Reflective Consultation for Priests

"The unexamined life is not worth living." (Socrates)

A confidential and non-judgemental approach to reflecting on ministry experience leading to greater confidence,insight and growth.

What is Reflective Consultation for Pastoral Ministry?

Reflective Consultation is a way of learning from experience. With the assistance of a trained consultant/supervisor and a safe environment, people can focus on their ministry and explore ways to develop more effective approaches.

Through a variety of skills, knowledge and personal attributes priests undertake a wide variety of pastoral goals. These can bring great joy and a sense of achievement or they may leave a priest unsure, confused or exhausted. Reflective Consultation can be a key factor in self-care.

Reflective Consultation is an opportunity for noticing personal and collective responses to pastoral practice, bringing to the fore cultural and sociological issues that affect ministry. It also gives a person the opportunity to reflect biblically and theologically on pastoral practice.

Peter is a diocesan priest ordained for Sydney diocese in 1976. He has over 30 years experience in parish work. He has also worked in university and hospital chaplaincy and youth work.
