What Is Pastoral Counseling, Anyway

  Pastoral Counseling is a confusing title for many; it's for:  

  • Counseling is done by an ordained clergy person.
  • Counseling for spiritual issues or matters of faith.
  • Counseling is done with members of a church or religious group to deal with conflicts.
  • Counseling for those who are more comfortable talking in traditionally religious language, rather than psychological terms  
  • Those who feel more comfortable talking to a religious leader rather than with a secular counselor.
  • Anyone who experienced the 'eye-roll' or was told they should talk to a minister by a therapist when spiritual issues or matters of faith were raised in a counseling session.
  • For the person who wishes to deal with a secular issue in a way that respects their faith
