Christian counseling is pastoral/spiritual counseling which uses psychology and Christian teaching to address issues of the heart and soul. As a Christian therapist I seek to help clients work through psychological and spiritual issues using both traditional therapeutic methods and a philosophy based on traditional Christian beliefs and the teachings of the Bible; I endeavour to honour a client's particular spiritual beliefs and faith. I believe a person's faith is a resource and strength as they journey on their path to wholeness. Consequently I address issues from a spiritually integrated perspective that goes beyond just the physical, psychological and emotional aspects of a client's life

We are not built to carry the burdens of life. Jesus died for us so we no longer have to carry our burdens. Therefore it is only by giving them to God that we are truly set free. "Come to me all those who are weary and heavy laden for I will give you rest" (Matthew 11 v 28). Christian counseling is what God has called Margriet to do. She has a passion to see people healed and live the life God has destined for them. Margriet believes the Lord has "plans to prosper you, and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future" (Jer 29:11). By using the Word, prayer, and discovering who you are in Christ, Margriet will help you transform your life.

We are not alone in this world. We have the greatest gift ever given to us, God. He has created us, one of a kind, completely unique. His love for us is unconditional . Nothing can ever separate us from him, because he is in every cell our being. His word brings us hope and peace. Be it personal issues, relationship issues, or any other concerns , He is our healer .

I seek to bring a wholeistic process to counselling. I use the bible as my base, dealing with issues from a christian biblical view point. How we deal with our issues from a rational (how we think), emotional (how we feel) and behavioral (how we act) point of view is important in the context of a biblical foundation. Counselling from a Christian bases helps you identify your core needs and how we are trying to get those needs met often without success apart from seeking a relationship with Jesus Christ as the one who can meet all our needs.

Though I do not practice Biblical counselling, I do have a strong values and beliefs in the Christian faith. When appropriate to my clients, the therapeutic process may consist of meditation, prayers or the reading of inspiring spiritual material. At no time do I impose my beliefs and values to my clients however I give my clients the option of using Christian practices if they so desire.

We are created in the image of God...created for relationship. God's relationship with humans is healing, and He has designed human relationship that are authentic, empathic, transparent to be healing as well. Our respectful approach models after Jesus...asking curious questions, laughter, being empathic and connecting even while boldly discussing difficult and painful issues in courageous way. Carolyn Bergen and her colleagues' goals are wholeness and transformation.

It was the late psychiatrist M. Scott Peck who suggested a translation of Jesus' words in the Sermon on the Mount, to say we are blessed when we are confused. Pursuing faith, or any life examined really, will leave us at times with periods of questions, ones we don't always have answers for. And yet we struggle onward. Peck also said that the God who comes after real scrutiny, bears little resemblance to the one before we wrestle with our deep, dark questions of the soul. I endeavor to honor the pursuit of a living, vibrant life of faith.

I believe that there is nothing deeper to human beings than our faith. For believers of the King, He is the key to every problem we encounter in life. I respect that we are all at different places in our faith. While I believe that it is only by God's grace that we even live and breathe, I respect the pace and place of where other's are at. I also recognize that some of us have trust issues with God. I have been there. I want to walk with people and their issues, and help them grow in their faith so that they can eventually be set free to be all that God created them to be.

To truly experience the abundant life, we need to come to the place of dependence on God for not only the material things in life, but for deep healing and transformation so that we become what God created us to be. I have a deep passion to help believers come to this place of healing and dependence in their lives and will show you how by using the many skills, discernment and leading of the Holy Spirit, that I have come to depend on in my many years of counselling and personal experience.

I am a therapist who had been a Christian for 35 years. I am able to provide Christian counselling to clients if this is what they desire. I have used biblical passages, music and prayer within client sessions if this is what they wish. Though I do have a Christian background, I also respect the fact that not everyone pactices a religion or wishes to have this encompassed in their therapeutic experience and respect a client's wishes. I also believe that spirituality is not the same as religion and respect whatever a client feels they need within their therapeutic experience.

In order to live your best life possible, you need to consider the many dimensions of who you are and how you were created--the emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual. Like the supporting legs of a chair, you can only be balanced and healthy when these four areas are balanced and healthy. In working with a Christian counsellor who understands the importance of your spirituality and relationship with God, you will be able to answer the question “Where is God in all of this?” and explore how having a deeper and truer personal relationship with God will transform your life.

Proponents of holistic health care are quickly recognizing the benefits of addressing spiritual health in therapy since this is a vital part of a person’s identity. Health is therefore tied to accepting all aspects of ourselves. As Spiritual Director David Benner states, “Only when you accept who you really are, can you become who you are most deeply called to be.” Spiritual beliefs have a powerful influence on our behaviour and view of the self, others, the world, and God and provide meaning, direction, and hope. However, for some, spiritual experiences have been harmful, damaging their identity and concept of God. Therapy can provide a place to process these affects on your health.
