What is the mission of Life in His Hands Biblical Pastoral Counseling?
Our mission is to show all who come as a counselee that Jesus Christ is the light that brings healing. To find biblical solutions and work towards goals set by The Great Physician, monitored by prayer and a helping relationship, and executed through the life of the counselee. To remove all secular labels and start fresh. To teach that although we are sinful, Jesus loves us so much, and His love for us is greater than His disappointment for our actions. To remind every counselee that they are saved by God’s grace, not by their own works. Therefore, we can never ‘work’ our way out of painful situations, but rather we can only surrender and allow Him to direct us out.
How long do sessions continue?
Although there is no set about of time that we put on our sessions, we do encourage you to work with us in the first session to set goals, the types of goals, and the working styles that will lead to achievement. By the end of the first session we will discuss a point in time when you can target as a final session date. This is a soft ending, with the big goal of moving us towards a conclusion.
Are you saying that my sessions may have a start date and an end date?
Yes. Without a start date, we can’t begin counseling. If we don’t have an end date, then we can’t end our sessions correctly. As a biblical counselor, my job is to help you get back to life without the need of a weekly trip to the counselor. You are strong, and we are going to find that strength, so that you can walk tall and free once again, all under His power.
When, where, and how are coaching sessions conducted?
After the initial meeting to establish the guidelines and expectations of working together, coaching sessions can be done either face-to-face, by phone, or Skype. Sessions typically last 60 minutes. The schedule, format and location of sessions is established by you and I together to best meet your needs. Between sessions e-mail may be used to communicate questions and answers.
