Care + Sydney Counsellors

Where to find help in times of need?

We are here to help you navigate life’s challenges

When you’re going through a hard time we’d love to walk with you, especially as you seek professional help.

When you become a Christian life does not automatically get easier. Sometimes it gets harder. The world we live in is a hostile and broken place, and we are damaged and broken people.

As Christians we are called to bear one another’s burdens. Sadly, the comfort and support friends and pastors are called on to provide has been largely outsourced to professionals. We don’t think it should be. And so, when you’re going through a hard time we’d encourage you to both talk to someone in your community group or your pastor, at the same time as seeking professional help.

Here are some helpful resources:

Domestic Abuse

In any group of people, including churches, there will be people who unfortunately have experienced abuse – whether through family growing up, a previous or current relationship, or seeing a friend experience a controlling or abusive partner.

Keith and Sarah Condie, Co-Director’s of the Mental Health & Pastoral Care Institute, presented on this important issue at Vine Church. This presentation shares how we can recognise signs of physical, emotional and other forms of abuse, and respond well. In their talk, the Condie’s referred to Safe Ministry Resources – available here
