What is Spiritual Counseling?


Spiritual counseling is not psychological or psychotherapy counseling, but rather it is supportive, loving, and reflective listening by a spirituality-based practitioner who partners with you in tapping into your inherent wisdom so that together you may work though what needs to be healed or learned.  Some spiritual counselors offer the opportunity to meet in-person, while others meet with counseling clients via online sessions.  
There are many types of spiritual counselors spanning diverse faith traditions, cultures, ethnicities, philosophies, lineages, theological backgrounds, spiritual paths, and identities.  
A skilled spiritual counselor will help you to understand yourself and will work with you to find the healing, relief, answers, happiness, inner wisdom, peace, and enlightenment you seek. Some people who work with a spiritual counselor are simultaneously in psychotherapy, as they are different yet often complementary healing modalities, much like yoga, Ayurveda, or acupuncture.
