Kuhan Satkunanayagam

I'm Kuhan Satkunanayagam, Rector of St Mary’s Long Ditton in the Diocese of Guildford

I was born in Sri Lanka and came to the UK with my parents aged five years old.  I grew up in a Hindu home but became a Christian as a young teenager. 

I trained as a Chartered Counselling Psychologist with a masters and professional doctorate at the University of East London and worked for the NHS in Hammersmith and Fulham. My ministerial training was at Cranmer Hall, University of Durham. 

I am married to Christine who is a GP and we have three young children, a boy and then boy and girl twins.  As you might imagine, our home life is busy!

I have been rector of St Mary’s Long Ditton for the past three years.  St Mary’s has a strong choral tradition and could best be described as ‘middle of the road’ Anglican.

I hope that my psychology and psychotherapy background would help enhance the mentoring relationship with different perspectives and bring creative insights.  I am also interested in Ignatian spirituality and value retreats and spiritual direction from that tradition.

I could offer monthly meetings in Long Ditton and would be able to mentor BAME men/women; people living with disabilities; under 35s; people who have come from another faith background.
