We have a dedicated team of Christian counselors whose services are to the individual, the family, professional, pastors and the community. We seek God’s wisdom in the Bible to bring hope, peace, psychological, emotional, spiritual healing and restoration while using skills and techniques that are clinically effective.
The Bible is clear that we often need the wise counsel of others, especially those who are mature in the faith
Our Christian counselors understand the value of your faith and as such incorporate both Theology and psychology in your therapy or counseling session.
Answers to Common Questions About Counseling
When should you seek counseling?
From childhood through late adulthood, there are certain times when we may need help addressing problems and issues that cause us emotional distress or make us feel overwhelmed. When you are experiencing these types of difficulties, you may benefit from the assistance of an experienced, trained professional. Professional counselors offer the caring, expert assistance that we often need during these stressful times.
Good indicators of when you should seek counseling are when your ability to concentrate is diminished, you have sleeplessness, decreased appetite, not interested in things that you ordinarily enjoyed or when your level of pain becomes uncomfortable,” says Dr. Harriet Ansah founder of Evolve Well Counsellors. However, you don’t want to wait until the pain becomes unbearable or you’re at the end of your rope. You can reach out to a counsellor to help you sort out your feelings.
What is professional counseling?
Professional counselors work with individuals, families, groups and organizations. Counseling is a collaborative effort between the counselor and client. Professional counselors help clients identify goals and potential solutions to problems which cause emotional turmoil; seek to improve communication and coping skills; strengthen self-esteem; and promote behavior change and optimal mental health.
Is everything I say confidential?
As a client, you are guaranteed the protection of confidentiality within the boundaries of the client/counselor relationship. Any disclosure will be made with your full written, informed consent and will be limited to a specific period of time. The only limitations to confidentiality occur when a counselor feels that there is clear and imminent danger to you or to others, or when legal requirements demand that confidential information be disclosed such as a court case. Whenever possible, you will be informed before confidential information is revealed.
We have professionally trained counsellors to best meet your needs.
