When your mental health is stressed, your spirituality struggles too. As Christians, we turn to God when life gets tough. He’s our backbone, the essence of our happiness, and the one we choose to seek each and every day. God provides us the strength we need to overcome life’s obstacles. But what happens when we have trouble finding our internal source of strength?
“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see if, but because by it I see everything else.” –C.S. Lewis
Christian counseling concentrates on blending a client’s faith with various counseling/therapy approaches. At Thriveworks Bethesda, our Christian counselors use scripture and prayer to help offer guidance when you’re facing life’s struggles and strains. One good thing about Christian counseling is that you don’t have to question whether or not your counselor will respect your faith. Your counselor will have the same beliefs and desires as you do.
If you reside in the Bethesda or Montgomery County area and you are looking for a Christian counselor, contact Thriveworks Bethesda today. Give us a call at (240) 513-3093 to schedule your first appointment or to learn more.
What Issues Can Christian Counseling Help Me Overcome?
As busy as life can be, it’s easy to get caught up in the everyday demands and stresses of life. Sometimes, this can pull us away from our faith. When things get rough, we should lean on our faith to guide us. However, sometimes hardships drive us further from our faith than we would like to admit.
At Thriveworks Bethesda, our Christian counselors understand what you’re going through, and help you reconnect while working to address the emotional and mental health problems trying you as well. Christian counselors are trained and equipped to help you conquer whatever life struggles you are facing. In Christian counseling, you can address the following issues and more:
- Grief and loss
- Learning disabilities
- Relationship issues
- Struggles with addiction
- Family dynamics
At Thriveworks Bethesda, our Christian counselors are ready to help you tackle whatever it is you’re facing while drawing you near to God and his plan for you.
Could I Benefit from Christian Counseling?
In our modest opinion, we think that everyone could benefit from counseling. Everyone reaches a point in life where supplementary direction can come in handy. Maybe you haven’t reached a point in life where you feel overwhelmed by daily stressors. If that’s you, it’s not too early to start building your skillset. Of course, we hope you never face harsh realities, but that’s not always the case. Being prepared ahead of time could help you prior to this breaking point.
You may already feel strong in your faith, but counseling sessions centered around Christianity could help you overcome your mental and emotional hardships. Your relationship with God, like your relationships in life, are ever-growing and everchanging. The more time you spend on developing your relationships, the better off you’ll become at:
- Forgiving others and yourself
- Loving others and accepting love from others
- Spreading happiness and kindness
- Selflessly helping others
We all have room for growth. Christian counselors work hard to provide the platform to facilitate that growth and change. At Thriveworks Bethesda, our Christian counselors strive to help you achieve optimal spiritual health.
