Ms Anita Yap
Anita is a spiritual director formed in the Ignatian tradition. She received her training with the Lanteri Centre for Ignatian Spirituality in Denver, USA and Kardia Formation based in Australia. While the Ignatian spirituality has been providing guide-posts for Anita’s growth in her personal friendship with Jesus, she also draws much inspiration and learning from the best of the Carmelite and Franciscan spirituality. Her calling towards spiritual direction is a culmination of many grace-filled years of being spiritually fed and nurtured by God’s loving presence in silent retreats and having been accompanied by spiritual directors who supported her discernment and journey of surrender to God’s plan for her life. Anita has been coaching leaders, facilitating leadership and organisational development since 2005 when she transited out of full-time employment to running her own consultancy. She facilitates highly engaging workshops on leadership, facilitation skills, coaching & mentoring, and generative conversations. Anita is currently an Associate Facilitator with the Civil Service College, Social Services Institute and Greenleaf Centre for Servant Leadership (Asia). She is a certified professional facilitator & coach. She is also a certified facilitator for the Lead Like Jesus encounters developed by Ken Blanchard. She is married with 4 children.
