Spiritual Direction FAQs

In each session, your Spiritual Life Coach will lead you through a process that will help you define achievable goals, empower you to cooperate more effectively with God’s grace, make a plan to overcome the obstacles in your path, and connect you with new resources and skills. Through the process of Spiritual Life Coaching, you’ll learn to encounter Christ in more meaningful ways and experience the power of your faith like never before.
Absolutely. Rather than coming to an office, tele-coaching brings your coach into your life. Tele-coaching is a convenient and effective way to get the support you need to live a more abundant life.
Certainly not. Spiritual Life Coaching is a great way for people at every stage of their spiritual walk to grow in their faith and live a more meaningful, grace-filled life.
After the initial goal planning phase, most people meet with their coach at least every other week. You and your coach will work out a plan that enables you to get the level of support you need to achieve your goals.
While both Pastoral Counseling and Spiritual Life Coaching can help you apply your faith to your life in more meaningful and powerful ways, pastoral counseling is primarily concerned with helping people overcome problems that are causing significant struggles in your personal emotional, relational life. By contrast, Spiritual Life Coaching focuses exclusively on helping people gather the resources and skills they need to achieve greater and more rapid personal and spiritual growth.
Although most people will choose to participate in either Pastoral Counseling or Spiritual Life Coaching, there are some times when both can be useful. For instance; a person may hit a snag in the coaching process that may call for brief counseling to support the process. Or, a person who is getting close to graduating from counseling--but who would still like to receive ongoing support to maintain their success--may begin working with a coach. At Pastoral Solutions, our spiritual life coaches and pastoral counselors work together to help you get the level of support you need to achieve and maintain all your goals.
