Monthly Reflections

  • “What is Christian Coaching…exactly?”

    May 2017

    I’m often asked this question. Twice this week in fact! The last time from Margaret Austin who kindly stopped by my table for a friendly chat as I was having a ‘cuppa’ in the church café last week.  When YOU think of the word ‘coaching’ or ‘coach’ what springs to mind? A sport’s coach, a […]

  • Sympathy for Jonah?

    March 2017

    Every now and again I read a book that makes me think out loud (actually there are quite a few…) and without doubt, this is one of them! Sympathy for Jonah is written by David Benjamin Blower.  By digging deep into the familiar story of Jonah, we are reminded in compelling, disturbing and inspiring ways, […]

    Three Streams, One River

    February 2017

    So close to the beginning of a new year I want to share the following key themes that are increasingly important to me.  For a variety of reasons they have always deeply resonated with my life, work and ministry, perhaps more so in this season than ever before, which is why I’m taking the time […]

  • Seize the Day!

    January 2017

    Here we are again… at the turning point of a new year.  We find ourselves looking both ways… back over the past year, and ahead to the future before us.  The prophet Isaiah draws our attention and calls us to action, at this significant moment. “Forget about what’s happened; don’t keep going over old history.  […]

    Are you paying attention?

    December 2016

    Noooooooooooo…oh! What? Really?! Him? You couldn’t predict the result, the final outcome. (No. I’m not referring to the US Presidential election!) But it’s all there, foretold in scripture, The Arrival, the long anticipated Coming. Who would have thought… that God would choose the least likeliest of people, an ordinary teenager, virgin, unmarried, to give birth […]

  • Leading Lights

    November 2016

    Picture the scene…  a 76 year old Sikh grandmother lying in a hospital bed.   She doesn’t speak English and is illiterate.   Through interpretation and translation, she is told that she has to have an emergency operation for a quadruple bypass, or she will die…   Interestingly, she is peaceful and calm when she […]

    Ten Myths About Domestic Abuse You Didn’t Know You Believed: Part 2

    October 2016

    Abuse is the choice of a person, usually a man statistically (but not exclusively), to undermine the personhood of his partner, girlfriend, wife.[1]  This may include putting her down and devaluing her, isolating and controlling her, making her feel she is going mad, scaring and intimidating her, using her children against her, lying to her […]

What you’re saying

  • I feel much more ambitious for myself in terms of what I can achieve both on a personal and professional level. I am now much more aware of my own future and personal vision.

    7 Deadly Sins of Women in Leadership

  • The shared days have definitely played a part in the increased sense of emotional health and well-being I have experienced over the last 18 months – which have been a very significant time for me.

    7 Deadly Sins of Women in Leadership

  • I had an awesome day. Thanks for your time, effort and organisation

    General Testimonial

  • This event was a great intro for the new attendees and a blessing to all!

    General Testimonial

  • I really appreciated the way in which the equality of men and women together has been emphasised, this is lacking in most women based stuff I’ve looked at or been a part of. Maybe men would benefit from some of the teaching too?

    7 Deadly Sins of Women in Leadership

  • Coaching provided a non-judgemental space for me to reflect on our Church vision and strategic objectives. It also had a hugely positive impact on the way I lead and relate to others.

    Senior Minister, Church

    Coaching

  • I want to say a huge thank you for the content of your talks at the Conference, which was so instructive and also the way that you delivered it.  You really blessed and encouraged us.

    Co-ordinator for church minister’s conference

    General Testimonial

  • Every time we meet I come away challenged and encouraged.

    Church leadership team member

    General Testimonial

  • My only regret is that I did not meet you twenty years ago… how different my early ministry could have been. Your wisdom, integrity and above all character, are a rare gift to us all.

    Local church pastor

    General Testimonial

  • I just wanted to say how much I appreciated your ministry at the recent ministers’ conference… a number of the things you said really helped to crystallise some things I believe God has been saying to me.

    Regional leaders’ conference co-ordinator

    General Testimonial

  • So refreshing to have input from different leadership styles/sectors/age ranges

    General Testimonial

  • Great conference, very diverse

    General Testimonial

  • Thank you it has been really excellent including lovely food!

    General Testimonial

  • Thank you so much… this experience has been life changing.

    7 Deadly Sins of Women in Leadership

  • The most important thing for me has been a sense of sisterhood and shared journey. It has been an extremely valuable and significant experience for me and I will never, from now on, forget how powerful the love of other women is.

    7 Deadly Sins of Women in Leadership

  • It has been great to have time away to really think about those issues which women struggle with regarding leadership – clearly exposed, with helpful ways to deal with them.

    7 Deadly Sins of Women in Leadership

  • You are a voice of wisdom for this generation and certainly to me, you have not only given advice but you have also given me the tools.

    Businessman and Church Elder

    General Testimonial

  • I am now better, stronger, empowered and focused – holistic transformation!!  Being mentored has been life changing…

    Head of Department, Public

    Mentoring

  • Mutuality and emphasising relational dimensions are one of the most important things I feel I offer as a women leader, seeing this being modelled (by the presenters) has been a vital part of the course for me.

    7 Deadly Sins of Women in Leadership

  • I want to thank you especially for your honesty, your vulnerability and your integrity in all you shared…  I consider it an honour and privilege to have had the opportunity to meet and talk with you, and to sit under your ministry.
