”Marriage counselling aims to promote understanding and collaboration among family members in order to solve the problems of one or more individuals."
NAME provides “Nouthetic counselling (Greek: noutheteo, to admonish) is a form of pastoral counselling that holds that counselling should be based solely upon the Bible and focused upon Christ. It repudiates mainstream psychology and psychiatry as humanistic, radically secular is fundamentally opposed to Christianity. The Baker Encyclopedia of psychology and counselling states that “The aim of Nouthetic Counselling is to effect change in the counsel by encouraging greater conformity to the principles of Scripture.”
