Solution Focused Ministries®

Solution Focused Ministries® provides Biblical counseling for those seeking to change their lives with God's loving help and guidance.

 

Throughout the counseling session, the goal is to change the counselee's focus on the "false" self [problem focused], a self of lusts and appetites to a realization of his "true" self [solution focused], a self in union with Christ.

Most counseling, throughout the world, are problem focused in their approach to the counseled. This ministry's counseling is Solution Focused. There is a pointed difference in feel and outcomes.

 

Solution Focused Ministries® deal with a wide range of problems including wounded marriages, parent-child relationships, fear, grief, depression, anxiety, alcohol and drug abuse, and other problems resulting in broken hearts and mental anguish.

 

Grace and Peace can be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord (2 Peter 1:2).


Solution Focused Ministries® has six presuppositions to counseling and how they can direct the counseling for you.

1. God has given us the ability to create solutions
2. The solutions can be described and clarified
3. More than one outcome to counseling can be created
4. The counselor and the couselee can do the creating and clarifying together
5. We create solutions as a joint effort with God's preparation
6. This process can be taught

Our Guiding Assumptions

1. God is already active in the counselee
2. Complex problems do not demand complex solutions
3. Finding exceptions helps create solutions
4. The counselee is always changing
5. The counselee is the expert and defines goals
6. Solutions are co-created
7. The counselee is not the problem, the problem is
8. The counseling relationship is positional
9. The counselor's focus is on solutions

What is Biblical counseling?

Biblical counseling is based on the premise that the Word of God provides the only authoritative rule for what we are to believe and how we are to live.

 

2 Timothy 3:16-17 tells us, "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work."

 

We will concentrate on three basic foundations from God’s Word:

 

Hope - because God showed us His great love by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. Through faith in His love, even in times of trial, we can have hope, and hope does not disappoint. As we humble ourselves before God, realizing what He has done on our behalf, our fear (reverence) for Him will be the beginning of true wisdom (Romans 5:1-8; Proverbs 9:10).

 

Change - because in Jesus Christ we can learn how to be renewed in the spirit of our mind and put on new ways of thinking and living that are worthy of the Lord. We desire to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in good works, and increasing in the knowledge of God (Ephesians 4:20-24; Colossians 1:10).

 

Practice - because we need to prove ourselves to be doers of God’s Word, lest we be merely hearers, forgetting and deluding ourselves. Only in effectual practice of the Scriptures will we be blessed in what we do (James 1:22-25).

 

For those seeking help for themselves in their lives and the lives of those they love and wanting God's help to achieve it... Solution Focused Ministries® can aid in reaching those goals.
