Mentoring

is a powerful and creative development tool for either personal or professional growth and goal achievement. It is focussed on a helpful relationship with someone who has walked a similar path on which you find yourself.

The mentoring relationship requires the essential elements of trust and respect. Investing in your growth through mentoring is an effective way of progressing in your goals.

Together we will set measurable outcomes and action review plans that evaluate the whats, hows and most importantly the whys.

MarDee provides discounted packages of 5 or 11 sessions, however she can offer a one-off session upon request.

 

 Spiritual Direction

is one person inviting another to accompany them in their pilgrimage. The pilgrim asks the director to walk alongside as they deepen their awareness.

It is not counselling, teaching, mentoring or coaching, however there may be elements of these at given times. It usually involves a conversation where the director listens carefully to the pilgrim reflecting on his/her experiences.

Spiritual Direction helps:

  • identify and trust our own experiences of the divine

  • integrate spirituality into our daily lives

  • discern and make difficult choices

  • share our hopes, struggles, and losses

  • live the essence of our spirit with integrity
