  10. Catherine Cowell (Christian)

    • England, Staffordshire
    • Skype, Zoom
    It would be my greatest joy to accompany you on your spiritual journey. Especially if you have a yearning to go deeper but can’t imagine how on earth that could happen amidst the demands and the busyness and the unpredictability of your every day life. Or if your faith doesn’t feel like it fits in the way that it used to and you’re wondering how to continue your journey. As the single adoptive mother of two teenage boys with special needs, I know what it is to discover that God works in and through our doubts and chaos. My spiritual home is in Christianity and I am also delighted to learn from other traditions and to accompany people of all faiths and none. I am also a life coach and bring those skills too to my work of accompaniment. I am willing to assist on weeks of accompanied or guided prayer. Fees: Donations are welcome but not obligatory.
