Welcome to Berean Biblical Counseling!
In pursuing godly advice and guidance through the process of biblical counseling, you are taking the first steps to finding HOPE. We look forward to getting to know you and humbly serving you by Engaging, Encouraging and Equipping you to grow more like Christ.
Biblical counseling is a one-to-one discipleship relationship, based on the Word of God, where those struggling with sin-related battles and suffering can find answers to their problems. Counsel flows from the sovereignty and authority of God’s Word, centered on the gospel, which provides hope through Christ and His resources. It is all dependent on the Holy Spirit’s power and motivated by the love and compassion of the local church.
The process of change and growth requires a commitment by both you and your counselor. This intake information will help define the problems you are challenged with and what counselor may be best suited to help. If you’re not sure you are ready to fill out the paperwork, or still have questions before you do, we are happy to have an informal consultation meeting with you to help better explain the process.
Also know that in most cases, Berean will have two individuals present during counseling sessions. This includes a trained and experienced biblical counselor, as well as an advocate, who is there to provide additional support and accountability as the relationship advances. Biblical counselors are assigned by the ministry leadership based on availability and expertise. In some cases, there may be a wait based on availability. You and your counselor will establish the meeting times and locations ahead of time. Changes to timing and attendance should be done at least a day in advance. The length of the sessions is typically between 60-90 minutes, but they may vary based on the circumstances as the biblical counselor deems necessary. The number of sessions can also vary depending on the issues at hand.
If you have any questions in filling out the intake information, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to meeting you and serving you in the Lord as we seek to glorify God in every aspect of our lives.
In His Service,
The Berean Biblical Counseling Ministry Team
