"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God." -2 Corinthians 1:3-4
The Christian Counselling Centre was started 16years back and functioned every Thursday evening with the help of a psychiatrist and a medical doctor. In January 2005, women's fellowship rededicated this ministry and appointed a professional Christian counsellor so that this service is available on all days. This ministry is to help individuals gain better understanding, improve decision-making abilities and problem solving skills and to help in personal growth for effective living. It allows people to talk through their own areas of difficulty with a trained counsellor, explore the issues and through prayer seek God's guidance in finding solutions. This ministry is open to all.
Though counselling requires professional training, we encourage our congregation members to be a part of this ministry, by taking on the role of Volunteer Lay Counsellors. A one-day Orientation Workshop on Lay Counselling was organized for those members interested in knowing about Christian Counselling. The Orientation Workshop was followed by a Training Course for Lay Counsellors.
The Centre has the services of a well-qualified part time Counsellor and four fully qualified Counsellors who are members of our Church. Of these, a husband and wife team have doctorates and are internationally recognized as Counsellors, trainers and faculty. Another lady Counsellor is nationally recognized as Counsellor, trainer and faculty; and the fourth is a retired Pastor with wide counselling experience.
Any one in need can just walk in for help or call over the telephone.
Your counselling request will be strictly confidential and only the counsellor can access it.
