About Us

It is the mission of our pastoral care ministries to be the hands and feet of Jesus to a hurting world around us. There are many people going through a difficult time who need love and support.  What better way for them to receive care than through a Christian Counseling Center.  I am so excited about how God is going to bring forth healing in people’s lives who come in for counseling.  What a difference a Christ centered approach to therapy will make in someone’s life!  Truly, helping someone who is struggling emotionally and mentally with a Christ centered focus will bring forth a deeper intimacy with God.  Weddington Christian Counseling Center is going to be a Light House of His light!  A wonderful blessing for all!

-Rev. Ed Briggs,  Weddington UMC Minister of Pastoral Care

How can therapy help?

Therapy can be an effective treatment for mental and emotional challenges. Therapists are professionally-trained listeners who can help you get to the root of your problems, overcome emotional challenges, and make positive changes in your life.

You don’t have to have a mental health diagnosis to benefit from therapy. Many people in therapy seek guidance for everyday concerns: relationship and  job stress, or self-doubt. Others turn to therapy during difficult situations, such as a divorce or loss of a loved one.

What can I expect?

We hope to offer a safe, non-judgmental space of therapy where you can begin to discover your core resiliency, strengths and create awareness for integrating healthy coping and communication skills. We will make every effort to bring our professional skills to each session to enable you to find solutions for your specific concerns. Because of our Christian perspective, we offer therapy that stems from our belief in acceptance, compassion and respect for each person. You will not feel pressured or obligated to believe a certain way, but it is important that you understand this worldview informs our approach. Our therapists are credentialed to practice in North Carolina. We look forward to working alongside you, equipping you for transformational growth.

 

Confidentiality

Everything you say to your therapist will be held in the strictest of confidence. North Carolina law protects the privacy of communications regarding mental health treatment between you and your therapist. Should you desire your information to be shared with your health care provider, we will supply the appropriate forms for you to fill out with your signature.

 

Emergencies

The therapists at WCCC are not on call. We do not have specific access or privileges at any hospitals. We will do our best to respond to emergencies but we do NOT provide 24-hour coverage. If you or a family member have an emergency, please call 911. There are services available that provide rapid response and follow up access to psychiatric help.
