Depth Insight Sanctuary is a therapeutic counselling and coaching consultancy. I'm a personal growth coach, with diplomas in transpersonal coaching and holistic therapy. I'm also a spiritual counsellor in training and a student member of the British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists, with developing competencies in online therapy and outdoor eco-psychology. I am a professional member of the Transpersonal Coaches & Therapists Network, and fascinated by my field of research in embodied mindfulness and trauma healing. I work in private practice and with agencies based in Somerset, UK & Online. I love listening to people and my practice is gender, sex and relationship diverse. My name is Kesley Cage.
the word 'heal' means 'to become whole'
Many people today are feeling ‘othered', misunderstood or affected by harm on our planet. Many of us are survivors and outsiders, have yet to notice the gift and call within our experiences, or are in need of some support to encounter existential issues, life struggles or mental health problems.
I assist people to re-emerge from loss, dark nights of the soul, shame, low mood, loneliness and lingering distress. Whether the imperative is to recover a sense of empowerment after choices made in the past, honour pain and let go, or make new beginnings; my practice is to support my clients to walk their paths and regain a sense of wholeness that may have seemed broken, unseen or tarnished before now.
I’m experienced in working with young people, refugees, gender, sex, orientation and relationship diverse folx, and people of varying cultures, faiths, philosophies and traditions. I can accompany you if you are healing yourself and enquiring about your identity or purpose, and ways of relationship and engagement with the world.
Self-love, not self-fixing
You may be expecting someone to try to fix you. I'm not going to do that.
No one is broken.
By relating compassionately with all aspects of you present in the here-and-now, we develop the person-centred conditions, evidenced to be effective for human thriving and healing trauma.
I welcome all parts of you, without judgement, so you can dare to be yourself, wholeheartedly.
Feelings, Polarities, Possibilities and You
I invite you to land softly in your body here and now;
You can observe your feelings if you choose to.
Felt-sensations are like a compass to navigate your way in life.
You may experience that some pleasure liberates you, and some pleasure binds you.
You may choose to savour, cling on or let go.
You may even notice that some pain signals the need for rest, and some pain calls for change or endurance.
You can invest yourself more, relax, or fight if you want to.
You are not your feelings. Yet how you respond to and direct the energy of life moving through you, is what creates your destiny.
Just as you are. You can change if you want to. No pressure though.
Just be you. Who you are is a miracle. You've loads of potential.
I offer resources and support for psychological and spiritual well-being.
