Degree Description:

The Spiritual Counseling or Pastoral Counseling degree is the primary path for students who desire to conduct spiritual counseling, transpersonal counseling, life coaching, write books, do training or speaking, practice holistic arts, conduct pastoral social work, and more. This degree program will teach students our proprietary style of coaching/counseling called Life Leadership Coaching --A Transpersonal Approach to Self-Completeness. This model of counseling/coaching is both brilliant and elegant as well as extremely effective in assisting others.

This intensive program teaches students many practical life skills with the intention of better helping clients, as well as many specific coaching/counseling techniques. Life Coaching focuses on helping clients achieve goals and overcome personal and professional challenges whereas Spiritual Counseling primarily addresses the spiritual nature of client issues and is an integral part of pastoral counseling. Students will learn techniques for both counseling and coaching modalities so that they may be better equipped to address a variety of client needs.

Graduates are provided with a full complement of discovery and analysis forms. Note that our Spiritual Counseling program does not incorporate any specific religious teachings. In fact, Spiritual Counseling does not require religion to be effective, but you are free to incorporate what you learn into your own religious teachings, if desired.
