Spiritual Counseling

With so much mainstream emphasis on mental and physical wellness it is no wonder that more and more people are feeling out of balance and that there is something vital missing from their self -care regimens. If a person has been raised with a religion that they no longer resonate with, or without religion or faith at all, they may need guidance with discovering their own sense of spirituality or creating a space to experience a variety of approaches to faith based living. Even when a person has been faithfully attending church services and engaged in daily prayer, they might find that they don’t feel spiritually whole and they may seek assistance with taking their spiritual life to another level. Spiritual counselors help people along their path to spiritual growth. The objective can include finding a life purpose, overcoming obstacles, and putting pain and grief into perspective. The spiritual path doesn’t look the same for everyone, so it’s no surprise that there are spiritual counselors representing different concepts of spirituality, including religious and nonreligious belief systems. Spiritual counselors do a lot more than listen, they may also employ an array of healing modalities to help their client release emotional, spiritual or psychological blockages that may be standing in the way of a client connecting to their highest level of being. Short term spiritual goals and long term spiritual goals may be different as the client may have issues in the mental or physical realms that need to be addressed simultaneous to spiritual growth before the client can reach higher levels of consciousness. Designing and implementing a daily routine for spiritual health is commonly addressed and will usually include meditation, manifestation work, and/or prayer.
