Meet the Team
Wesley House has been at the forefront of developments in pastoral and reflective supervision in the UK and across the world since 2004. Today we offer training courses, expert supervision, workshops and consultancy services to churches and other organisations. We are engaged in research, publication and the supervision of academic research.
Our Principal, The Revd Dr Jane Leach, was the founding chair of the Association of Pastoral Supervision and Education. With Michael Paterson she co-authored the best-selling core text: Pastoral Supervision: A Handbook and in 2020 her latest book on supervision will be published: A Charge to Keep: reflective supervision and the renewal of Christian leadership. Jane currently serves as the Connexional Director of Supervision for the Methodist Church in Britain and offers consultancy services to other churches and organisations about introducing reflective supervision as a structured part of their life. Jane is an APSE accredited senior supervisor and trainer. She also supervises academic research in this area.
The Revd Bill Mullally is a Methodist minister, formerly the President of the Methodist Church in Ireland.

Dr Sue Price is the Director of Pastoral Outreach at the Margaret Beaufort Institute of Theology. She worked for 30 years in Healthcare as an Occupational Therapist where clinical supervision was embedded into practice. Sue attended the inaugural meeting of APSE in Cambridge, realising that her healthcare supervision practice could be used within ministerial settings.

Sue is now getting involved with the training programmes offered by Wesley House.
The Revd Bob Whorton offers reflective supervision either face to face or online. His first substantial training in supervision was with the London Centre for Psychodrama where he fell in love with creative methods of reflection. He is a senior accredited supervisor and educator with APSE, and is a spiritual director. Bob has worked as a lead trainer with the Methodist Church’s ambitious Responsible Grace training programme in pastoral supervision. After many years as a circuit minister he worked as a mental health chaplain and hospice chaplain. Between 2017 and 2022 he lived in rural France where he and his wife Sue set up a small centre for reflection and the arts. Living in Cambridgeshire, he is now semi-retired.
