Why did you decide to pursue a degree/licensing in Christian Counseling?
Credentials and personal growth.
Why did you select Above & Beyond Counseling Academy as your school?
Highly recommended and supportive. Testimonials of others who have gone through their ministry and courses and compassion shown by Dr. Ibbitson.
What was your overall experience with the training?
Very encouraging and tremendously supportive.
Which teachings or aspects of the program did you enjoy the most?
Marriage and Temperament therapy.
What have you done (or plan to do) with your degree/licensing?
Both the degree and licensing have given me and the ministry The Lord has entrusted us with a greater appreciation and credibility. I have used this degree and Christian licensing in the continuation to consult those in the Education Profession.
Any suggestions you would make to potential students who are considering this training?
Once you decide to pursue your degree, schedule yourself according to deadlines and goals. The training and the privilege to see the Holy Spirit work in the lives of others is an experience that will last for eternity.
