Practical Christian Counselling

FOREWORD

Counselling is a highly idiosyncratic activity. From the mine of belief, reading and experience each counsellor must quarry that which will meet the needs of those who come for help. While text books and manuals abound, this contribution is not 'just another' one. Geoff Bingham takes his readers behind the scenes of actual practice to get down to fundamental assumptions, beliefs and attitudes. This is unusual, but helpful in showing how they lead to the style of counselling which follows.

There is a strongly didactic approach here, in contrast to the recently-popular but now passing 'non-directive' fashion in counselling. There is a blending of head and heart with primary emphasis on Biblical wisdom and true love. Hence, counselling becomes the communication of foundational Biblical truths to be received and accepted. This transmission of truth depends on the counsellor having a full experience, as well as clear understanding of theological principles.

This is a radical approach to counselling in the true sense of radical-getting to the root of the matter.

John H. Court, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Psychology at Flinders University of SA. Bedford Park, South Australia.
