with a curious eye to ultimately find freedom in their minds and bodies.
I do this in many ways, but mostly by simply being with you, and enabling you to go through your unique process to self understanding. It can be painful, it can be joyful. But ultimately it’s a path worth taking more than any other in this world right now. It’s a gift to yourself.
The exploration is supported through my education, but also life experience which has been influenced strongly by some of the best mentors in the world, and my own fascination with the human psyche.
If possible, I love to walk in nature with you. To connect to something bigger than us. To allow the world to guide us. If walking isn’t an option, online can enable a space for new creation and freedom of expression too.
As Founder of Soulhub, my vision is to help others understand themselves better, because from this place, the world will already be a better world.
There are 3 key ways to work with me:
1 – Deep Dive
2 – Your regular walking therapy (Soulwalking Therapy) or
3 – Leadership/team offsite exploration
Firstly, a bit more about ME.
I’ve delved deep into my own soul. Especially over the last 10 years. It’s been quite a path, which has led me to the most scary places, and the most incredible.
The Staple Stuff
I spent 20 years in corporate life. Working for big brands from Barclays, to Lloyds to Musto and Jack Wills. I’ve led international marketing campaigns, created marketing, sales, social, partnership, sponsorship, events plans and worked with remarkably talented creatives and marketers. I always loved the creative, and getting things done. But none of the products pulled me to a place which felt like I was ‘meant to be doing’ this. I just felt like a square peg in a round hole.
The Adventurous Spirit
I’ve packed by back pack a hundred times to take me on some of the best adventures you could think of. Around the world trip, taking me to the glaciers of Patagonia, sand of the Atacama Desert, bright lights of Vegas and huts of Vietnam. I sailed from Brisbane to China on the Clipper Round the World Race. I walked the (half so far) of the Camino, and to Everest Base Camp. In January 2020, I started walking the British Isles coastline. In March, life changed, and I’ve devoted more time to Soulhub, and the creation of a beautiful partnership with my boyfriend Andrew.
The Inner Work
Along the way I’ve healed with shamans, Balinese healers, danced in the jungle, drank medicine, and looked inside. I spent 2 years training with Andrew Wallas and friends at the School of Wizards. Held the mirror up time and time again to understand why I took certain choices, and why I behaved the way I behaved. Retrained as an integrative therapist for 3 years, worked in an addiction charity for 3 years. And now I bring all that together and work with whatever you bring.
WAYS OF WORKING WITH ME
Soulwalking Therapy – Direct 1-2-1 Coaching/Therapy
Why The Soulwalker? Because as well as understanding the emotional, physical, spiritual and psychological being, I work in ways which help you understand who you are, and what you want. From the past to the present, to the future. I walk the journey with you, be it physically or emotionally.
We can have a chemistry session (60 mins) and then I ask for a minimum of 6 sessions (60 mins). Sometimes we only need 6 sessions, but for real psychodynamic work, we need time. Time to understand. Time to embody. Life is not always about quick answers. Following 6 sessions, we review and agree our plan.
Typically we connect once a week, sometimes twice. Whatever is needed, and fits in with schedules and life.
Sessions available now. This can be over the phone, skype or in person.
Cost: £510 for 6 sessions. (Aug 2020). Initial chemistry session £50.
Soulwalker Deep Dive
Drop fully into your process. We may take an hour out of our day, but our body doesn’t really relax. We don’t switch off our heads from the day to day normal existence.
Imagine being fully able to be present. To go deeper than you’ve ever done before. This option could be for those of you who:
- Feel fully burnt out
- Work ridiculously long hours/years and need a break
- Have a difficult illness (e.g. Cancer, life-threatening) and want to find peace in the challenge
- Recent break up from a relationship
- Exhaustion, depression, anxiety
- Simply want time to reflect on life, and ask yourself some big questions
- Coordinate 2 days with you (ideally 2 nights away)
- Agree the best location (normally in the SW along the coast, or Norfolk)
- Give you details of accommodation options depending on budget/time of year
- Provide a safe space and work with you – To unlock pain, resolve issues, move through a transition (marriage breakdown, loss of a child, death of a friend/family).
If you’re interested, please get in touch for costs and further details.
Leadership/team offsite exploration
Is your team struggling to function, come together, split by management decisions, by a merger, personalities are not all collaborating and working together for the best outcome. Or are you just keen to strengthen the team performance and bond at a new level?
As part of the Soulhub team I offer a 1 or 2 day offsite exploration. We take you to the coast, to walk and unravel the issues. A mixture of techniques are used, which essentially bring you back to being human. This could be meditation, games, walking itself, team exercises, psychotherapy skill techniques which help uncover what’s really going on. There’s no hiding here.
We organise everything from your accommodation, travel plans, and the offsite programme itself.
Soulwalking to Inner Peace
In 2021 I launched the Soulwalking to Inner Peace, 7 Day programme. It’s available on our Soulhub School Online Courses. It will give you an introduction to therapy, a deeper understanding for yourself, and will help set you on the path of self-realisation.
“Being in nature was also an amazing and powerful part of the process for me. The fresh air, space and abundance of nature helped me to think clearly and express myself as openly as I could. Carmen made me feel that I could talk freely and openly without judgment. She really helped me get back on track when I was feeling really low. By walking and talking, she allows you the space to let your thoughts just flow and guides you to make sense of them all. You come away from each meeting feeling more unraveled and positive.”
“I was reluctant to embark on a journey of therapy but somehow Carmen made it an easy decision. Carmen’s approach made me feel so at ease that I decided to see if talking some things through could help me. I knew there was something that was causing me to feel stuck and I wanted to move beyond it. I quickly trusted Carmen and I found myself talking about life experiences that I hadn’t shared with many people. I made a determination to set aside some precious time each week to focus on myself and Carmen helped to guide me to find the words, questions and explanations I was seeking.”
