What is soul care?
You are Gods creation. You are a unique soul. You have a purpose. Sometimes we get disoriented. We have all experienced shattered shalom and our souls are divided (Shabar.) Soul care allows time and creates space to examine where obstacles are hindering your healing and growth.
t is this process that makes room for you to discover and remember who God created you to be. A time of re-orienting so you can be assured of "Whose you are", "who you are" and reach your God appointed destiny. The aim of Biblical soul care is to integrate identity with scripture, neurobiology, affect regulation, and grow attachment/relational capacity.
What is Narrative coaching?
God is the author of all stories. You are a story written by Him. We are shaped by stories. There are stories within our story that impact how we view ourselves, others and God. Often our stories need to be re-engaged to bring truth and light into places that are keeping us bound and stuck. Sometimes we have misinterpreted our "shaping" stories, we need sojourners to guide us and allow God to bring a new perspective as well as restoration and redemption. Through this process we can learn to embrace our story to bring hope and healing to ourselves and others. With the intended purpose of living and loving in the present, participating with God in your transformation and changing the trajectory of your future.
