Many people have issues that they are unable to deal with on their own and need counseling. For most people, especially in Ghana, the first place of call is the church. Most priests and pastors are already overburdened with pastoral responsibilities and therefore have little time to offer true counseling.
Juniper Tree can serve as a referral facility where people can have true Biblical pastoral care and counseling. People in the medical profession such as doctors and nurses frequently encounter people who are emotionally traumatized. Patients with chronic and terminal illness need emotional counsel that a doctor or a nurse who has to attend to an average of 50 patients in a day, simply cannot offer. They too need a place to refer patients and trust that they will receive good and informed care and counsel.
