Q – How do I know if I need counselling or Inner Healing Prayer?
A – Counselling provides a safe place to talk. It is a time to look at rational and emotional and behavioural ways to manage the pain inside, discover new behaviours, work on steps to recovery, manage conflicted relationships, manage anger or continue with support on your journey of vulnerability and emotional health. Inner Healing is a prayer based session where you receive truths from God as you address the painful lies you are believeing about yourself and God. It is not a counselling based session. It is entirely your decision to make.Q – What if I am not a member of Evangel Church?
A – This service is available to anyone who asks. It does not matter if you are a member of this church or any church.Q – What if I am unable to attend my appointment?
A – Please call the ministry assistant ASAP.
Q - Can I donate using a credit card?
A – Yes
Q – Who will see my file?
A – All files are kept in a locked cabinet. Your counsellor, the supervisor and the ministry assistant are the only ones with access to your records. You may request copies of your file notes at any time.
