Spiritual Counselling

Spiritual Counselling offers support for individuals who are wanting to look more deeply at their lives from a spiritual perspective…

It takes a holistic approach, including practical, mental and emotional issues as part of our spiritual journey. As well as skilled listening and reflection, it can include guided meditation, simple ceremony and non denominational guidance on spiritual practice.

guided meditation, simple ritual and non denominational guidance on spiritual practice…
A spiritual counsellor listens deeply to the whole of your being, provides a safe sanctuary in which to unpack and lay down your burdens and helps you to see meaning in all your experience, both happiness and suffering. Your unique life, including its blessings and challenges, is a spiritual journey that can awaken you to a fuller, wiser and more loving way of being. Spiritual counselling can provide the space and the tools to help you heal yourself and discover the deeper dimensions of life.

Spiritual Counselling is available through Living Spirit with Rev. Sam Wernham.

She has an MA in Mindfulness based Psychotherapeutic Practice from the Karuna Institute and Middlesex University, London.
