Why do we utilize temperament understanding as a counseling/coaching model?
The temperament model is researched and proven step-by-step process developed by the National Christian Counselors Association. It is founded on the truth that God created each of us with a unique temperament with strengths, weaknesses, and needs.
Are you outgoing or more introspective? Are you fast paced or slow paced? Are you a born leader or a follower? Are you moody, creative, or fearful? Are you a spender or a saver?
By identifying your unique, God-given temperament and temperament needs, you can learn ways to meet those needs which are conducive to the Holy Scriptures, bringing healing and balance into your life and relationships. Understanding your unique temperament is the foundation in the coaching relationship to help define God's purpose for your life and help establish the pathway to fulfilling that purpose. Temperament understanding is a springboard to uncovering other issues an individual or couple may be struggling with as well.
Temperament understanding easily pinpoints areas of trouble, challenge, or needed change and assists in developing a workable plan for improvement consistent with the Holy Scriptures.
Understanding one’s unique temperament also allows insight into career planning, marital fulfillment, family unity, and other areas of life where spiritual coaching and guidance would be fruitful.
When you find yourself feeling discouraged, overwhelmed with life, living in turmoil, confusion and not experiencing inner peace, it is your soul that is in distress. Your soul is where your temperament is positioned.
