Garden City, NY (PRWEB) December 05, 2013
NAPW honors Sandy Welfare as a 2013/2014 Professional Woman of the Year for leadership in lifestyle coaching with this prestigious distinction.
“I work with women who have been part of a loving church family but who have not been dealing with life issues because they feel they have no place to turn for sound, affordable christian guidance,” says Ms. Welfare. After years of working in pastoral counseling, Ms. Welfare became dissatisfied with the lack of effectual counsel given to emotionally abused women in church organizations headed predominately by males.
In January 2013, Ms. Welfare decided to use her own well-rounded expertise and listening ear to facilitate the training of pastors and give women a place to turn when counseling is not required. As life coach and pastoral care minister of her business, NOT Counseling, LLC, Ms. Welfare utilizes her primed gift in working with people to provide healthy solutions to women battling emotional abuse and co-dependency. Certified in trauma and abuse counseling, she facilitates NFL Groups for Women (Not Feeling Loved) and teaches relationship skills to women who lack intimacy and connection with their partners. Most importantly, Ms. Welfare follows her deep-rooted passion for giving women the tools needed to change their relational styles using sound christian principles.
Ms. Welfare is a successful speaker at women's conferences on the topics that she has worked so earnestly to master and also devotes time teaching church leadership teams how to improve counseling methods to women by using sound biblical concepts.“My biggest accomplishment is owning my own business and seeing lives change as a result of the work I do. I have also raised two wonderful young women to make healthy relationship choices and own their own faith," she says.
