Client Intake Client Intake Guidance AgreementThe following outlines several conditions upon which counseling cases will be initiated. While this is not meant to be exhaustive in scope, it does represent our philosophy of biblical guidance. Framework – We believe that the Bible provides thorough guidance and instruction for faith and life. Therefore, we base our counseling on Scriptural principles rather than those of secular psychology and psychiatry. We are trained or licensed as psychotherapists or mental health professionals, nor should we be expected to follow the methods of such specialists. Focus – Our purpose is to deal with issues within the scope of biblical parameters. We are confident that the Bible contains all necessary information for life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3). There are no problems between persons that the Bible fails to address either in general or specific principles. While our guides do not pretend to know all that there is to know about biblical teaching and its application to life, nevertheless, they do know much, they will counsel from their understanding of the Bible, and they will do their utmost to help you. If you have significant legal, financial, medical, or other technical questions, you may choose to seek advice from an appropriate independent professional. Our Prerogative – At any time during the process, for reason(s) sufficient to him/her, the counselor shall have the option of terminating counseling. Commitment to Confidentiality – Confidentiality is an important aspect of the guidance process, and our guides will carefully guard the information you entrust to them. To ensure that you are receiving consistent counsel and support, however, the guide(s) will need to be able to discuss your situation with others such as appropriate leaders of the church you attend, your attorney, if you have one, and/or other individuals involved in your life. Information disclosed in guidance sessions will be held confidential to the extent that the guide believes the Bible, or the State requires. Absolute confidentiality is not Scriptural; for instance, matters of church discipline (cf. Matthew 18:15ff), or criminal incidents, may require the guide to divulge information to others. Your Commitment to Confidentiality – You too must agree not to discuss our communications with people who do not have a necessary interest in the guidance process. Furthermore, you must agree that you will not attempt to force any guide to divulge any information acquired during the guidance process or to testify in any legal proceeding related to the issues discussed during the guidance process. It’s Important to note that we are not bound to any government licensing regulatory system. This means that our soul source of authority is God and the guidance He provides in his Word. We are in no way responsible for the results of the advice given. The contract created with the payment provided is for the time we spend together, not for the advice provided or the results of said advice.
