Sonja who is originally from Germany has been in full-time vocational ministry in cross-cultural work and organizational leadership since 1995 and has lived in the US, in France and is now living in Belgium
She has been on the staff of Vineyard Brussels (Belgium) for the last 10 years, leading pastoral care and small groups. She has facilitated several silent retreats.
For over 20 years, Sonja has also offered various forms of professional counseling as well as multiple styles of healing prayer. She helped Catholic and Protestant churches to set up support groups to give people a safe and spiritually supportive place to help them get in touch with their hearts and emotions and integrate their beliefs with their feelings and experiences.
It has been hugely enriching to add Spiritual Direction to that mix.
