If you see yourself in any of the above descriptions you may want to consider spiritual counseling. Spiritual counseling provides a helping relationship from a spiritual perspective to those looking for support, assistance, or direction in their lives. Its goal is to assist people in knowing themselves as whole, completely acceptable and worthy of love, and able to love and forgive freely.
Spiritual counseling can assist those who already have a belief in a higher power, strengthening and deepening their relationship with the Divine in a way that is meaningful to her or him. But it can also be useful to those who don’t have a belief in God but are feeling the need to connect to something larger than themselves. The spiritual exploration in these cases can be about defining what this “larger something” is for each person individually.
Whatever religious or spiritual background you are coming from, or whether you have one at all, spiritual counseling can help you to understand and work with the problems, patterns, and blocks in your life by utilizing spiritual or metaphysical perspectives, tools, and strategies. By exploring these spiritual questions, concerns, and difficulties in a safe, supportive, and caring environment the process of spiritual growth is facilitated.
