Developing Direction

We offer formation training, opportunities for ongoing professional development, and supervision groups for spiritual directors. Spiritual Directors can also join our Community of Spiritual Directors and membership allows Spiritual Directors to have an entry in the Directory which is made available to those looking for a spiritual director.


The Centre offers supervision groups and and provides training in supervision skills from time to time.

Supervision at the Centre is:

  • Contemplative - discerning how and where God is in the work of the Director
  • Formative - growth in knowledge and insights, developing self-awareness and understanding
  • Normative - the ethics of good practice and standards
  • Restorative - space for releasing feelings and holding them
  • Af‑firmative - gentle challenge in the context of ongoing support and affirmation

We run Supervision Groups throughout the year. Each group meets 9 times per year (3 times per term) for 2 hours and currently the cost is £25 per session. Contact Catherine Chapman on .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) for more information.

The Community of Spiritual Directors

The Centre has also created a Community of Spiritual Directors consisting of those who offer the ministry of spiritual direction and who have also agreed to observe our Code of Practice. We have produced this Directory of Spiritual Directors which you can find Spiritual Directors who are members of the Community. The directory will be updated on a quarterly basis. If you would like to apply to be part of the Community of Spiritual Directors, please download the Community of Spiritual Directors Application Form below.
