Born in Birmingham but lived much of my life on Gloucester/Hereford border. On leaving school I trained as a psychiatric nurse and then as nurse tutor. I went on to study various psychologies and therapeutic practices which led me into specialising in change leadership in many different contexts.
I trained as a Methodist minister at Wesley College, Bristol and was ordained in 2006 in Edinburgh. I have a great love of desert and celtic spirituality which were the focus of my MA research. I now teach Christian meditation in classes and in retreat settings.
