Kosovo: Agape Change Counseling

Providing clinical counseling, career counseling, and professional counselor training for transformational development in Kosovo.


The Agape Change Counseling center provides individual counseling to people struggling with difficulties in mental and emotional health as well as training seminars in professional counseling interventions. There are a number of challenges that have faced Kosovars since the end of the war in 1999. Post traumatic stress, high unemployment, unforgiveness and resentment, limited educational resources, and the breakdown of family structures in Kosovo contribute to increasing levels of anxiety, depression, addictions, suicide, and divorce. The center provides a safe place for people looking for a change in their lives.

In the past year, Agape Change has provided professional training to church leaders and psychology professionals with workshops in Play Therapy, Basic Counseling Skills, Dialectical Behavioral Counseling, Renewing of the Mind (CBT and Scripture), Psychological First Aid, and Marriage Counseling.


  • Pray that the Agape Change Counseling Center will be a place where people who are hurting can experience the love of Jesus through skilled counsel.
  • Pray for an Albanian Christian who can intern under Lisa Ramsey.
