"Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded.
It's a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well, can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognise our shared humanity."
- Pema Chodron
Our counselling services are anchored in a practice of what we call 'spiritual counselling' or 'spiritual accompaniment'. We offer safe and confidential boundaries within which the present moment can be revealed and an inner, self-directed healing can be unveiled. Many of our ministers offer counselling in person or via telephone, Skype or Zoom - and therefore have clients all over the world.
We allow for silence & spaciousness, trusting that it is the nature of Grace to fill spaces that have been left empty. We see vulnerability as an act of strength, courage & connection. We listen for the subtleties of what is being said and what is not being said. We cultivate a place of rest – of tenderness, where all is welcome without judgement. There is no “fixing” – simply witnessing, an invitation to deeply experience the present – moment by moment.Allowing the grace of connection to nurture both the spiritual life and human experience.
