The professional practice of spiritual health is the assessment, therapeutic relationship and interventions provided to help people with their spiritual growth, healing, and well-being.

“Helping people draw upon their own cultural, spiritual and religious resources for wisdom, guidance, strength and healing as they journey through life stages.” (Canadian Association for Spiritual Care). 

The health-care experience may raise questions around meaning and purpose in life and how to sustain faith and hope, especially when you’re faced with illness or life-changing events. In such times it can be good to talk with a spiritual health professional who is clinically trained to support you spiritually and emotionally through your experience.
