Psychology and Counselling
We provide assistance to clients in relation to a broad range of mental health presentations and general life problems. CLS Counselling is a Psychology Practice with emphasis on personalised care, and quality of service. Services are available at our counselling centres and online.
Christianity and Psychology
CLS Psychologists have the necessary understanding and experience to help address the particular counselling needs of Christian and non-Christian clients. Psychological bodies are increasingly recognizing the influence of different religious and cultural backgrounds on counselling and clinical work, including evidence-based treatment.
As described in the psychological and diagnostic literature, religious and cultural belief systems contribute to every aspect of client functioning including interpretation of experience, symptoms presented, and even treatment choices and perceptions of psychological care. A respect of religious client belief systems more fully informs assessment and treatment formulations; it provides the safety sought by our Christian and other clients, and enriches the counselling process providing the necessary understanding of each client and their specific needs.
