Tracing behavioural patterns to their origins, providing context and offering options to break free...
Much is written today about Modern Psychology, Neuro Science which refers to the study of the brain and nervous system and the related forms of Counselling therapy. All these sciences are intended to help people better understand themselves and the environment in which they live. Their common factor is their learning outcomes are dependent upon the study of man's mind through study utilising man's mind.
What can we ask of a human mind to teach us of the human mind when we know so little of the functioning of the human mind, let alone its relativity to energy?
Spiritual Counselling is very different and the first Counselling model in the world that is structured upon knowledge from a higher source where there is an absolute knowledge of the human mind.
It is advanced knowledge, and as with all spiritual knowledge presented by the Sphinx Spiritual School of Learning, it is presented in a simplistic, straightforward forward and powerful way of teaching.
ABOUT SPIRITUAL COUNSELLING
Earth works on a haphazard set of rules, other than society's behavioural rules. People are rarely encouraged to discover who they are during childhood. Therefore in adulthood a person's life often goes astray. They have difficulty getting back on track because they don't understand how they are meant to act and react.
Spiritual Counselling provides a framework of values, that are in existence in the spiritual world. The client is helped to discover where their actions and the actions of persons who have caused them difficulty, fits into their framework of values. In turn, this allows the client to make a speedy recovery to resume their life with a more meaningful understanding of who and what they are.
Spiritual Counsellors are trained to have a thorough understanding of human behaviour, the reasons for that behaviour and how it fits into the framework of spiritual values. In using these values to guide that client they quickly allow the client a better understanding of themselves and those around them in their life.
Spiritual Counselling is non-sectarian but works best with those who believe in a higher power in life than man and woman.
Spiritual Counselling Philosophy
Counselling is generally regarded as a method of helping people understand what is happening in their life to give clarity and to find a way forward. This is not always done by addressing either the issue or the repeating issue that has led to the problem.
Conventional Counselling discourages Counsellors from providing answers to clients' problems. Relying on the belief that the Counsellor will lead the client to an 'enlightened moment' showing the client the cause of their problems.
This method is flawed because it takes into account only what is happening at the current time and relies heavily on the client being able to come up with solutions to their own problem. This rarely happens and if it did the client would have no need to consult a Counsellor.
Spiritual Counselling is designed to help people in a very different way. It will set out to trace the behavioural patterns of their origin in life, to give them context, and to offer the person an option to break free of these patterns.
HOW SPIRITUAL COUNSELLING CAN HELP
How Spiritual Counselling Can Help
This form of Counselling will allow the client to understand their own contribution to the issues in their life. It will take them beyond the immediacy of the mind and help them to understand the higher purpose for which they have come to earth this lifetime.
It will assist the client to identify what they need in their life in order to grow and be fulfilled. It will allow an understanding of the reasons for being in the relationships they are in. They can then decide what they want and need to do about their situation.Spiritual Counselling will give people an in-depth understanding of themselves and will clearly show them what action is required to improve their life and the love in their life. Spiritual Counselling is designed to act quickly so that people can experience the joy of discovery of a different way of living. This helps them stop reverting to past patterns of behaviour.
Spiritual Counselling is not for those people who want to remain in a state of pity. It is only for those who genuinely want to improve their life at an emotional level. It is healing, it is helpful, it is concerting and uplifting.

TESTIMONIALS & FAQs
"It is at times shocking to learn the spiritual context to a very human problem, yet acceptance is much easier with the knowledge, and from there to move on with life. In many years of trying different counsellors, I never found a peace about my childhood, just a perennial ‘why?’ During this Diploma of Spiritual Counselling with Pearl, I walked back through every part of my childhood and learned how it underpinned each destructive behavior of my adulthood, fed by the difficulty factor of karma. I got the answer to ‘why?’ and how to move on from being stuck in unfair.
As a qualified Spiritual Counsellor now, it is so rewarding to help a client understand their life with great clarity, quickly moving on with empowerment for change. It is vastly different to traditional counselling geared to survival, this really is the fuel for growth."
"We come in with a blueprint for our lives that gets lost in the layers of accumulated emotional baggage and misguided cultural values and so we lose the real truth of who we are - our perception of our lives and ourselves becomes distorted by unnecessary pain.
Spiritual counselling cuts through the dross to reveal the truth of who we really are, exposing our responsibility for the lives we have chosen and the necessity and importance of ‘just doing it’. As the layers of muck start to break away, the rigidity we have been frozen in releases happiness and joy and a sense of possibility and the recognition of the part one plays in the bigger picture – our lives are not just our own. It is at times painful but very rewarding and has changed my life and continues to do so."
"The spiritual counselling diploma is by far the most challenging course I have undertaken, but has also been the most rewarding. Not only graduating with a diploma, but also moving forward with a new involvement and direction in my life. It provides ongoing guidance through my examination of my behaviors and actions against values and holding myself to account for the person that I am.
I look forward to starting my own practice and being able to share this amazing modality with clients to bring about insights and change if they are willing." Kylie A
"The Spiritual Counselling course gave me great insight into what causes negative and destructive behaviour. Not only did I learn how to identify the real issue but how to help someone heal, change and grow.
The course was delivered with passion by Pearl and clearly, she loves teaching this modality. One of the great benefits of this course is the learning that happens on a personal level. I gained a deeper understanding of my own negative ways and was given the opportunity to counsel a fellow student as well as being counselled.
This was of great benefit for the practice it provided as well as addressing my own issues. This is a course that provides an opportunity not only to gain the skills to help others but an opportunity for great growth on a personal level."
"This course offered me profound insights into myself, my patterns and behaviour. It was life changing as throughout the course, everything was challenged and reviewed through a new lens and with powerful knowledge and insight that is not available elsewhere. You gain such an in-depth understanding of people and what motivates different people to act as they do and the insight to intervene to stop negative patterns and behaviour and create positive change.
This course offers a much more direct, engaged approach to counseling which delivers much faster results. The understanding, knowledge and insight can greatly assist clients. I highly recommend this course for personal development and growth and a powerful, values-based approach to counselling that is ideal for spiritually aware people."
"The spiritual counselling course is a remarkable journey in understanding the origins of human behaviour and why things can go wrong in our lives. Through the course we gained an understanding of ourselves, the good, the bad, why we behave the way we do, what we are here to achieve in this life, and what actions we must take to move forward. Everyone in the course exposes their life - there is no hiding. This is challenging but is also healing.
Pearl delivers the course with passion, directness and honesty, in a safe and supportive environment. It is serious, but there is also a lot of laughter. The personal growth from the course has changed my life, along with gaining the skills to help others." Sue M.
