Illuminating the path to wellbeing

The Elmfield Institute supports the holistic health of individuals and organisations through trainings, courses and events

Personal and professional development

The Elmfield Institute was founded by Jane Shaw to provide courses, retreats, events and professional trainings in holistic wellbeing. All our work is based on the foundational principles of depth psychology, trauma-informed neurobiology and creative practices.

Programmes are delivered online, self-paced on demand, and in-person at the Elmfield Estate, Gilford, Co. Down N. Ireland. Our facilitators are multidisciplined experienced educators, researchers and practitioners who have learned from their academic studies but also through conscious self exploration and lived experience.

In Their Own Words

“It was one of the most insightful and inspiring workshops I ever attended I must say. I have been feeling its power and aura all week and it is still with me.”

Elmfield to me is like Narnia; a place where our true selves can emerge

“Great speakers and such a lovely opportunity to hear such powerful accounts of other’s experiences and perspectives. A lot of us have been wounded by our professional experiences and it is so helpful to hear other’s stories. Thank you for organising such a rich event. I am looking forward to others..”
