My Faith as a Christian is an integral part of my identity as to my race and ethnicity. And I value and respect other people's race, culture, opinions, expressions, choice of lifestyle and choice of spirituality and beliefs.
"Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellors they are established".

Christian Counselling offers one a forum to express and reflect on their experiences and thoughts from a faith or biblical perspective with a counsellor that shares the same belief, values and assumptions; Without judging, whilst considering what the word of God says concerning your life, family, children, marriage, physical or mental health, lifestyle, etc. In recognition that all scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16).
We might also need a christian counsellor when we find ourselves in need of guidiance when we are:
- weary in our walk with God
- troubled by the changing times
- wavering in our faith or having doubts or questions due to issues confronting us.
