Why did you decide to pursue a Bachelors degree/licensing in Christian Counseling?
I had a calling on my heart to help people.
Why did you select Above & Beyond Counseling Academy as your school?
I felt the school’s mission statement represented my own beliefs. I also liked the self paced aspect of the program.
What was your overall experience with the training?
Overall it was good. I would have liked a few more group discussions however my supervisor was always responsive and I look forward to completing my masters program in the future.
Which teachings or aspects of the program did you enjoy the most?
I loved learning about Temperament Therapy and the use of the APS report.
What have you done (or plan to do) with your degree/licensing?
I am allowing the Holy Spirit to guide me. I feel I have a lot to offer in marriage and family and would like to teach Temperament Therapy. I am connected with a church and will start to counsel those who need my services. I also have leadership skills that I would like to use and hope to open my own Christian Counseling center in the future.
My suggestion to people considering the program is they need to be thinking about access to people who are willing to complete the APS questionnaires and follow up with a session. I completed 25 and now need to complete another 25 for my masters. Hence the challenge.
I believe the faculty at Above and Beyond Counseling are true to their name. They were professional and go to great lengths to assist you with reaching your goals.
