Benefits of Pastoral Counseling

Pastoral counseling can provide specialized treatment to those seeking such but also meet more general counseling needs, it can be considered a versatile mode of therapy. An important ingredient in pastoral counseling that is different from other forms of counseling and psychotherapy is the conviction that mental and emotional illness are best met by both the wisdom of religious teachings and the knowledge and skills of the human behavioral sciences. This form of counseling can offer support to those seeking family, relationship, premarital, or individual counseling. More specifically, it may be helpful to individuals working through or challenged by any of the following situations: Grief and loss; Issues related to chronic or terminal illness; Conflicts around spiritual beliefs; Reintegration into community life after institutionalization or incarceration; Adjusting to mental health support when wary of the system.
