For Men, Women, and Teens
With Mental Health Problems
Speaking with a Christian counselor before things progress can make a huge difference for an individual. If you or a loved one is showing warning signs, do not hesitate to find help. People tend to lead busy lives full of distractions, so it can be hard to take time to read the Bible, pray, and reflect on life. Loved ones often feel uncomfortable sharing everything with relatives, and friends may not have the wisdom to counsel. Who will they go to for a listening ear when they feel hurt or anxious or need something? A Christian counselor can offer a safe place to be heard.
What Can Christian Counseling Do?
Christian counseling can mean many things, such as advising, setting goals, or identifying psychological problems. It usually means resolving conflict and restoring relationships with people. When you look for a counselor, find someone who integrates faith into the counseling process. Don’t assume all counselors claiming to be Christian are devoted to Christ-centered work.
How are Christian Counselors Different?
While Christian counselors, sometimes called pastoral counselors, may use methods from psychology with their clients, they have access to an entirely different approach. A Christian counselor will evaluate a believer’s thought patterns against the principles of scripture and carefully point out areas of disobedience. These counselors can help your loved one apply biblical truth to everyday life, providing specific verses and Biblical principles that speak directly to your loved one’s needs. A biblical approach also gives insight into the motives behind a loved one’s actions.
Secular counseling is frequently much less effective because its standards to identify difficulties shift constantly. Without a biblical basis, secular counseling lacks an absolute standard against which to compare people. Instead, it uses societal norms or psychological research, which change along with the culture.
