|Let not your heart be troubled. We know that God causes
everything to work together for the good of those who love
God and are called according to his purpose for them.
John 14:1, Romans 8:35
|As a Christian counselor, when we ask God to direct a counseling
session, then it is His agenda that we seek to discern and follow,
and it is His healing that we encounter.
Together we will listen to and cooperate with our Creator, who
knows us better than we know ourselves. I will take time to
listen and understand your views and values, give perspective,
identify alternatives. New skills will be taught and modeled. I will
expect commitment and monitor results. However, responsibility
for making changes is left in your hands. Your competence and
control will not be undermined but enhanced.
Counseling is temporary, yet powerful. It is caring, yet objective.
There is no room for falseness or pretense. It is often difficult.
Growth is sometimes painful. Truth is hard to face. The old ways
are hard to give up. Counseling is an experience in elemental
honesty, openness, and courage.
