Welcome to LMPC (Little Mountain Pastoral Counselling), thanks for showing an interest.
I’m offering a Counselling service from my home after many years of walking alongside people from all strands of life as Pastor of a local church. I love encouraging people, am not easily shocked, don’t like religious stuff, and hope you’ll enjoy browsing this website. If I can help in any way don’t be shy to be in touch.
When you share a burden you halve the load
When you halve the load you stand up taller
When you stand up taller you breathe more easily
When you breathe more easily you look around
When you look around you see the view
When you see the view you discover a way forward
And when you discover a way forward, HOPE ARISES!
John Cox – Just the Other Day
Almost every person experiences seasons in their life when challenges arise that are unexpected or unforeseen. Sometimes those moments catch us unaware and leave us feeling disoriented, full of questions and empty of explanations. Because we haven’t been here before it can be a lonely and even frightening journey.
Pastoral counselling embraces an understanding of what it means to be fully alive to include paying attention to our bodies, our minds, and our spirits. While there’s much mystery in these areas it is possible to be proactive and creative in exploring how these aspects of what ‘being human’ means. Usually our challenges have valid and authentic roots. It’s never weak to have needs, admit struggles, or to ask for help. In fact, asking for help is a sign of integrity and maturity.
LMPC offers a safe environment where you can ‘be yourself’ without fear of rejection, shame, or judgement. No matter how bad our situation there’s always hope for the future. We don’t have to live as victims of our past or our circumstances. Sometimes it feels we are powerless and imprisoned by relationships or situations beyond our control. That’s when having someone to talk to and walk alongside us can provide the breathing room and encouragement we need for hope to rise up. We can be empowered to make choices that give us healthy boundaries, learn how to let go of excess baggage, and begin to dream again.
