Places To Stand

It is helpful for people to stand back from their lives and look at what is happening for them from another perspective. Different counselling modalities use different dialects to speak about this, but most models offer some way of reflecting on life. I will invite counsellors to explore their life story as told by God and look at various models of standing back and reflecting on life.

Clarifying the Vision

From a renewed perspective, people can see past their current distress to some preferred possibilities. This is about helping people to name and move towards the preferred.

Locating Ourselves in Community

The end point of God’s work in the world is eternal love community. Our work as counsellors cooperates with God’s work in connecting people with others in their hoped-for goals. This is where we see life as a collective purpose – where are we going? And how might I contribute to that purpose?
