Spiritual Unification Institute of AIWP providing individual, couples, and family pastoral counseling, mentorship and education. Mentors are teachers, coaches, devil’s advocates, and role models, who listen, offer nonjudgmental feedback, challenge assumptions, and help sort out alternatives. We can help mentees who are concerned about being “pigeonholed” in a role. We can and should urge people to take on “stretch” roles and build succession plans to help mentees move out of certain roles. And we can urge mentees to become mentors themselves, since with more of us mentoring; we can make an even greater difference.

People who seek of Pastoral Counseling do not consider themselves as having a disorder or an illness and would not be so regarded by their counselor. Pastoral Counseling is concerned with the existential, identity and spiritual concerns most individuals encounter in the course of their lives.

A Pastoral Counselor does not view himself as an expert but as a partner with considerable experience who joins a willing participant and shares in the responsibility for understanding, exploring and clarifying an individual’s or couple’s developmental life pursuits. This is a joint undertaking towards a better understanding and integration of one’s whole life experience.

“What distinguishes pastoral counseling from other forms of counseling and psychotherapy is the role and accountability of the counselor and his or her understanding and expression of the pastoral relationship. Pastoral counselors are representatives of the central images of life and its meaning affirmed by their religious communities. Thus pastoral counseling offers a relationship to that understanding of life and faith. Pastoral counseling uses both psychological and theological resources to deepen its understanding of the pastoral relationship.” Mentoring is a process for the informal transmission of knowledge, social capital, and the psychosocial support perceived by the recipient as relevant to work, career, or professional development; mentoring entails informal communication, usually face-to-face and during a sustained period of time, between a person who is perceived to have greater relevant knowledge, wisdom, or experience (the mentor) and a person who is perceived to have less (the protégé)”
