I am a Quaker Christian living in Bristol.
My own spiritual journey, so far, has been quite varied. I have worked in University, Church, commercial and voluntary settings. I lectured mathematics at the University of Bristol for seven years and followed this by becoming a chaplain to the University, after being ordained as a Baptist minister. I spent some time doing research in computer network technology which led to the formation of a IT business which I ran for three years, leaving at the end of 2002. In 2003 I joined the Quakers where my journey continues. I have recently completed a memoir, A Maze of Twisty Passages, which is available from Amazon.
It is my belief that our faith impinges on all aspects of our lives, including all the daily activities we engage in. I now engage in voluntary work, as well as working in spiritual direction. I have been involved in this work since 1991 when I attended the Llysfasi Spirituality workshop, a 16 day workshop offering the experience of both taking a retreat and then accompanying another person on retreat. Since then I have undertaken training both in counselling and in working with groups. I am a member of the South West Spiritual Directors Network and Spiritual Directors International.
