Anam Cara Ministries
"In everyone's life, there is a great need for
an anam cara, a soul friend.
In this love you are understood as you are
without mask or pretension...
Love allows understanding to dawn...
where you are understood,
you are at home."
Anam Cara comes from the Celtic and literally translates as Soul Friend. It has its roots in the ancient tradition of being accompanied on the journey of life with a "Friend of the Soul". The Soul Friend holds space for the Seeker and gently explores with the Seeker what God - however the Seeker has encountered God - might be speaking into his/her life.
In Anam Cara Ministries, this accompaniment is offered as Soul Tending.
Soul Tending is a safe space where you and I can explore what God, however you encounter the Divine, is speaking into your life as you experience it in your body, mind, and spirit. The aim of Soul Tending is to nurture and bring into unity your relationship with God, with others and with yourself.
Soul Tending is not, nor is it meant to replace counselling, psychotherapy or life/career coaching. It is also not a substitute, if you are Catholic, for the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
My practice interweaves spiritual direction with elements of psychological process and somatic awareness. Each session may focus on one or more of these aspects, depending on what will facilitate greater awareness, understanding and integration of body, mind and spirit for you.

Having done inner work for many years and having worked with different spiritual directors and therapists, I truly appreciate Edwina who could go the depth with me! She is very gentle and empathetic and would always invite me to explore deeper within with curiosity, not judgement. I appreciate her wisdom and intuitiveness very much- she is always "spot on" in teasing out my issues when I present her an entangled ball of yarn! I got to unravel many deep-seated beliefs and each session is very empowering and liberating!
She is objective while being empathetic, is kind with her words while still being sufficiently firm to pull me back in line when I am sidestepping issues that need to be faced and is most of all always authentic in her disposition.
It has been a gift to be accompanied by Edwina on the journey. Her empathy, non-judgment and ability to listen deeply have comforted and gently challenged me in the best ways possible through different seasons of life. As an embodiment of what it means to be a vessel of the Lord, she has guided me to see God’s goodness and faithfulness anew!
Edwina has been guiding, companioning and encouraging spiritual seekers for over 25 years.
She has a Masters of Arts (Theological Studies) from Broken Bay Institute, Australia, a Masters of Social Science (Counseling) from Edith Cowan University, Australia, and is a certified Labyrinth Facilitator from Veriditas. Edwina also trained in retreat giving and spiritual direction at St Beuno’s Jesuit Spirituality Centre, Wales.
Edwina is the founder of Anam Cara Ministries and a sought-after soul guide in Singapore. She is known for her unique, interdisciplinary, whole-person approach to soul tending which helps people of different ages and backgrounds to enter the holy ground within and encounter God-Beyond-All-Names.
