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.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.
