What is Soul Healing?

Soul Healing  is an evidence-based model and approach to emotional health and wellness founded by Joshua Peters Smith that focuses on bridging the gap between faith and mental health. Soul Healing merges theories and approaches of psychology and theology to help individuals renew their mind, overcome life’s issues, heal from past traumas and live emotionally healthy, whole and free.
