The Philippi Model of Counselling
(Based on Matthew 5:3-10) The Philippi Model of counselling encourages the counselee the take responsibility for their own lives and for the process of change and growth into mature people.
The aim is to offer counselling which provides hope whilst encouraging the counselee to recognise their own value as an individual and as a person of worth within their church and community so that through a process of growth or understanding they might experience a sense of peace.
HOPE ………………….that is realistic
ENCOURAGEMENT….that is meaningful
VALUE………………...as an individual
WORTH………………..within their home, church and community.
RELATIONSHIP………to have a sense of belonging
Philippi Counselling Philosophy
A person needs counselling when they have a perceived significant loss of peace in their life. That sense of loss can be identified in one or three areas of their life - with God, their neighbour or themselves. It is when peace is restored in any or all of these areas that the need for counselling ends. (Rev. Malcolm Worsley)
The model is based on reflective listening; is non-intrusive and fully accepting of the counselee. Our model of counselling is non-abusive, largely non-directive, relationship and scripturally based. It combines the best Christian practices with appropriate secular wisdom in seeking to bring understanding and healing to those in need.
