Spiritual DirectionIf you are interested in exploring or deepening your personal faith journey and seeking a companion to travel with, then please do get in touch.

I offer Spiritual Direction from my studio in Carrickfergus, a quiet and prayerful location, surrounded by a beautiful private garden. Alternatively I can meet in St Annes Cathedral Belfast.

As an Art Psychotherapist and Jungian Sandplay Therapist, I have over 20 years experience of listening and journeying with people from all walks of life, that are seeking to discover their full potential and connect to their deeper sense of self and God within. I now integrate a spiritual dimension into my professional practice.

Over many years I have deepened my personal relationship with God through retreats and took seven weeks out to walk the Camino Frances, a spiritual pilgrimage of 500 miles. I recently travelled back to Loyola in Spain for a thirty-day silent retreat, where I experienced a deep sense of conversion and a profound realization that one needs to nurture and care for the whole of ones being. For care of the 'soul' encompasses the physical, psychological and spiritual elements of one's being.

Often the spiritual aspect of ourselves gets overlooked due to the demands of life. The Spiritual Direction I offer, is steeped in the teachings of Ignatius of Loyola and draws on the importance of discernment within our relationship to God, environment, community, and personal relationships and fundamentally in how we foster and grow the gifts and talents God has bestowed upon each of us.

To deepen our relationship with God takes a lifetime, and as part of life's journey we all encounter 'crossroads', which test and require prayerful discernment. If you are at a 'crossroads' in your life, or simply want to deepen your relationship with God, and feel you could benefit from having someone walk beside you, then I offer myself to journey with you, whilst you discern God's plan for your life and discover the gifts God has in store for you.
