Q: How much does Rhema Wherehouse charge?

Q: Does Rhema Wherehouse take insurance?

A: Since we offer our services at no charge, insurance isn’t necessary.

 

Q: What’s the difference between coaching and counseling?

A: The major difference is that coaching identifies the problem and finds the solution in a very short time with goal setting, quick intentionality and accountability. Coaching also focuses more on the future, whereas counseling focuses heavily on the past, works on pathology, and giving diagnosis; it is usually more long term. We suggest that people utilize both depending on their situation and needs. Both are different, yet highly effective if done with intentionality and transparency. Coaching is for someone ready to be encouraged and equipped with tools to move forward.

 

Q: How long does it take?

A: Of course every family and individual is different, but coaching usually takes 5 to 6 weeks.

 

Q: Who will be helping me? How is my coaching assigned?

A: When you call Rhema Wherehouse you and your family will be assigned a Certified Christian Life Coach.

 

Q: Will my process be confidential?

A: Yes. Confidentiality is important at Rhema Wherehouse, because we want to honor the sensitive information you share. We do not take your trust and transparency lightly. 

Q: Can I come by myself?

A: You can come as an individual, as a couple or as a family. We also allow some sessions to be alone and some session to be with family you may want to invite into parts of your coaching.

 

Q: What should I expect?

A: The sessions are very informal in order to create a comfortable atmosphere. You will be in an office room with just you and your coach, either one-on-one or a family group. You will be reflect, share, write and apply wat you are gaining. There will be times when simple homework activities are given to help your process. Each session should last no longer than an hour. 

 

Q: Is there anything Rhema Wherehouse doesn’t do?

A: Yes. We do not handle court mandated counseling. We do not work on pathology or prescribe drugs of any kind.

 

Q: I am not a Christian, can I still come for services?

A: Of course! There are universal truths that help heal hearts and we share a lot of these at Rhema Wherehouse.

 

Q: I would like to give back to Rhema Wherehouse, how can I donate?

A: As a non-profit, we graciously encourage donations. You can make a donation at our main office in Fort Worth or via our website here.

Q: What if I don't have a babysitter? Can I bring my children?

A: We would prefer that you come by yourself so you can zone in, but we understand that sometimes we have to be flexible. Depending on the age of your children, we do have a children's play area for your child to use during your session. The play area is located in the same room (off to the side) so that you can see you children safely playing.

Q: What about COVID-19? How are sessions taking place?

A: We are following all safety precautions. Sessions in person will require that a mask be worn at arrival, temperature will be checked and seating will be spaced out for proper social distancing. We also offer virtual sessions for those who feel more comfortable meeting that online.
