Peer Consultation & coacing
I love talking about all things spiritual, and over the years many persons have approached me about the role of working as a Hospital Chaplain, Pastoral Worker, Pastoral Counselor, Spiritual Caregiver, and/or utilising spirituality within other care frameworks, such as wellness, teaching, allied health, even parenting.
Many have questions about religion and its role vs. spiritual expression, theological theories, and even those with no background in formal religion/spiritual expression can desire to work in these caregiving roles and wonder where to begin and how to connect to people in the field. Those already working in spiritual care often desire to grow in professional identity & boundaries, improve coping, develop new skills, and implement somatic awareness as part of their care 'toolbox'.
So, whether wondering where to begin or discovering ways beyond CPE [clinical pastoral education] or your current care framework, I hope to hold space for all your parts, because I’ve been there. From one caregiver to another, it would be an honour to take your hand and help you grow your values, principles, and personhood. Learning to be fully present, embodied, and authentic as you support and care for others.
After many requests for advice and 'pick my brain' sessions, I chose to honour my time and energy and now offer this unique consultation and service. Formalising and charging for these sessions allow me to show up fully and thoughtfully for you and offer resources and direction where possible. This is not clinical supervision but 'coaching' and support for those who work in "non-therapeutic agreement" roles; to help you to grow, set goals and have accountability for your progress. I guarantee you'll go home with food for thought, new knowledge, and a wide-angle lens of spiritual care.
*non-therapeutic agreement = carer-initiated support vs. client-initiated support, that has a therapeutic outcome.
