Christian Pastoral Counseling in Fort Payne, Alabama

Pastoral counseling is a branch of counseling in which psychologically trained ministers, rabbis, priests, imams, and other persons provide therapy services.  Pastoral counselors integrate modern psychological thought and method with traditional religious training in an effort to address psychospiritual issues in addition to the traditional spectrum of counseling services.

What distinguishes pastoral counseling from other forms of counseling and psychotherapy is the role and accountability of the counselor and his or her understanding and expression of the pastoral relationship.  Pastoral counselors are representatives of the central images of life and its meaning affirmed by their religious communities.  Thus pastoral counseling offers a relationship to that understanding of life and faith.  Pastoral counseling uses both psychological and theological resources to deepen its understanding of the pastoral relationship.  Membership in several organizations that combine theology and mental health has grown in recent years.  Some pastoral counselors have developed special training programs to encourage cooperation between religious professionals and medical professionals on treatment of issues like addiction, since spirituality is an important part of recovery for many people.

Christian Counseling

While a person can feel better after a good talk with a friend or relative, for moderate or severe emotional distress, this relief is only temporary.  Talking with a trained listener helps alleviate emotional distress for good.  The therapists in our practice are trained to listen and interact in a way that helps you get to the very root of your emotional concerns.

We offer you an opportunity to face your difficulties constructively and confidently freeing you to enjoy all the good things life has to offer.  Don't wait another minute.  Give us a call.  We'll give you an opportunity to meet with one of our therapists and see if our practice is right for you.
