What do you consider the most rewarding aspect of being an accredited supervisor The joy of developing honest, open and warm relationships with clients, whilst being patient and curious about where the inspiration or wisdom might come from in each session.

How do you put your personal ministry into practice? Faithfully following a spiritual practice every day that is carried in my awareness and gives me food for thought as I journey through a 24 hour period.

Where do you see your ministry taking you in the future? I stay open to possibilities, notice what gives me joy and trust I’ll be guided.

How do you personally interpret the words “interfaith” or “interfaith minister”? Interfaith meaning ‘between faiths and all that falls in-between’. As an Interfaith Minister, I honour and respect an individual’s beliefs or faith and endeavour to find a place beyond all right and wrong where we can meet.

Why do you believe supervision plays an essential role in developing and deepening a minister’s practices? In the joining with clients, more options, wisdom and inspiration can come than one could get to on one’s own.

What inspires you to do this work? The joy of being open-minded and exploring the unknown, not knowing where the next bit of inspiration will come from – having faith, that with patience and trust, wisdom will always come through.

What aspects of your work do you find the most inspiring, rewarding, etc.? The love, joy and sense that I am not alone in what I’m experiencing and that, as well as with my clients, there is a larger support group of supervisors that I learn from and grow with as well.

How do you bring forward innovation and creativity to your supervision practice? By letting go of control and by trusting a process to guide both myself and the client; also by having faith in non-attachment and deep listening until an idea comes and something lands.

What sets your ministry apart from others? I don’t feel that anything sets my ministry apart from others. All that matters to me is that my ministry is me – there is no separation. I have faith that, as long as this work inspires me, gives me joy, and brings meaning to my life, I want to keep doing it.
