Spiritual Counselling

Spiritual Counselling consists of giving advice and support so that a person can more fully experience her or his spiritual nature.

This counselling usually only lightly touches upon areas that are normally dealt with in personal psychology (such as relations, self-image, self-worth, habits and behaviours). The major focus is upon aspects such as: faith, devotion, wisdom, compassion, spiritual techniques (eg. prayer and meditation), and spiritual experiences.
In general, counselling works best through respect. The person giving advice is at heart, really not that much different than the person asking for it. Only, the counsellor usually has had more experience about the topic being discussed. When that topic is spirituality, the aim is to empower a basically well adjusted person to further his or her growth towards recognising and becoming part of the larger experience that we call life.
