What Are Our Graduates Saying About Formation Therapy?
"For almost twelve years, I have pursued education and qualification in counseling and psychology through various colleges and ministries. I never, in spite of all that work, was able to feel as if I were equipped to actually help anyone in a solid and tangible, permanent way.
That is no longer true because of the God-given light I have encountered through the teaching of Dr. Ray Vinson...through (his) teaching, I have found freedom and stability....because of that, I have a new qualification by which I may help those who come to me.
I respectfully then toss aside any letters after my name, for the qualification I have found in Dr. Vinson's teaching. "
N. Jennings, B.S. Psyc., ... Qualified by Truth
"I have worked as a Mental Health Clinician, Substance Abuse Counselor and Family and Marriage Counselor. I have practiced secular psychology methods for years, and have always wondered if there was more I could do for my patients.
It wasn't until I took Dr. Ray Vinson's course in Fundamental Counseling that I realized what I was missing. What Dr. Ray teaches deals with the real cause of the problem.
I wholeheartedly recommend and endorse Dr. Ray Vinson's teachings and Fundamental Psychology methods."
