Counselling & Support Groups

Counselling & Support Groups

Unionville Alliance Church has on-site professional counselors who provide confidential, professional Christian counseling. These are fee based services charged by the councilor.    

What is Christian Counseling? Christian counseling is the ministry of one individual (the counselor) seeking to join people in their struggle, as God does, and to assist them in their healing journey toward the effective management of life's challenges. It is offered by those whose personal faith and hope rest in Jesus Christ. We believe that God there, in the lives of our clients, and in the counseling process.

When to Seek Counseling - Most of the time we can cope with the problems and stresses that we encounter day-today, but sometimes they can pileup and become overwhelming. God did not create us to live in isolation, independent from one another. It is normal that all of us would, at one time or another, need help in negotiating the challenges of life.

When you face major decisions such as marriage, career choice, or spiritual direction

When routine problem-solving and challenges of life seem overwhelming

When you face crisis issues such as divorce, job loss, major or long-term illness, the death of a loved one, and physical, mental, emotional, verbal or sexual abuse

When you face unresolved conflicts in relationships

When you cannot control negative emotions and thoughts such as fear, anger, jealousy, hate, suicide, depression, doubt and guilt

When you experience physical problems without a known physical cause
