Steve Roberts

Steve has been married to Trish for 37 years. They have three adult children, a wonderful daughter-in-law and two grandchildren. He was a High School Maths teacher for 15 years, then did theological study for 2 years at SMBC and 3 years at Moore College. He has served in Anglican churches in north-west Sydney, Bowral and the Illawarra for the past 25 years. He recently completed a Diploma of Counselling from the Australian Institute of Family Counselling, and is now working together with Trish as a counsellor, focusing on supporting couples, but also working with men, especially in the area of grief and mental health. Steve enjoys kayaking, ocean body-surfing and walking along Lake Illawarra. He also enjoys the challenge of doing Sudoku puzzles and Cryptic Crosswords. He has done the Peacemaking, Conflict Coaching and Mediation training courses with PeaceWise and has led Everyday Peacemaking courses for churches and married couples. He has also enjoyed the opportunity to support men through online conflict coaching. He has found the PeaceWise material really helpful in understanding himself better and in enabling him to pastor, counsel and guide people.
