“Peace to the far-off, peace to the near-at-hand,” says God, “and yes, I will heal them.”
Isaiah 57:19 (The Message)
The focus of Holistic Christian Counseling is to bring attention & health to the whole being of the individual. Our intent is to bring healing & well-being to the entire person: Mind, Soul & Spirit.
Counseling and mentoring are available to Christian leaders & their families. We at Westwood want to offer a listening ear and understanding heart when it comes to the sharing of personal, marital, family and church-related issues. Our goal is to offer Christian leaders holistic Biblical counseling in complete confidentiality. We hope to offer a place and a person who are both safe for the participant and empowered by The Holy Spirit of God. Counselors are to bring the best skills possible for the counseling setting, yet God is the healer, and it is His insight, wisdom and light we seek.
Westwood offers Holistic Christian Counseling care through the inner healing avenues of:
- Inner Healing Counseling based on principals of the Word of God and power of the Holy Spirit.
- Spiritual formation for missionary and ministry families.
- Contemplative prayer retreats: 1, 3 or 5 day retreats for spiritual formation guided by a spiritual director or mentor.
- Mentoring relationships for on-going discipleship.
Westwood also enjoys a partnership with the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC) and is credentialed by the International Board of Christian Counselors (IBCC).
The AACC Foundation IS A NON-PROFIT WORLDWIDE RESOURCE that exists to encourage the development of Christian counseling worldwide through funding of various programs that are not priorities in a for-profit, business model, but are nonetheless crucial to the comprehensive development of a Christian counseling ministry.
AACC is committed to assisting Christian counselors and the entire ‘community of care,’ licensed professionals, pastors, and caring church members with little or no formal training. It is their intention to equip clinical, pastoral, and lay care-givers with Biblical truth and psycho-social insights that ministers to hurting persons and helps them move to personal wholeness, interpersonal competence, mental stability, and spiritual maturity.
