YMPC Counseling Policy
Life is hard. And there are times when the struggles of life feel overwhelming. We believe that biblical counseling functions as an extension of discipleship to help you meet the challenges of life in a way that will please and honor the Lord. We are dedicated to promoting the authority and sufficiency of the scriptures, the ministry of the Holy Spirit, and the community of believers for solving the problems of life.
Your counseling session will last approximately 60-75 minutes. The frequency of sessions will be recommended on a case-by-case basis. Counseling is most effective when it is consistent. However, the goal of biblical counseling is to equip you to counsel yourself from the scriptures for present and future struggles. It is not intended to be a long-term endeavor.
Long Distance Counseling
While face-to-face counseling is always preferred, Alex will hold virtual sessions. If you are looking for a certified biblical counselor in your area, you can search for one in your state and city at http://www.biblicalcounseling.com.
Homework is an integral part of the biblical counseling process. It takes the counseling from the office to real life and encourages a deepening dependence on the Lord. Homework may include reading and listening materials, lists or logs, journaling, scripture memory, Bible studies, and practical living assignments. Your effort and commitment to complete the assignments is very important. You will need to bring all completed homework with you to your counseling sessions.
Contact individual counselors for their fee schedule.
