The Meaning of Anam Kara

Anam Kara is a Gaelic word meaning "soul friend." It symbolizes a spiritual friendship that is not affected by time, distance, or separation. In the old Celtic tradition, the Anam Kara was someone you could share your innermost self, mind and heart. This soul friendship was an act of recognition and belonging - helping us return to the heart of our spirit.

We have chosen this name as a symbol for the 'circle of belonging' - that inner friendship which embraces nature, divinity, spirit and human world as one.

The 'journey' of holistic counseling is an intensive, sometimes challenging and always exciting process of self-discovery: a profound freedom to choose a life path and see it to fruition.
