Psychotherapist Theo Dijkman Counselling and psychotherapy "The labyrinth, in its strange and uncanny way, offers a sacred and stable space to focus attention and listen to the longing of the soul."

Lauren Artres




Labyrinths are ancient patterns found in many cultures around the world. The labyrinth design has been found on pottery, floor motifs and in the landscape and can be traced as far back as 5000 years. They have often been found in places of pilgrimage and spiritual importance.

They are currently used as a way to quieten the mind and recover balance in life. The labyrinth is a tool that encourages inner reflection, stress reduction and discovering insight and inspiration. Walking the labyrinth can integrate the body with the mind and spirit; enhancing an inner sense of direction.

I regularly offer facilitated labyrinth walks which include guided meditation and creativity to explore our relationship with our whole being. These labyrinth events offer the possibility for participants to be in their own process while still feeling interconnected with others on the labyrinth. It allows for each to be their own expert.

Labyrinth walks can also be used for team building and stress reduction within organisations. The organisational world demands more and more immediate responses from people in rapidly changing environments which can easily lead to increasing levels of stress. The labyrinth offers a reflective and mindfulness tool that is not dependant on extensive training and yet offers simple and deep insights into what can support individuals in such demanding environments.
