Personal consultancy

I offer both face-to-face meetings and meetings via Zoom or phone.

I am based in Seaford, if you would like a trip to the sea; or Zoom or phone can connect us without you leaving your front room.

For some, the travel is part of the experience, a sense of pilgrimage. But for many, it isn’t a possibility; and Zoom or phone serve well.

I don’t work to a particular approach: I just live the story in front of me and the transactions presently taking place, both internally and externally.

But because labels are sometimes a helpful short-hand, here are some labels:

Enneagram insight – a space to work with the insights of this ancient, yet ever modern of self-understanding. Follow this link to read more about the Enneagram. I have also written an Enneagram book called, The Enneagram: A Private Session with the World’s Greatest Psychologist, published by White Crow.

Spiritual direction – space for you to consider your ever-changing spiritual journey. It is an opportunity to consider those things which lift you; and those which depress you; a chance to consider what is dying in you; and what is emerging. And who and where is God in this story?

Witness therapy – space for your story to be told and heard in an affirming and supportive setting. In order to move on, everyone needs a witness to what has been. The answers to your future lie in your felt experience and understanding of your past.

Work supervision – a safe place to consider who you are at work and how best you can deal with people and situations in that setting. Should I be changing my job? How do I handle my manager?

Mindfulness work – moving through past entanglements and future anxieties to the clear-sightedness and fresh energy of the present; to the power of now. I have written a book of mindful meditations called One Minute Mindfulness, published by Hay House.

Making contact

‘My name is Kim Furnish. I’m a social worker in Hampshire and I began seeing Simon when I was going through a difficult time in my personal life and the work we did together helped me to stay emotionally healthy. Through our meetings I gained a stronger sense of self, which gives me the confidence and objectivity to be effective in my work. Simon is warm and compassionate, and he challenged me when I needed it. He is a joy to work with.’
