Spiritual Counseling for the Inner Core of the Soul
A Spiritual Counselor needs an awareness and an understanding around spiritual emergency and other issues of spirituality. I recognise, and I am committed to, a spiritual journey in my own life, and the lives of others.
In Spiritual Counseling I try to have the emphasis is on wholeness, dealing with the whole person, and assisting the client with inner balance and integration of all the dimensions of Self.
By focusing on my client’s core inner connection, creating an open heart connection and a mindfulness state, I create and hold a sacred space for the personal unfold-ment of my clients.
It is experiential journey and focuses on the client’s individual experiences and reality, so the counselor respecting them as unique assumes that the client’s reality is different from their own.
As each client is seen as an individual the sessions are non-prescriptive and individually tailored. The counselor is thus active and creative, responding to the immediate issues brought by the client.
The assumption is that human beings are innately motivated towards achieving their highest potential of awareness and fulfillment; the it is my role is to support this and trust the client’s process.
The spiritual journey can be blissful and awakening, but also it can be arduous, frightening and lonely at times. Anyone can have a spiritual experience, or peak experience, but holistic self-realisation is a different matter. My role is to support my client through this process.
At times during the counseling I may suggest specific breathing techniques and a guided relaxation if needed for the client.
Having awareness of a spiritual identity; – that we are all more than our personalities and our problems.
Faith in Self; – that we have within us the wisdom to make the right choices.
Faith in potential; – that every situation has a potential for growth.
Faith in the journey; – that our lives have meaning.
Faith in Spirit; – that we are truly Spiritual Beings.
Peace and blessings xx
