Units of Pastoral Counselling Education (PCE) prepare student-interns to be psycho-spiritual therapists in a variety of faith-based and secular settings, including parish ministry, counselling agencies, social service agencies, hospices, elder-care facilities and private practice. Essentially, psycho-spiritual therapy or what is sometimes referred to as pastoral psychotherapy, is a faith-based approach to professional counselling which incorporates a range of evidence-based therapeutic modalities, in conjunction with pastoral and spiritual care. It is a form of holistic psychotherapy which addresses a need for a sensitive and skilled relational approach, which is also highly respectful of the religious faith traditions and practices of clients.
Psycho-spiritual therapists undertake an intensive journey of training in the healing art, specializing in individual, couple, and family therapy, with a capacity to understand and relate theologically to clients who wish to integrate faith and spirituality into their treatment goals.
