“Spiritual Direction is, in reality, nothing more than a way of leading us to see and obey the real Director – The Holy Spirit – hidden in the depths of the soul.” – Thomas Merton
There is nothing I love more than taking the time to listen and to accompany people on their spiritual journey of following Jesus. This is not just ‘regular pastoral care’, rather, it is a way for you to explore the dynamics of your own journey along with another and to be encouraged, supported, and challenged in your walk with God.
Spiritual Accompaniment is not counselling, although it can be therapeutic. It is not judgemental or directive, but rather seeks to help you clarify for yourself what God is saying in your day to day Christian life and what he is asking you to do as a response. I can help you explore a variety of spiritual disciplines such as journalling, contemplative prayer, spiritual practises and personal mission statements as well as encourage you in your reading of scripture and other material.
Sessions would typically last an hour every 4 – 6 weeks, or at a frequency that suits you and is doable. Feel free to get in touch to find out more information and how we might work together.
£: Cost is no barrier to receiving spiritual direction, but I usually invite directees to pay something close to your own hourly rate at work. Costs of all that is offered on this website go towards funding ongoing training, professional supervision and cost of resources in providing these ministries and services.
