For hundreds of years the Church in Europe provided the spiritual and soul care. Out of this the humanistic tradition came forward. Now we have psychotherapists with a humanistic value system who serve both Christians and non-Christians. We have noted how there is among traditional Church people a hesitancy to go to a humanistic therapist. This school attempts to reach those people within their basic Christian culture value system, at the same time adhering to the latest scientific thinking.
The overall approach of the school is Integrative Psychotherapy from a Christian perspective. The integration concerns emotional, cognitive, volitional, behavioral, relational, biological, physiological, and religious dimensions, and it builds on scientific work and experience of various psychotherapeutic schools and Christian associations, e.
Theories first and second years are mainly from the Psychodynamic Theories and Motivational Interviewing, Third and Fourth years are Behavioral and Cognitive Theories followed by Narrative and Systemic theories, Trouble Shooting and at last integration of all theories.

The approach of the school is close to other integrative and holistic approaches. The aim is to bring therapeutic effects, that is to relieve dysfunction, not to try to convert clients to Christianity — which in the latter case also would be an unethical conduct. Our aim is psychotherapy.
The Christian approach is an added value and does not replace psychological knowledge. The school acknowledges that there are different emphases within the various Christian counseling traditions, and recognizes that some Christian approaches are more at ease than others in drawing on insights from secular theory and practice.
An example of our coherent method can be seen in the integrative model by McMinn and M. Toward a Comprehensive Christian Approach.
Theoretical as well as theological dimensions are integrated. The theoretical dimension consists of main trends in contemporary psychotherapy and scientific work — like psychodynamic, cognitive, behavioral, systemic, humanistic, existential, narrative, and neurobiological approaches. The theological dimension is especially expressed through the concept of Powerful Peace PP in abuse counseling. PP is introduced in theory and practice and is at the same time both an attitude and a method.
It is based neurobiological and uses the approach of attachment theories and narrative therapy. It is possible to use in any form of psychotherapy. It is important for the therapist to be prepared and trained to offer and integrate the spiritual dimension in the help they provide. For more information see: T. This approach can be identified as a cultural sensitive approach.
It is very much linked to the concept of therapy as a dance, rather than as confrontation William R. Survivors of serious trauma are often locked in a world of their own. To help clients to become peaceful is seen as a necessary prerequisite for the possibility to change, based on Christian principles.
Powerful Peace is taught throughout all the years and will become more integrated as the students learn how to understand and use the different psychological theories they will learn.

Traditional counseling involves a broad perspective that enhances learning for transformation and integration of sociocultural values that are peculiar to each human society.
