Can I be a good counsellor?
This is a burning question in many people’s hearts. Some feel that they are not good enough to help others or that they are too insignificant.
I grew up knowing that I have a God-given calling to help people, but along the way, I started thinking I wasn't that clever. Now I know that I am unique, and I can help people in a unique way without neglecting who I am.
There is comfort in being a compassionate human being sitting and being present with another human being. The healing power is through the working of the Holy Spirit and as counsellors we can be bridge builders between a hurting soul and God.
You are unique. You have incredible aspects of yourself that allow you to connect to others. On the one side, you can read this book or that book and read this certain article on social and on and on.
You can develop your skills to help others in many ways. Kailo Training Institute trains Christian Pastoral Counsellors to guide people on a journey with a clear therapeutic road map toward wellness and wholeness. Through counselling, you can help people to get away from a problem-saturated way of thinking toward hope and healing.
At Kailo Training Institute we teach you to define helping and healing. We train you to use the Bible as your handbook and to utilize skills that are tested and practised over many years. In the training, we help you to explore the importance of your traumas and biases and fears. You didn't have to have all the answers. After all, who called you to do this work?
This is not just a call for Expressions of Interest. There is a 20-question-quiz available if you wonder whether you can be a good counsellor. You will have to create an account for access to the quiz and the results. The link to the free QUIZ.

The team at Kailo Training Institute is committed to supporting learners to complete their studies successfully. We have first-hand experience of the challenges experienced by adult learners, especially the multi-vocational scholars.
Although the programs are presented online and learners can work asynchronous and at their own pace no one is left to struggle alone. The lecturers are seasoned facilitators who arrange weekly online contact sessions with the learners.
The lecturers are involved in the preliminary interviews, the selection process and coaching during the studies and practical work.
The learners receive a grid with all the modules they have to complete and there are additional models to assist with practical aspects such as writing skills and research methods.
Even though learners can work at their own pace, there are milestones that they have to reach to ensure that their studies will be completed within the contracted timeframe.

Kailo Training Institute is expanding to offer a Counselling School and a Bible school for people who dream about developing their knowledge to minister more effectively to people. Our learners are motivated by a God-given calling to leave no one in pain by ministering to people.
The training programs are well-structured courses with a clear road map of what a learner needs to master in a specific year. There are also modules to help learners understand academic language and requirements that are a value-added benefit.
Learners who are selected for the master’s programs have to work towards a thesis in a given format. Your thesis is a report that tells the story of your research journey. Your supervisor’s role is to help you to translate this story into a language that is both accountable and understandable to others. (Dr Barbara Louw)
