Every person experiences stress in the normal course of life.
Stress often develops between people who interact closely with each other, such as husbands and wives, or co-workers. Stress can also be brought on by a major event in one's life, such as the loss of a job, the loss of a loved one, or a failure in school or business. Many people struggle with emotional distress as a result of coping with these problems. They are in urgent need of help. Pastoral Counseling is a process of talking over, in strict confidence, the troubles a person is facing. The counseling is not focused on telling a person what to do, but rather, in helping the person explore the problems being faced, and the options available to resolve them.
