My name is Christine Blackie. As an independent Career Counsellor, I help clergy and individuals employed in church-related settings to make positive changes to their
working lives.

If you are considering the future direction of your career or ministry, Career Counselling can help you to step back, reflect upon and navigate your next steps.

Whatever your role – ordained minister, deacon, SSM, reader, lay worker or a Church leader responsible for the development of clergy, read on to find out more about how Career
Counselling works in practice.
