How Does a Christian Counselor Help You?
Christian counseling is a form of therapy that uses biblical principles to help people overcome their problems. Our Christian counselors understand that Jesus Christ has a lot of wisdom about human nature, marriage, and family, and they incorporate these teachings into your sessions to bring about growth and change.
Our Christian counselors also believe that we are uniquely created by God and that we can rely on Him to help us. They recognize that the Bible, not psychology, is the final authority.
Biblical counselors understand that Jesus Christ and the Bible contain a wealth of practical knowledge about human nature, marriage, and family, among other things. These pearls of wisdom are included in your sessions to help you grow and change as a person.
What You Need to Know About Christian Counseling
A biblical understanding of how we’re made, as psychological, physical, and spiritual beings, means all three of these dimensions play an important part in our health and happiness. As Christians, we believe we are spiritual beings with a soul (our mind, will, and emotions), that lives inside a body. Christian counseling takes all this into consideration when defining your goals and what you want from therapy.
“May God himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together- spirit, soul, and body- and keep you fit for the coming of Jesus.”
- 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24
The right Christian counselor is someone who you feel comfortable talking to and who understands your relationship with God. They should also have training in how to help people with issues like yours, as well as a good track record of helping people overcome similar problems.
