A Christian Counsellor should always be equipped with strong knowledge of both the secular and the Christian Counselling skills and techniques. In the field of "Child Development", we need to understand how children grow, learn and process information (cognitive development) at different ages and stages. From Maria Montessori to Jean Piaget and Howard Gardner, we have to understand learning styles and multiple intelligences, as well as study skills, in order to provide efficient help in Counselling. Building a deeper understanding of child development, will always help a Counsellor water a child's mind with the Healing Word of God!
