Carefully focusing on current struggles

New Ground Counseling begins with “what’s not working,” as we carefully examine struggles with hope for the future.  Life endlessly gives us new hurts, labors, and difficulties.  We are available as truthful, caring, and personal support for you as we sort through these.

Making the most of our time together:

For most clients, the following structure is used to make the most of our time together:

Pray.  Ask God for wisdom and for His help in life and counseling.

Connect and Review.  Catch up on life since last session, including homework.  Celebrate wins and examine losses.

Dialogue on Truth.  Interactively talk through a struggle or area of life, engaging the Bible along the way.

Apply It!  Examine practical applications that will help you make real changes according to the truth you now know.

Respond.  When we experience new truths from God, we respond and commit in appropriate ways, such as celebrating, asking for help, confessing, or making commitments.

Remember Comfort and Hope.  With all change that God asks us to make, He offers promises of new life, encouragement, and hope.

Pray.  Thank God for His assistance and ask Him to continue working in your life toward real, lasting change.

At-Home Practice.  

At-home practice helps you ‘live out’ new revelations and changes in counseling.  On topics that address your circumstances or problems, you might be given a booklet to read, media to engage with, a skill to practice, a task to complete, or a passage of Scripture to study personally.  Your work away from counseling is where we hope to see changes begin to take place!
