About Helen Vester

An experienced Professional Supervisor and CPE (Clinical Pastoral Education) Educator, with a background as a Hospital Pastoral Practitioner, Prison Chaplain and High School Teacher. I offer supervision to people  in pastoral/spiritual care, ministry and other professional caring roles, students of pastoral care/chaplaincy and students of supervision, through my private practice based in the Perth suburb of Attadale. I also offer education for beginning and experienced pastoral/spiritual carers, including the 400 hour program Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) and facilitate team building and other group experiences. 

As a professional supervisor and educator, I take to heart the Quaker author, Parker Palmer's words from his book A Hidden Wholeness, 'When you speak to me about your deepest questions, you do not want to be fixed or saved; you want to be seen and heard.'

Outside of Work

A Catholic lay person, with a particular interest in Ignition spirituality and contemplative forms of prayer, I live in Perth with my husband of 30 years. Our three children, now all in their 20's live nearby.

One of our children has ADHD and autism. While she works full-time and lives independently, as a mother I know the challenges of having a child who does not fit societal norms.
I grew up in New Zealand and lived in the UK and The Netherlands before emigrating to Australia with my Dutch husband. I have lived experience of migration, language and cultural difference.
I love hiking and travelling including seeing WA in our camper.
