A Bespoke Service
Our mission is to provide you with what you want for where you are in your journey:
- The safety of professional expertise with extensive prayer ministry experience.
- Coaching; counselling.
- Marriage Enrichment.
- Development; a way forward.
- A rest; a time of refreshing; a retreat.
- Wisdom, insight, listening ears, caring hearts.
We can provide accommodation, which you can read more about in our Rivendell section.
We work with singles, couples, groups, teams, leaders, missionaries and families.
We have several elements for you to tailor the time to where you are in your journey now, where you want to be next. Whether your walk with God has not yet begun, ranges from Traditional to Charismatic, or you are not interested in Christianity, we are here to help you progress.
An important value to Helen & Steve is their professional eclectic training where they fit the model to the client and not vice versa. However Helen is trained in Gestalt, Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Psycho-Dynamic Counselling and is happy to use any of those models if the client prefers.
Our passion is to help you to deepen in the love your Father-God feels for you and to discover and walk into the uniqueness of your God-given design and purpose. If you find something in the way, we will help in its removal, and to help you be equipped to walk into the fullness of life that God has for you.
Bespoke is individually tailored to meet your requirements and needs. Therefore the cost of time with us will vary with each individual, or couple.
Our desire is that all those who want to receive this ministry will be able to access it, because we believe this is what we have been called by God to do and we love seeing Him transform people’s lives. We prefer to see our clients not so much paying for our time but more supporting us in our ministry. [See Testimonials for some examples]. However, like everyone else we do have to pay our bills, so realism is needed about our costs. It may help your thinking about the level of support you wish to give for your time with us to know that the ordinary rate for professionals of our experience would be £55. Whre clients see both of us we reduce the professional rate from £110ph to £80ph. That may be possible for you and your faith circle. However, we do not want finance to be a barrier. The Bespoke Board does allow us a reduction where finance would be a barrier, for example for those on low incomes and for Registered Charities. Discretionary Assistance with payment may be possible by agreement of the Assistance Committee.

1. Name of Individual, or of the Organisation and of its main contact person

Bespoke seeks to serve
- those who are in full-time Christian service,
- those in low remunerative positions,
- youth, many of whom are NIETs [not in education or training], and
- to enable Steve & Helen to minister to non-churched youth via Unlimited church.
To help you to help us serve these, we have set up an account with Stewardship, who administer funds for those in full-time ministry. They are able to “gift aid” donations which means your gift is worth an extra 20%. Please support through Stewardship by following this link.
On behalf of those who otherwise would struggle unaided, Thank You!
