I am a Christian life coach with training in NLP specialising in life transitions and personal transformation..I also offer spiritual direction and mentoring for practcing Christians.
Over the past 30 years I have worked on and off within the NHS as a qualified psychiatric and mental health nurse (RMN) with experience in clinical practice as well as project management and nurse training.
I was the founder and for 18 years the director and project leader of Hebron Trust - a Christian-based 12 Step recovery treatment centre specialising in helping people make the life transforming journey from an addiction to drugs or alcohol into the freedom of a spiritual recovery oriented life-style.
I have a Postgraduate Certificate in Pastoral Studies from the University of Birmingham (2005) and a diploma in Personal Performance Life Coaching from The Coaching Academy (2010). I am also a Certified Practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) both Classic and New Code via the NLP Academy (2010)
I normally charge £60 per session.
However, on a case-by-case basis, I am willing to negotiate a reduced rate or pro bono (free) service to individuals on a low income or who are, for whatever reason, unable to afford my normal fees.
I am a mamber of Oasis Church in Birmingham.
Christian mentoring and spiritual direction as I practice it, involves a moment by moment surrender of the will to God in a pattern of death and re-birth which is ongoing throughout the Christian’s life.
“Unless a grain of wheat falls on the ground and dies, it remains a single grain;but, if it dies, it yields a rich harvest.” John 12:24
Christian mentoring and spiritual direction can evoke old fears and apprehensions, as well as opening up a renewed vision of the ultimate meaning and purpose of your life. This requires a new kind of courage as we let go of ourselves and let our renewed identity in Christ and the creative energy of the Holy Spirit awaken and guide us along the path God has chosen for us.
My job is to stand with you and support you through a process of significant spiritual and personal change. I will ask you questions and give you honest feedback. I will help you set positive, relevant and inspiring goals that will dramatically improve your quality of life because you will be living life as you want to live it and will be doing what you really want to do.
Christian life coaching speaks directly to the chaos of the soul as it struggles with new intuitions and insights of a higher calling and a new way of being in Christ with a renewed resolve to undertake meaningful changes in life.
I see good Life Coaching skills as a componant of healthy and non-controling spiritual mentoring and direction.
As a Christian your life purpose is the energy of passion, channeled through experience and design in allegiance to your Holy Spirit empowered sense of calling. Your ‘calling’ or ‘vocation’ is an external commission from God for the sake of others which reflects your heart’s deepest yearnings and sense of the ultimate meaning and purpose of life.
The nature of your calling will change from time to time. It will undergo various transitions and transformations as it passes through the different seasons of life.
But at heart it always remains the same. It’s about facilitating the coming of God’s Kingdom, here and now, so that God’s will may be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Christian life-coaching in the context of spiritual direction and mentoring is the art of helping you grow and change from where you are today, to where you want to be tomorrow..
It is concerned with destiny discovery (or recovery) and with helping you honor and deepen not just your relationship to God through Christ but also your core values, hopes and dreams as the unique person God has created you to be. My sessions will inspire you to take specific actions to change or remedy your current situation but in the context of prayer and your deepened sense of divine calling and guidance
