Christian counseling as in other counseling but the tools used in the process may be different. How exactly the incorporation of spiritual beliefs into the counseling experience will function may vary from client to client and from therapist to therapist. Christian counseling is a form of supportive therapy that I utilize in conjunction with medication management for clients who identify as Christian. Christian counseling combines tenets of Christian faith with the principles of psychology to improve your mental health and relationships.
One of the aims of Christian Counselingis focusing on the care of the whole person, body, soul and spirit, and maintaining the values taught in the Bible. Christian counseling aims to help people regain a sense of hope for their life that is found in Jesus Christ. Christian counseling is centered around helping others achieve a better understanding of themselves and God which is rooted in the Holy Spirit’s conviction. Christian counseling seeks to make people aware of the immense worth and value they have as a person to God.
The ultimate goal of Christian counseling is to help Christians identify and become more accepting of God’s will – even when it’s not their will. Christian counselingunderstanding of the bible as a guide to life. This is accomplished through the use of faith-based principles and supportive instruction to help people better manage and/or resolve any issues in their lives. More specifically, I not only assess, diagnose, and treat mental illnesses, I also teach clients coping skills, so they can better adjust to any changes that may occur in their lives
