As a Christian counseling ministry and Not a professional mental health agency/practice, we should not be expected to conduct our counseling ministry exactly as such. Moreover, we cannot turn anyone away just because they are not able to donate to our ministry. Counseling is Christ-centered where biblical-based pastoral counseling and spiritual life coaching is available.  The counseling ministry services are free but I ask for a seed/donation of $35 or more hourly to help with the ministry. We just ask for support if possible. You can submit donations below.



Get your confidence, self-esteem, zeal, ambition, determination, motivation, and life back! Listen! I want you to seek God and allow Him to awaken those dreams, passions, talents, gifts, and visions that many of you have laid aside and forgotten about. Somebody has given up on themselves because of fear, lack of confidence, low self-esteem, and the lies of the enemy that can have a crippling affect on your well-being. These issues have hindered, delayed and prevented you from prospering in your God-given purpose, mission, living in the liberty that is found in God! On this website you will find Encouragement, Support, Christian counseling, Healthful tips, and the ‘Word of God’ as medicine/nourishment for your soul, mind, body and spirit.

We (Ministry team) at Healing for Your Soul Ministries and other support services are here to usher you into the presence of God for yourself. Because it is written in the scriptures: (Philippians 4:19, KJV) But my God shall supply all of your need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
