I offer Spiritual Direction online as well as in person
Presently accepting clients
I have been a follower of Christ from my teenage years. Although I have largely attended Baptist Churches I am very non-denominational and often wonder what Jesus would think of the plethora of denominations in evidence today.
I have been involved in Scripture Union in numerous ways and have directed a number of ISCF camps. I have been on the Public Questions Committee of the NZ Baptist Union and see my Christian belief is important in all aspects of life. I see the importance of bible study and prayer in small groups. I strive to be an effective steward of God’s earth and so the physical environment is very important to me.
I embrace doubt and believe only God/Christ/the Holy Spirit has all the answers.
Note at present I am training to be a Clinical Supervisor for people working in the education, health and social service areas.
Approach to spiritual direction
I am not hierarchical and see myself as an experienced spiritual companion who would accompany you on your spiritual growth journey. I approach it with a non-judgmental strength based focus.
My background has been in educational leadership and the dimension I find easiest to work with is the mind rather than the heart. However, connection with the heart is an aspect of my growth. I am well read and I am happy to work across cultures and across ages. My secondary school background means that I am very keen to connect with young people.
I wished I had a spiritual director 20 years earlier. God at the centre, humour and family are very important to me. I have personally been encouraged and strengthened holistically by spiritual direction both in my personal life and in my work.
