Title:
An exploration of the impact of counselling/psychotherapy on pastors’ leadership
Authors:

Abstract:
The purpose of this research is to examine ‘in what ways, if any, can counselling/psychotherapy have an impact on pastors’ leadership’. This study attempts to provide the reader with information on why and how the research question was developed. It examines the theory behind the study, including definitions and gives an overview of the literature on counselling/psychotherapy with reference to pastors and leadership, especially Christian leadership, and to the milieu in which pastors work. The benefits and drawbacks of counselling/psychotherapy are also examined. The phenomenological approach, with particular reference to Giorgi’s method, was chosen for the study after examining a number of different approaches and models. Explanations are also given about the rationale of the study, the selection of the participants, ethical considerations, the pilot study and the interviews. The data, including both the individual and general analysed text are given followed by the findings and their implications as providing answers to the basic question of the study. The findings of the research study are examined to see how far they provide answers to the research questions and implications of the findings from the study are given in relation to their application to pastors in leadership. In addition recommendations for further studies are proposed.
