Denise is a NACHP and CCC registered counsellor, Stuart is a NCP (Fellow) and NACHP registered psychotherapist and counsellor.
We adhere to appropriate National Occupational Standards, carry professional insurance and are subject to regulation in therapy. Stuart is a CNHC registered hypnotherapist (voluntary regulation of hypnotherapy).
Counselling has many forms and types. Indeed there is movement underway to regulate counselling as a profession within the next few years.
It is unlikely that pastoral and spiritual counselling will be regulated, since it is primarily clinical application of counselling that is under scrutiny. However it may well be that pastoral counsellors will need to be renamed in some way in years to come.
Pastoral counselling and spiritual counselling refers to providing listening skills and counselling skills within the context of the client's faith and belief system. Thus elements of the faith of the client will have an important impact on the way that they wish to develop and move forward.
It is important that this form of therapy is never used as a platform for attempted conversion. The client should be encouraged to explore their belief and options, and the role of the therapist is to support and enable this.
Stuart tends to work in a multi-faith context and has experience of pastoral counselling with Christians, Muslims, Pagans, Buddhists, Taoists, Kabballists and Eclectics. Denise tends to work with Pagan and Wiccan clients.
In some faiths the pastoral support also involves ritual, healing and energy healing methods, although this is faith specific.
