My Counselling approach
I accept non christian clients,those in the beginning of their Christian walk and christian clients ,however my Counselling is always bible based.
I believe that my clients have the desire and the capacity to experience emotional and spiritual growth and understanding through knowing ,or be open and willing to get to know christian values to help overcome personal issues, and the worlds troubles , learnt through informed dialogue,questions and answers .
Through the sessions the client can understand the spiritual side to being a human being and to being open to lead to spiritual growth and healing.
I will encourage through emotional healing and well being. I follow the model of christian standards ,Attitudes ,Values and beliefs and lifestyle and aim to encourage my client to this understanding but never through force or pressure to comply.
Its about YOUR choice.
I present and teach understandings of the Gospel and how to use it in your life & encourage commitment to Jesus Christ of Nazareth .Development of Christian values & biblical living.
