I was born and breed Catholic and joined the Sisters of Mercy in my forties having worked in administration, finance and business for 28 years. I have a diploma in Counselling (member of NZAC) and did my Spiritual Direction training with Spiritual Growth Ministries in 2014-2015.
My life has been enriched through over17 years involved in pastoral and spiritual care in residential aged care, walking alongside people with different faith traditions and cultures. I have had amazing Spiritual Directors accompany me on the journey of my life – I now am privileged to do the same for others.
I believe life is a gift given by God and that “Our lives are not problems to be solved but journeys to be taken.”― Henri J. M. Nouwen, Spiritual Direction
Approach to spiritual direction
As a Spiritual Director, I am a soul friend to others. I value accompanying others as they search to deepen their relationship with the divine and grow in their own personal spiritual journey.
I have a personal interest in the importance of dreams and the way God speaks to us in our spiritual life way. have a special interest in how loss and grief can influence our spirituality. I am also interesed in different personalities and how these can complement and deepen relationships as we come to understand ourselves as the unique person God created and grow in compassion and forgiveness.
I believe the interconnectedness of body, mind, spirit and the cosmos add a richness and beauty to each person. For me, “the real Director is the Holy Spirit hidden in the depths of our soul.” Thomas Merton.
