THE SUNFLOWER ICON

Sunflowers are a symbol of loyalty and constancy. No matter where they are planted, sunflowers will tilt up their faces and follow the sun across the sky.  When the sun sets, sunflowers will tilt down only to lift up their faces yet once again towards the sun the next day. The petals of the sunflower resemble the rays of the sun, beaming warmth, joy and hope. This bright, nourishing and energetic disposition of the sunflower serves as a metaphor to the purpose and intent of Counsellors – we seek to charge a positive energy that inspires hope, healing and restoration.

 

HOPE, HEALING & RESTORATION

Hope
ECTA aspires to instil hope in our Interns by providing them with an opportunity to fulfil their dreams and passion. Following the training offered, our Interns and Graduates will in turn inspire hope in their Clients.

Healing
The education offered at ECTA takes our Interns on a journey of healing from within, and this personal experience will enable our Graduates to explore with their Clients this same healing process during their counselling sessions.

Restoration
ECTA believes that restoration to one’s physical, spiritual, psychological and emotional well-being is the key to holistic growth.
