The Hope Alive training is only offered to pro-life, pro-family Christians who are dedicated to fulfill Christ's mandate to heal and spread the good news. Thus every counsellor must sign and adhere to the Mt Joy Statement of Faith, My Declaration for Life ethical statement and the Commitment to Professional Conduct.

We offer Hope Alive training in residential
setting as well as training courses conducted in various parts
of the world.
The Need for Counsellors
There is an overwhelming need to treat those who are disturbed by intense emotions and handicapped by deep conflicts resulting from unresolved losses and abuses. It is estimated that 40-70% (depending on which country) of women and men by the age of 45 have been directly involved in at least one abortion. Approximately 20% of the population is estimated to have experienced childhood mistreatment.
In North America it is estimated that 50%
of children have had an aborted sibling and are abortion survivors.
Thus, each year approximately 200 million people worldwide are
newly damaged by abortion and childhood mistreatment. They may
be able to keep up a facade, but quickly fall apart with serious
physical or psychiatric illnesses in times of crisis. You are
invited to explore training with us if you are able and interested
in a unique
treatment program with proven effectiveness.
Hope Alive counselling is conducted as a consulting practice accepting referrals from physicians, pastors, priests, psychologists, social workers and other appropriate professionals. Each potential counsellee is carefully evaluated and may or may not be accepted for counselling.
