Welcome dear Space Holder

Can you imagine a world in which the depth of our capacity to hold space for ourselves and others means that we feel safe to express ourselves truly, and co-contribute to the world we long for?

To Hold Space is not the absence of doing. 

But the PRESENCE of being.

Is there are greater gift to ourselves than deepening our capacity as space holders?

As a wellbeing practitioner, parent, care-giver, community organiser, creative, visionary or circle holder, you are a Space Holder.  

You hold space for your art, your work, your dreams, your desires, your grief and your gratitude.

Holding space is an essential art, craft and skill to practice compassion, exercise courage and cultivate community. 

With practice and willingness we can deepen our art, develop our craft and hone our skill. 

If you hold space for others, deepening your capacity to hold space for yourself will greatly enhance your capacity to hold safer and inclusive spaces for connection and change.

To hold space is to relinquish our programming that to be useful is to provide solutions, advice or remedies.

Holding space invites us to be with the discomfort of what we are experiencing and expand through it, rather than contracting into it.

Holding space allows us to tend to the fullness of our emotions, needs, longings, outrage, desires, disappointments, anger, grief and fears.

Meet Mitlé

Through sitting in Circle I have witnessed the significant disconnection from self, body and story that women have gone through. 

Holding Space for ourselves is essential to our sense of connection and belonging.

I have been teaching, guiding and supporting women to deepen their capacity as space holders through circles, retreats and courses since 2016.

I believe in the power of connection, community and humour to provide a path of integrity back to ourselves, and authentic relationship with the more than human world. 

Through our journey together, I draw on my former professional experience as a litigation and compliance lawyer, my training and working experience as a Inspired EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) Practitioner, Intuitive Guide, Culinary Nutrition Expert, Circle Holder teacher, and my own journey through PTSD, depression and anxiety, alongside my daily dialogue with chronic pain and navigating peri-menopause, together with my ongoing studies in Celtic myth, tradition and spirituality, stories and storytelling, and my personal nature based practices, to support you on your space holding journey.

As a recovering lawyer now learning the old ways, I am seeking ways to fracture the current systems that uphold oppression and am committed to increasing my capacity to hold diverse, inclusive and safer spaces for those marginalised by those systems.

If you would like to connect with me before joining PRESENCE, please reach out.


What Others Have Shared

Reflections from past participants

Beauty in Connection

Atifa Balding

Mitlé weaves her knowledge with a grounded spirituality. As a space holder myself it’s nice to be held by someone that I deeply trust. Mitlé's sense of humour and expansive sharing really is incredible and generous. She genuinely cares! Her authentic nurturing is so evident with the feedback received from the other members. I can see and feel that others feel so supported in her company. I have learnt that there is beauty in connection and it was very special to be part of a supported circle.

Thoroughly Enjoyed

Robyn Kyberd

Mitlé is an incredible teacher, guide and circle holder. I highly recommend her #PRESENCE training for anyone learning to hold space for themselves, clients, family or friends. I thoroughly enjoyed this digital immersion into self-awareness and space-holding.

Space, Presence & Expansion

Sobia Zafar

PRESENCE has been my absolute favorite. I took away so much space, presence and expansion, all summed up by compassion in each moment of being alive.

Catalyst to My Own Awakening

Lorna Hay

It’s been a few years since I enrolled in PRESENCE and it is one that will always be very sentimental to me. Through Mitle I was opened up to a new way of being and thinking which was in turn the catalyst to my own awakening. I still talk about the elements I learnt and recommend to anyone wanting to learn about space holding and a new way to look upon life. I know of no other better person and space to learn this from.

Truly Pivotal & Transformational

Sophie French

I found PRESENCE to be a truly pivotal, supportive course and welcoming sanctuary to fully immerse in the art of holding space I love how interactive it was, I felt seen and heard. The amazing Mitle is hugely encouraging and remains an inspiration for myself and my circles. Mitle is SO generous in the concepts she shares inside PRESENCE. I especially loved Mitle’s guided journeys, which I found to really activate my intuition.PRESENCE provided incredible frameworks for self awareness I still apply to my life and work now. Thank you Mitle for this magical mix of circles, classes and resources - it was transformational.
