Spiritual counselling is one of the most widely practised spiritual healing services available in the world.
In 2016, a group of Australian Jews sought out spiritual counselling through the website The Faith Community Service in Wellington.
They had an opportunity to meet a number of well-known spiritual counsellors who were willing to share their expertise in the spiritual healing process with them.
While the group had some questions to ask, they also had an offer of spiritual guidance that was more than they could handle.
The group travelled to Wellington and met with Dr Robert MacMillan who was the director of the spiritual counselling service at The Faith Centre.
“I wanted to get him to see the real problem in my life and not just a few problems that I was dealing with,” the group’s spiritual counselor told The Faith, adding, “He was very understanding, he was very sensitive, he knew what he was talking about and he helped us get through some of the problems we had.”
The group then travelled to Perth to meet with the spiritual therapist Dr John Ransom.
Ransom was one of New Zealand’s most well-respected spiritual therapists and spiritual healers, who was known to have a wide network of spiritual support in the country.
The spiritual counseller said that Ransom’s experience with his patients was one he was keen to share with the group.
“He really opened my eyes and I could see how much my world had been blown out of proportion.
I was really looking for a change of scenery and he was a huge help to me,” the spiritual counseller said.
Dr Ransom has worked with a number, such as Jules Kowalski, who had multiple sclerosis, and the spiritual counselor Dr Richard Stansbury who was also a renowned medical doctor.
“When I met Dr Rabin I felt that he was an amazing man, and I felt he was one who could really help me and others, and that was really inspiring,” the counsellor said.
“If I had been in his shoes I would not have been able to do what I do, and if I had not been in the position I am now, I don’t think I would be able to get out of this.
The truth is I would have had to quit my job.”
The Spiritual Counsellor’s experience at the Faith Community Centre was different from Rabin’s experience, as he said that the spiritual therapy services in the city were a lot more relaxed than Rabin would have been in a different setting.
“It’s different in the way you interact with people, because I am not the type of person to be in the presence of someone for a long period of time and I have to get myself together mentally to do that.
The next step for the group was to meet up with Dr Michael Siegel who was an expert in the treatment of multiple sclerosis. “
So I feel like there is a real difference between the type that you get in the centre in the States, and what you will get in an Australian centre,” he said.
The next step for the group was to meet up with Dr Michael Siegel who was an expert in the treatment of multiple sclerosis.
Siegel has been in Australia for more than 15 years and is one the country’s foremost experts on the treatment and recovery of multiple myeloma.
“This is a very different type of spirituality,” Siegel told The Truth, adding that the healing experience in New Zealand was unique.
“There is a lot of healing that is going on and it is all about the body. “
The healing is much more focused on the mind, the spirit and the body,” he told The Trust.
“There is a lot of healing that is going on and it is all about the body.
I think that is a key difference in New York because of the way we heal the body, and in New England it is a whole different kind of healing.”
The spiritual counselling group’s next goal was to make contact with the therapist who had done the healing for the family of Jules.
The counselloring group then returned to Perth and met up with the same spiritual counserveer.
“We did an appointment, and he gave us a referral to see him in person, and we did the appointment,” the psychotherapist said.
