  1. 1-1 Spiritual Counselling: Working with John has been a beautiful gift. I have felt heard, seen, held and understood. He seems to naturally bring compassion, intuition, knowledge and wisdom to the counselling process. I am so happy to have found him, as I continue to explore and heal deeper layers of unresolved issues. He truly offered me a safe space. I you are lucky enough to find John, I hope you feel like I did, blessed to be able to trust his knowing and open mind and heart.

  2. 1-1 Spiritual Wellbeing, Counselling & Discovery I am delighted to be given the opportunity to write a few words of endorsement for John Doherty. I met John through my search for Spiritual Direction in early 2021 and have been working with him since. I am an accredited psychotherapist and Spiritual Director myself and wanted companioning on my journey of exploring and deepening my Spiritual life path. My immediate experience of John was that he was authentic, honest, direct and knowledgeable. John offers deep listening, Spiritual insight and gentle informed guidance. I experience Spiritual Direction as Soul-work; The primary intention of my work with John is the deepening of my relationship with myself and the movement of Spirit in my life. As a therapist, John works ethically and professionally at all times. His candid sharing of his insight to his own life experiences has the ability to deepen the work whilst staying firmly rooted in the humanistic principles of Spiritual Direction. There is a mutuality and intimacy in the relational work of spiritual direction that is not always present in psychotherapy and I experience both of these qualities emanating from John in his work as Spiritual Director.

  3. 1-1 Supervision: Unit Manager and Senior Addiction Therapist at Promis Addiction Clinics London, UK. I have been in Supervision with John since about 2011. From working with him I have gained valuable insight into the way I work and why this is so. I have always felt supported even when challenged.

    The benefits of being in supervision with John are that my awareness has deepened both about myself and the work I do with clients and this has been invaluable. I have learned to challenge myself with good impact on clients.

    When I returned to the UK in 2012 I was employed as Team Leader in an addiction and psychiatric service and started Skype supervision with John. When I left that service to take up the post as Clinical Manager at Promis London I continued Skype sessions every two weeks and these remain an important part of my support and development as a therapist.

    I cannot begin to thank John for his support whist working within a difficult team which helped me to be able to move forward in my career. John is a true professional demonstrating years of experience which he brings to my supervision.
    I have grown in confidence as a therapist as well as a person and I attribute this to my continued work with John.

  4. Director YouTube Space Berlin: John Doherty facilitated the Google Detachment Day in Dublin. His calm and very friendly nature made it easy for everyone to adapt and follow his guidance. John has a great way of visualizing complex things so we all could learn a lot by experience which is much more powerful than listening to words. I also really enjoyed his presence and energy that even convinced people who have never meditated before. The whole day with John was absolutely valuable, relaxing and made it easy to detach from daily business or thoughts. Would definitely recommend everyone to join his course and if I would not live in Germany I would attend every week.

  5. Vice-President, All Hallows College: John has presented his courses in Art of Stillness and Deep Stillness and Sacred Stillness in All Hallows College for many years both at non-accredited and at Degree level. Participants at all academic levels sing his praises. He is a dedicated and creative teacher and has made Spirituality accessible to many. I have been particularly impressed by his flexibility of approach which is allied to a depth of understanding and knowledge.
