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
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.
