Asking for help is the first step toward change. This is a good thing.
We want to be a church where gospel conversations happen at every level, as we encourage one another. However, at various times in our lives, we have all needed or will need formal counselling. Anyone wanting a conversation with one of our trained counsellors can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to walk alongside you in your journey toward healing, reconciliation, and peace.
What can you expect from us?
We are compassionate BSC staff and lay counsellors with education, training and certification in gospel centred counselling and theology. We are not licensed counsellors, therapists, psychiatrists or psychologists. We want to intentionally, lovingly walk alongside hurting people who are taking a courageous step of faith in sharing their struggles and pain with us. Our counsel is based on the sufficiency of God’s Word, which is not exhaustive, but comprehensive as it relates to understanding people and the problems of life.
What do we expect from you while in counselling?
Counselees are asked to attend weekend services every week in-person or online, attend scheduled sessions or provide 24 hours notice of cancellation and complete any assigned homework.
In addition to formal counselling, in some situations we will recommend to people that they do an intensive. This is a 1, 2 or 3 day counselling retreat, for particularly difficult issues where quick progress is crucial.
If you are in an emergency situation and need help, please call 911 immediately.
