INNOVATIVE CHRISTIAN COUNSELING  FROM “THE STREET”

Why is it good to help these dear military members and families of.

The Dept. of Defense own studies reflect that at over 20% of returning troops will suffer from P.T.S.D., Homelessness or poverty.  Your mission is to encourage and educate veterans on what their potential entitlements may be and to apply for those benefits. You wont be alone and the wilderness is vast.


One of the challenges in the field of coaching is upholding levels of professionalism, standards and ethics. To this end, coaching bodies and organizations have codes of ethics and member standards. However, because these bodies are not regulated, and because coaches do not need to belong to such a body, ethics and standards are variable in the field. Launched in February 2016, the Association for Coaching (AC) and European Mentoring & Coaching Council (EMCC) have created a single, Global Code of Ethics (GCoE) for the entire coaching and mentoring industry. Individual, associations, bodies and organizations are being encouraged to become signatories to it.



Counseling of this type can be used by military veterans to adjust to the transition from military life to civilian life. Any veteran that was discharged under honorable or general circumstances in the United States typically has access to services, such as veterans counseling, regardless of their ages or ranks. Even today, veterans that served in all different wars - from World War II to the recent Middle Eastern conflicts - seek the services of veterans counselors. Counselors in this field also usually provide services to families of military veterans as well.



Coaching is a form of development in which a person called a coach supports a learner or client in achieving a specific personal or professional goal. The learner is sometimes called a coachee. Occasionally, coaching may mean an informal relationship between two people, of whom one has more experience and expertise than the other and offers advice and guidance as the latter learns; but coaching differs from mentoring in focusing on specific tasks or objectives, as opposed to general goals or overall development.


Professional coaching uses a range of communication skills (such as targeted restatements, listening, questioning, clarifying etc.) to help clients shift their perspectives and thereby discover different approaches to achieve their goals.[5] These skills can be used in almost all types of coaching. In this sense, coaching is a form of "meta-profession" that can apply to supporting clients in any human endeavor, ranging from their concerns in health, personal, professional, sport, social, family, political, spiritual dimensions, etc. There may be some overlap between certain types of coaching activities.

An excellent example of the problems that veterans face can be illustrated by Vietnam combat veterans, who are often still battling a number of demons, even today. However, many of the problems that these veterans face are an indirect result of their treatment - and lack of treatment - once they returned home from the jungles of that distant Asian country.


During most of the major wars and military conflicts of our time, returning soldiers and veterans were often treated with the utmost respect. These veterans were often greeted with open arms upon their arrival, and parades were even organized in their honor. Unfortunately, soldiers returning from Vietnam were rarely regarded as heroes. Instead of being greeted with hugs and parades, they were often greeted with spit and angry chants of “baby killer”. Combined with the lack of veteran services, this hostile “welcome” made it more difficult for Vietnam veterans to readjust back into civilian life. Although some overcame these hurdles and went on to become functional and generally well adjusted members of society, many struggled with such things as mental illnesses, which made it hard to make the transition. In fact, of the millions of homeless Americans today, some studies have concluded that anywhere from a quarter to almost half are Vietnam veterans.



Professionals in this field also usually offer marital and family counseling services, since military service can strain close relationships with loved ones. We will often try to work out problems between veterans and their loved ones during these types of therapies, for instance. They will also try to educate a veteran’s loved ones on the struggles ahead as well as how to help their loved ones cope.



Counseling does not just stop at mental and emotional health issues. We work closely with veterans, military personnel and their families, in order to help them with all sorts of problems during and related to readjusting to civilian life after military service.  A we also sometimes act as an advocate for benefits, homelessness and jail for veterans, military personnel and family members. This may involve helping them secure employment or fill out paperwork for veterans benefits.

Life coaching is the process of helping people identify and achieve personal goals. Although life coaches may have studied counseling psychology or related subjects, a life coach does not act as a therapist, counselor, or health care provider, and psychological intervention lies outside the scope of life coaching.


Christian coaching is common among religious organizations and churches. Christian coach is not a pastor or counselor (although he may also be qualified in those disciplines), but rather someone who has been professionally trained to address specific coaching goals from a distinctively Christian or biblical perspective.
