Quotes from Ryan:
“Think of counseling as healing. So it’s often like resolving something in the past to make the present better. Think of coaching as growth. So often it’s helping somebody who has a vision or something they want to achieve or helping somebody who’s stuck in an area of life and helping them move forward from there.”
“A real common misconception is that counseling is just about truth telling and so it’s about giving someone the right information and then they change because you have this ‘special training.’ It’s much more about the relationship. It’s about two people being authentic and being real and letting each other in at a real depth.”
“I would highly encourage pastors to get into relationships and to invest in relationships. Not just with their wife and kids, but somebody outside the church. Just somebody completely different that they can just be real with.”
