Christian counseling is an effective method of employing positive healing and growth from both past and present life circumstances so that you are able to fully move forward with an inside out, effective change. Use of scripture and prayer in the counseling process, along with application of psychological theory, helps ensure a well-rounded approach to progressive healing and ultimately positive changes in your life.
Mental health, according to the Bible begins with a true knowledge of God and the knowledge of who you are as His child. Satan can undermine your health simply by distorting either one of these perspectives by creating confusion, chaos, fear, doubt, anxiety, anger, depression and a host of other mental and emotional distresses.
Functioning as a well rounded, whole being includes physical, mental, emotional and spiritual components, so it makes the most sense to also explore the spiritual aspect of your present condition when seeking answers.
Secular counseling takes a long time to draw out all of the intimate details of past and present history, and the more that is exposed, the more you feel vulnerable and frustrated. Trying to give you positive affirmation without Jesus Christ is nothing short of encouraging you to continue trying to pull yourself up by your own bootstraps. All the counseling theories in the world can have some benefit or some quick fix, but without adding the theology of resolution, aka the cure of the soul, your mind and life will recycle over and over with no permanent resolution.
Christian counseling has that advantage over secular counseling. Following only the plan of theory and secular counsel makes clients a product of their past leaving the inner person, the soul, untouched and unhealed. Christian counseling encourages hope through healing the inner person, renewing that which is old (past) and going forward in that which is changed, renewed and healed (2 Corinthians 5:17).
