When Jesus walked the earth He set an example of love and service. He showed a deep respect and regard for all people and acted from a heart of compassion. His main aim was to be obedient to His Father in loving, healing and capacitating all people. He never forced, coerced or manipulated anybody and never humiliated anybody. He equipped people from the communities to guide and teach and bring His healing to others around them. These basic principles are the foundational guidelines on which all work undertaken by Counselling@ is based.
