At Music for the Soul one of our primary goals is to serve you by providing quality resources that can help your clients who are struggling with life-challenging issues, and create new opportunities for them to engage more fully in the therapeutic process.Created with the input of Christian therapists, pastors, and Christians who have real life experience with the issue at hand, our resources have proven to be effective in therapy for eliciting an emotion, breaking the ice, overcoming denial, softening a resistant heart, and helping process and reinforce a message
Our CDs, DVDs, and discussion guides are being successfully integrated into therapeutic practice in individual counseling, group therapy sessions, and in conferences, topical retreats and workshops.
We pray they will be a blessing in the life of your practice!
These resources are additional tools in the therapist’s toolbox:
- To help build trust while establishing the therapist-client relationship
- To open a discussion
- To melt walls of defense and denial
- To build a bridge of empathy and understanding between the therapist and client
- To create a safe place for the client
- To suggest as “homework” to encourage journaling
- To offer as a take home piece for continued listening and to help reinforce and retain what is discussed in session
- To be used as stand alone pieces when starting a new group to give participants a sense of direction and hope, and something to work towards
Self-disclosure, when appropriate, has become easier for the professional through the use of these resources. Additionally, sometimes clients find it difficult to read and retain information when they are dealing with issues of deep pain. Often, those who are finding it hard to concentrate on the written can close their eyes and allow a song to wash over themWe encourage you to be creative in your use of the Music for the Soul resources. We often receive feedback from others who have used these materials in new and inventive ways.
Please let us hear from you about new and interesting ways you have incorporated our resources into your ministry or practice, or breakthroughs you’ve had as a result of using these materials.
God bless you as minister and servant.
“Your Music for the Soul collection is the best I have ever heard. The quality of writing and production is exceptional. You have a gift that reaches where most of us cannot go. It is a ministry of unique presence …that enhances one’s ability to remember the message and promote movement beyond intellectualizing and into the emotions where so much healing is needed.”
– Dr. David Walley – Director of The Babb Center, Hendersonville, TN
“Spot-on powerful music CDs and DVDs. Addressing tenderly, yet face-on, issues like grief, cancer, suicide, loneliness, eating disorders, porn and other addictions, these well-produced projects speak healing to the pain we all experience at one time or another in our own families and circles of friends. I would recommend counseling centers keep a supply of these music collections on hand.”
– Gloria Gaither
