Millions of people are suffering with Depression, Fear and Anxiety. 2013 studies even reflect roles in ministry as having one of the top 3 suicide rates of any profession.
Many around the world are struggling in constant emotional pain desperately seeking peace; properly placed the Word of GOD provides this freedom.
Who Needs Counseling?
Everyone needs counseling at some time in their lives.
There are specific situations where counseling is appropriate:
When you face major decisions such as marriage, career choice, and spiritual direction.
When you face crisis issues such as divorce, job loss, major or long-term illness, financial loss, the death of someone near, and physical, mental, emotional, verbal, and sexual abuse.
When you face unresolved conflicts such as in family relations, employer-employee relations, other social relations, church relations, and civil relations.
When you face addictions such as substance abuse (drug, alcohol, nicotine, and food), sexual addictions, work, ministry, or entertainment addictions, and fantasy addictions.
When you face uncontrolled negative emotions and thoughts such as fear, anger, jealousy, bitterness, hate, suicide, depression, doubt, and guilt.
When you have difficulties with sleep such as needing excessive amount of sleep, getting too little sleep, or having nightmares and excessive daydreams.
When you experience physical problems without a known physical cause, or a physical cause which is not responding to or resolved by medical treatment.
The Complete Person Approach
We believe the human being is made up of spirit, soul and body. Medical science is now beginning to understand the importance of spirituality upon the outcomes of physical healing, and many hospitals utilize chaplains from various religious beliefs to provide support to patients.
Our Counseling is based on the concept that the three parts of man (spirit, soul, and body) are connected and have a profound influence on each other.
Our thought and beliefs have an enormous effect upon our mental and emotional stability, our physical health, our relationships with others, and our overall degree of success in life.
Therefore, we look at the relationship between each of the parts of man, recognizing that counseling must deal with the total person in order to have a positive lasting effect.
All sessions are by appointment only.
You will always be treated in a professional manner in an environment that is safe and private.
The first session is approximately two hours in length. You will be asked to fill out a brief Personal Information sheet. This gives the counselor an overview of your life’s journey and possibly some insights before any details are discussed in a session.
There maybe more than one counselor in the session and notes will be taken during the session to keep a brief record of what is said and what occurs and to provide feedback.
Next, you will be encouraged to share some details of the situation for which you are seeking counseling. As you share your thoughts, feeling, beliefs, and experiences the counselor will be listening closely to understand your words, feelings, and the essence of your communication.
In the next step the counselor will appeal to your own good desires to resolve the difficulties, and will discuss causes, goals, and solutions, and will begin to create a plan of action with you.
The counselor may provide printed materials to reinforce the topic that is covered in a session. You may also be given assignments such as making a list of your priorities and ranking them in the order in which you want to work through them.
