How does counseling work?
How long does the counseling process take?
Counseling sessions are generally one hour in length and weekly appointments are ideal, especially in the beginning of the process. Longer sessions (90 minutes) for couples are necessary. Depending on the nature of the problem, an individual can expect to spend five to eight months in the discipleship counseling process, longer if necessary.
How much does counseling cost?
What if I must cancel my counseling appointment?
What types of payments do you accept?
Lifewell Ministries accepts all major credit cards along with cash and checks. We also accept HSA (health savings account) cards.
Does Lifewell Ministries accept insurance for counseling?
Since we are not an organization which seeks state-licensure, our services are not covered by insurance. Our counselors are licensed / ordained pastors providing services under ecclesiastical authority. Accepting insurance demands that we diagnose and label clients with a mental disorder which is inconsistent with our counseling model.
What kind of training does your staff have?
The counselors at Lifewell Ministries are licensed pastoral counselors who have been Biblically trained to minister God’s grace through both the Exchanged Life Discipleship Counseling and Formational Prayer processes. In addition. all Lifewell Ministries counselors are Board Certified Pastoral Counselors through the Board of Examiners for Georgia Christian Counselors and Therapists (GBOE).
