Frequently Asked Questions

What is Biblical Counselling
Biblical counselling can be seen as a process of focused discipleship. That focuses on apply God’s Word and yielding to God’s Spirit when dealing with the matters of life as a whole and sufferings. You guide me with Your counsel,

and afterward You will receive me to glory. Psalm 73:24
Blessed is the man
who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners,
nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
but his delight is in the law of the LORD,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
He is like a tree
planted by streams of water
that yields its fruit in its season,
and its leaf does not wither.
In all that he does, he prospers. Psalm 1:1-3 ESV

How do I get started?

It is important you feel a good, warm connection with your counsellor. The best way to know if we are a good match is to arrange a no-charge 20 minute, meet and greet consultation by phone or online.

How are the sessions normally structured?

The first session is used to get a thorough understanding of your history and why you
are reaching out for help. This is done in two ninety-minute sessions with a short break
(10 minute) in-between.

Generally, there are 6-8 weekly, one hour sessions either online or in-person and then we re-evaluate the need to continue. Often people at that point, like to cut back frequency. Everyone is welcome to book sessions as needed from there on out.

What does a typical session look like?

Each session is personalized to address current needs and obstacles to experiencing God’s
supernatural peace and joy. We pray, I listen, we discuss how the previous sessions lessons
were applies or challenged, we open our Bibles, we talk and we pray
