The team behind The Mentor Network

Alison Cansdale

I have a deep passion for supporting those in frontline ministry and empowering people to navigate life and spiritual struggles to become all that God intended them to be. No issue is too big or too small to benefit from someone journeying with them!

I am a professionally accredited Senior Practitioner Mentor/Coach with the European Mentoring and Coaching Council, (EMCC). I am also a qualified Therapeutic Coach (FTCT) and a qualified Pastoral Supervisor. I lecture in Christian mentoring and coaching at theological colleges. My professional background is as a Speech and Language Therapist and I have an MA in Christian Mentoring (Missiology). My breadth of studying has roots in equipping myself as well as I can to help others.
