    Accompanying others on their spiritual journey is a great joy to me. I love to consider the most fruitful way for each individual to find the deepest satisfaction in their prayer time; be this with stillness and silence or music, the Bible, poetry or creative media. I accompany people through the Ignatian Spiritual Exercises. I assist on weeks of Accompanied Prayer and am happy to accompany clergy and LGBT people. I work on the basis of donations from my home in Highgate.

  10. Olive Cope (C of E)

    • London - North East
    I am a retired priest. Often my directees are people who are anticipating a BAO or ordination. However I'd gladly work with the unchurched (not with evangelism in mind!). Men or women and across denominations. I have very impoverished eyesight. I do not give the Ignatian Spiritual Exercises. I particularly enjoy gardening, travel and choral music. I have training and experience in bereavement work and counselling. I do not charge for SD but accept an occasional donation if the directee desires it - used occasionally for training but usually for charity work.
