Growth: The Ultimate Goal of Pastoral Counselling

Description

The ultimate goal is not happiness but holiness. Our aim is not primarily helping the counselee to feel better, but to grow more into Christlikeness (Colossians 1: 28-29). Feeling well cannot be separated from doing the right things. Growth into maturity, the maturity of the whole person, is the test to measure “success” in pastoral counselling.
