"It has been invaluable to have the continued support of Dr. Shannon and my peers in the Inner Counselor Course. While the retreat felt like an introduction to this amazing material, the next level is really about putting it into practice, getting clarification on the process and feedback on my practice sessions thus building my confidence in using this very effective process with my clients. "

Katrina - Licensed Massage Therapist, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and Trainer

“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.”


"This process has been transformative for my clients! They gain deep insight, appreciation of themselves, and long-lasting wisdom they call upon to guide their lives in positive directions. I love being able to integrate the Inner Counselor meditation experience into my parent coaching work. They are loving it and I’m grateful to have this tool to help people heal old patterns and feel more confident and empowered to create the lives they want for themselves and their families."


“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!”


“Training with Dr. Shannon and learning this approach has been the most powerful thing I have ever done for my business, my life and my clients.”


“Dr. Shannon South is the epitome of love and joy. She is an enthusiastic and clear teacher who uplifts and inspires others to live from their joy center AND create a life that reflects the love, peace and joy we are all deserving and capable of.”
