kind words from professionals who've attended my trainings
“Since learning this Spiritual Psychology Process, I have been able to use it with a number of clients with complex trauma and childhood abuse. One client struggling with debilitating panic disorder especially benefited. She was able to trust the process since we have an established therapeutic rapport from several months of work together. She said she felt a strong sense of peace afterwards - I had never seen her like that. She was laughing, more fully in her personality and body, and truly calm. I hadn't even seen her sit in her seat comfortably until after this! It was amazing!”        

And on how this work integrates with other therapies:  

“I especially love how this process seamlessly supports the other creative and holistic approaches I use to help clients move towards integration and healing.” 
rachel, bodyworker, licensed counselor & art therapist
“My jaw has dropped hearing the spiritual advice that comes from the hearts of young teenagers whom I work with and I feel great joy when I help adults learn how to trust themselves to let go into the freedom of healing. The Inner Counselor Process™ heals deeply as we connect to our inner wisdom.”   
Vicky, dynamic spiritual therapist
“This is why I became a therapist-to help people connect with their Truest Self.”   

This approach not only does what Dona said, but it gives the serious practitioner a road map to the window of their clients’ Soul and what could be more juicy and exciting than that!

A Transformational Approach Based on the 
Inner Counselor Technique™
This two-day training features advanced spiritual psychology skills, based on concepts from the Inner Counselor Technique™  to help clients heal from traumatic experiences. 

It is a transformational approach, designed to move clients beyond their stories to experience a greater sense of joy and wholeness through a unique process of personality integration. Inner Counselor Techniques™ expand on the work of psychologists such as Abraham Maslow, Carl Gustav Jung, and William James. The techniques target both spiritual and psychological dimensions to assist clients in changing their automatic response patterns. As a clinician, this workshop will provide you with spiritual and Soul tools to help your clients get to the root of their suffering, become more self-actualized and optimize their sense of joy in everyday life.  

The Inner Counselor System has evolved over the last 30 years to become a highly effective approach for self-directed, on-going personal and spiritual healing and growth.  

The Inner Counselor has three essential components: 

1) A clear conceptual framework, 

2) A guided Self-Awareness Process, and  

3) A method that integrates these two components to create powerful and lasting transformations in body, mind, emotions, and spirit.  

Inner Counselor is a progressive, whole systems approach to self-healing and integration that includes a clearly outlined Integration Chart and a 15-step guided Self-awareness Process (ICPTM). The brief, dynamic ICPTM may be used by professionals as a symptoms-oriented clinical intervention or by individuals seeking ongoing personal and spiritual growth. The ICPTM quickly and effectively resolves trauma as well as resolving more common, less traumatic dysfunctional coping patterns.  

The core of this system is a connection with one’s “Inner Wisdom.” This connection supports the perennial spiritual philosophy that the true “healer” lies within each of us.
Meet dr. shannon south
Shannon D. South, LPC, Th.D., is an award winning therapist, an amazon best-selling author, a professional speaker, and an expert in the field of spirituality and healing trauma for over 20 years. She is also a mother, writer and avid meditator, having completed her doctorate studying meditation and its effects on depression, anxiety, dopamine and other neurotransmitters. 

Dr. South grew up in the mountains of NC. Her passions are speaking, writing and helping people “heal the split” associated with trauma so that wholeness and joy can occur naturally. Dr. South knows how to assist people in giving themselves these valuable life-changing gifts and she is now sharing life-giving tools with other clinicians through professional workshops.  

When there is pain in our lives, we often develop or experience “unsupportive”, or “joy-busting” coping skills and patterns. Our system attempts to “handle these events, beliefs or experiences the best way it knows how. These less healthy ways of coping hold us together until we can develop new ways of being with ourselves, our pain and others. Dr. South utilizes EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), dream work and a transpersonal psychology process called “the Inner Counselor.”  

In 1994, during graduate school, Shannon had a spiritual experience during meditation that healed her debilitating anxiety and panic disorder. Since this transformative experience, Shannon’s focus changed from one of traditional psychotherapy to a holistic, transpersonal nature. She began intense studies in meditation, mind-body-spirit healing and MBSR (mindfulness based stress reduction) with Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD. Shannon obtained her doctorate in theology/transpersonal psychology studying with Dr. Norman Shealy and Dr. Carolyn Myss.
