Eve Center Services at the Care Center
May 29 @ 10:00 am - 8:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Monday, repeating until December 18, 2023
The Eve Center is a community of women devoted to promoting hope, healing, and growth for women through biblical, no cost, safe and confidential peer counseling and training.
One of our trained and compassionate Volunteers will meet with you weekly, for about an hour, to promote hope, healing, and growth in a safe and confidential environment.
Issues often covered include, but are not limited to: Anxiety/Stress, Abuse(Emotional, Relational, Sexual, Spiritual), Anger, Boundaries/Codependency, Fear, Feeling lost or confused, Grief, Guilt/Shame, Loneliness, Pregnancy Loss (Abortion or Miscarriage), Difficult or Unhealthy Relationships, Self-esteem, and Spirituality.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The peer counseling session is not a “chat” session over coffee or hanging out with a friend. Real change takes place when the client applies the action steps discussed in a session coupled with God’s grace, mercy and love.
Peer counseling moves a woman from hopeless, stuck, guilty or grieving to a position of hope, structure, resolve, control and peace. Prayer is offered to but not required of any client.
Action steps are often gently ‘required’. These may involve working through a book study one on one with your volunteer peer counselor. It may be outlining a new way to respond to a certain person or scenario and then taking the hard step of trying it out.
No matter what, we are here through ‘the good, the bad and the ugly’ without judgment. Eve Center believes each woman has the internal strength to see necessary change, learn what change she has control of, to plan for healing and to move –with support – to that place. We see it happen over and over and over. So much so that many of former clients now have trained to be volunteer peer counselors.
