COUNSELING INTENSIVE

Contact us to arrange a date that suits you.

This week long intensive is an opportunity for couples or individuals desiring heart-focused, Jesus-centered pastoral counseling.

Each Intensive will consist of 4 two-hour private sessions (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday). Sessions are available in the morning and afternoon, and will be facilitated by living well's pastoral counselor, Jonathan Trotter.

Intensives provide a unique opportunity for those who simply want to pause, reconnect, and grow in intimacy with God and each other, as well as those in crisis. It is also our desire that Intensives will make help and healing more available and accessible to those living outside of Phnom Penh.

Get in touch with us to arrange a week that suits you. Sessions can be booked for the morning from 10am to noon or for th afternoon from 2pm to 4pm. The cost for the whole week is $200 for non-members and $160 for members of living well or our partner organizations.

What people are saying…

  “I loved the intensive counseling sessions! I loved that there was time to process and pray each day after the sessions. It allowed time for everything from the counseling sessions to sink into my heart and mind without typical everyday distractions. God's love was tangible during those few hours that I stopped and wrestled with my issues in the Lord's presence. During my intensive sessions, I felt true healing of hurts from childhood, and I walked away feeling whole, loved, forgiven, and empowered.”

  “We joined the counseling intensive not in crisis mode or because we were stuck. I wanted to go through it because I thought we needed help with our communication skills. We knew going in it was only a week but with our busy schedules it was exactly what we needed. A week carved away for just us. To look into each other’s eyes and truly see one another. We walked away from our experience actually seeing one another for the first time in a very long time. We gained practical tools and insight in how to value one another. I’m very grateful we said ‘yes’ to the counseling intensive. We highly recommend it!”

  "Counselling Intensives, though only four sessions, solidified my healing over the past four years.  God used my counsellor to speak truth in my life in mighty ways. My counselling intensives have ceased, but my healing journey continues because The Lord goes with me."
