My style of spiritual direction is influenced by my practice of meditation in the Christian tradition.
I am a trustee and Auckland regional coordinator of the New Zealand Community for Christian Meditation and in 2020 I was appointed to the International Guiding Board of the World Community for Christian Meditation.
I am a novice oblate and follow the Benedictine tradition of contemplative prayer. Since 2013, I have worked as the Spiritual Care Coordinator at Harbour Hospice, Red Beach.
Prior to that I had a long career in marketing and communications working in corporates and start-up companies. I am an active member of the Hibiscus Coast Catholic community.
Approach to spiritual direction
I like the metaphor of being a companion on the journey. Sometimes a new companion can bring a fresh perspective to the path ahead. Perhaps provide an alternative route or a way out of what may feel like a dry and spirit-less desert.
My approach is contemplative; presence and listening lie at the heart of my work. For this reason, I am comfortable working with people from the broad sweep of Christian faiths. And because of my hospice work, I have an affinity with people who might describe themselves as unchurched seekers or refugees from dogmatism.
