About HIM Counseling Services

HIM Counseling Services provide an alternative to traditional face-to-face counseling at a time when traditional methods are inaccessible, inconvenient, or not preferred. These services are conducted via telephone and online.  These forms of counseling may be a useful alternative for people unable to make it to a counselor's office, who live in a remote area, have a disability, have limited time constraints, or would like to get an idea of how counseling works before seeing a counselor face to face.

HIM Counseling offers an alternative method of communicating with a counselor by telephone and email. These forms of counseling can provide an ongoing dialogue between you and your counselor providing support, and over time, offer you an opportunity to share your concerns, ask questions, and possibly gain further insights and understanding into the issues that you are experiencing.

Advantages and Limitations

Telephone and online counseling has both advantages and limitations. Often times distance may prevent people from being able to access a counselor in person. Also, busy and hectic lifestyles may make it difficult to schedule and keep appointments.  Or perhaps you would simply like to see how counseling works before seeing a counselor in person.

One limitation of telephone/online counseling is the absence of a face-to-face relationship where body language and facial expressions can be seen and tone of voice heard. Telephone/online counseling is a rather new method of providing counseling and if you are uncertain, please feel free to seek face-to-face counseling.

HIM Counseling is not psychotherapy but rather pastoral and Christian counseling. It is important to note that telephone/online counseling cannot and is not intended to replace face-to-face counseling. Telephone/online counseling is not a substitute for traditional face-to-face counseling but rather provides an alternative approach.

Also, there are issues not suitable for telephone/online counseling and issues that cannot be resolved without an ongoing therapeutic relationship. Telephone/online counseling does not offer quick fixes and is not suitable for everyone; however, if you are comfortable the use of the telephone and/or with communicating via the internet and e-mail, then this type counseling may be a good place to begin exploring your issues.
