COUNSELING INFORMATION AND COVENANT
Tools: We use helpful counseling forms such as this Personal Data Information
form and other aids to gain an understanding of the central problems a person
Listening: We encourage the counselee to speak his/her mind in an appropriate
fashion and to discuss thoughts, anxieties, resentments, and fears so that
the counselor will have a clear understanding of the central problems.
Counselees make more rapid progress when they are required to study or to
perform specific informational or behavioral assignments which pertain to the
problem. We tailor these assignments to the individual counselee and the circumstances.
We are not interested in wasting the time of the counselors or the counselees.
We are interested in believers learning how to experience the peace and joy
that result from a walk of thankful obedience to God's Word, and we hold the
counselees accountable for doing the assignments on schedule.
does biblical counseling take?
Typically pre-engagement is 3 weeks and pre-marriage is 4 weeks unless you and the counselor see benefit in more.
does it cost?
Counseling is a ministry of The Chapel
available for those who attend one service a week and/or attend one of The Chapel' Partner Churches. Biblical Counseling is provided for those at
no cost. Donations to the Counseling Ministry are always welcome.
We are careful to protect each counselee's
confidentiality. There are times, however, when a counselor must consult with
other counselors for advice. If information is revealed in counseling which
indicates a genuine potential for harm to a counselee or others, the counselor
may be required by law or biblical mandate to share that information with the
appropriate authorities or family members.
The Chapel is on mission to reach every Man, Woman & Child
with repeated opportunities to hear and see the Gospel of Jesus Christ
