Inner Child Healing Sessions

There is a small child within each of us who was, at times, blamed, shamed and wronged. A smaller version of ourselves who felt rejected and abandoned, who longed for acceptance, validation and unconditional love. 


He or She often shows up in our defensiveness, our anger and our fears. While these unhealthy behaviours are our inner child's bid for our protection, without attention and healing, many of us continue to perpetuate the shame done to us and damage our relationships.

“The cry we hear from deep in our hearts, comes from the wounded child within. Healing this inner child's pain is the key to transforming anger, sadness and fear”

Thich Nhat Hanh


Inner Child Healing Sessions are now available in my beautiful room in St Ives on the last Friday of each month. There are only 3 sessions per month, so get in quick to reserve yours


Inner Child Healing Sessions sit outside of therapy with me, so they make a beautiful and loving gift for yourself as an extension to therapy, or for someone special in your life who would benefit from a deeper healing experience.

A 1-hour Inner Child Healing Session includes a gentle deep guided meditation; an inner child creative activity and time reserved for us to therapeutically debrief your inner child experience with me.

You can book this for yourself directly through the online calendar.

If you would like to purchase this as a gift for someone - click here. They will receive their gift certificate via email and they can use their certificate to book directly. 

I look forward to sharing this essential experience with you. 



Before starting therapy with Sharlene I wasn’t convinced it would be significantly beneficial. Now I can’t see how I went this long without it. There is no judgement, no forcing of resolution, just the ability to talk openly, be listened to and reflect on what is said. Sessions are enjoyable, comfortable and safe, which is the most important thing for me.
