About me

Industry Religion
Occupation Spiritual Director, Trainer, Supervisor
Location London, United Kingdom
Introduction My passion is helping people discover the God they already know - a work still very much in progress in me. My journey so far has taken me through parish ministry and hospital chaplaincy to becoming a spiritual director and practitioner of the Spiritual Exercises in daily life. I teach spirituality and the art of spiritual direction, and I love to share what is life-giving for me through writing, teaching, giving retreats and workshops - and blogging.
