Personal Consultation

John Rosemond is currently available for personal consultations with parents. If it is impossible for parents to travel to see John in person at his home in New Bern, North Carolina, he conducts consultations by phone (audio only). In the course of a consultation, John does not test, diagnose, or recommend medication; furthermore, although he is a psychologist, John does not employ psychological principles in counseling with parents. His advice is based on biblical principles as well as parenting tradition and commonsense. He speaks with parents only and does not consult with parents if they or the child in question are actively seeing another therapist. John charges by the session, which can last up to 90 minutes. He does not charge by the hour, nor does he charge for relatively short phone calls or to answer short emails in between sessions.

“The Bible contains a clear and simple plan for the raising of God’s children. Imperfect human beings cannot do anything in a manner that even begins to approach perfection, but when it comes to the raising of God’s children, imperfect human beings will do a much better job using instructions provided by our perfect Creator God than they will do using instructions provided by other imperfect human beings.” – JR

I practice with the following restrictions/guidelines:

    • John will not see parents who are seeing another therapist or counselor because of parenting or marital issues, nor will he see parents when the child in question is either currently in therapy or counseling with another professional or on medication for a behavioral issue.
    • I do not accept insurance, Medicaid, or payment from any other third-party payee, and I will not fill out forms from or communicate with any of those sources. Clients can pay directly by check, cash, or credit card (Visa/MC only).
    • Appointments cancelled less than 24 hours prior to the scheduled time will be billed at the full rate.
    • If another professional has referred to me, I will work closely with that professional.

If you are interested in having John contact you concerning a potential appointment, please fill out the form below with only a brief summary of the problem. John will respond within 72 hours.

Hear From Our Satisfied Customers

What a joy it was to host John here at Church of the Savior over these past few days. The numerous positive responses I have already personally heard and the vivid response seen in the number of books sold are a testament to the importance of his ministry. At last count 561+ people heard him speak in his various seminars and close to 1000 people who attended our regular Sunday services heard his important message as well. As youth pastor here at Church of the Savior – and I speak for our Children’s Ministry Director as well – we are excited to see the fruit of his message and teaching over the years as parents put into practice all they have learned this weekend.

Thank you SO much for your advice. Things are going much better. A lot of the drama and stress has been cut down and both kids (2 and 15 months) are happier. I have been praying about it and seeking Godly counsel from a mother in my church who parents the “old school” way. I am all for the old-school way that John teaches, and I have seen it work. I am trying to raise my kids that way. I made two lists and put them on the fridge for when I am too tired to remember. One list has the issues we are working on and then the consequences. The other list has important things written down, such as put God and marriage first, use few words, be confident, don’t let kids frustrate you, etc. These lists and the wisdom you have shared have worked. We are still working on my daughter’s (2 yr) attitude problem but a lot of the other issues are clearing up. She is now totally diaper-free and this morning woke up for the first time totally dry. Thank you so much for listening and giving such good advice.

C.L. (Parent)

We attended one of John’s small-group parent retreats in the Spring of 2019 and it completely changed our family for the better. We had one daughter at the time (who was in the midst of the “terrible” twos), and have since welcomed a second daughter. It is such a relief to no longer be sifting through psychobabble. We watch our friends struggling to potty train 3-year-olds, struggling with children who refuse to sleep in their own rooms, etc., and are so grateful that whenever discipline issues arise in our home, we have tools to get things back on the right track.

“I enjoyed this weekend seminar very much! I came away with a lot to consider and also some very relevant guidance on specific classroom concerns. I found the parenting advice to be clear and concise, and I look forward to implementing the ideas at home and with our parent community.”

“You were direct, informative, engaging, approachable, yet no-nonsense. What you have shared with us will be of real practical help to many people, and I can’t wait until the next time we will hopefully be able to invite you back to Full Circle. Thank you for sharing your experience, time, and wisdom with us.”
