How Does Christian Counseling Differ From Any Other Type of Counseling?

Christian counseling focuses on combining a client’s faith with various counseling/therapy approaches.Christian counseling draws from biblical teachings to promote mental and emotional health. Christian counselors will incorporate scripture and its teachings to offer guidance when you’re facing challenges or crises. Sometimes the integration of faith with therapy may be the missing piece in finding successful treatment. A Christian counselor can offer therapy in ways that respect your faith.

Are You A Person Of Faith?

For those whose faith is an important part of their life, any struggles or difficulties are not only emotional/mental health concerns, but spiritual ones as well. You want a counselor who not only acknowledges that, but understands, supports and addresses it in your therapy sessions. You want someone who can relate to you and to your deep faith. For people of faith, there’s more to life than just getting through it. You’re also on a spiritual journey, so to speak, and as such you’ll have the usual challenges and hardships along the way. When our emotional AND spiritual health are in sync, we’re in a place where guidance from a faith-based perspective can help us weather those tough situations and even grow stronger because of them.

Is Your Spiritual Health Is As Important To You As Your Mental Health?

At Thriveworks Blacksburg, we have a respected and experienced Christian Counselor on staff. We understand that Spirituality is more than just your religious beliefs or what church you attend – your faith involves a connection to God. Spiritual wellness includes your faith, the principles you subscribe to, your ethics and values, and of course, your morality. One’s spiritual well-being may include:

  • Self-care and reflection
  • The ability to love and be loved
  • Compassion
  • Forgiveness
  • Community service
  • Personal fulfillment
  • Ministering to others
  • Experiencing and spreading joy
  • Identifying and helping those in need

At Thriveworks Blacksburg, our Christian counseling option prioritizes your faith as an important part of the healing process. We’ll take a look at the issues that come up in your life, and in our Christian Counseling setting, you can heal, grow, and move forward – all while incorporating your faith in the process.

What Can Christian Counseling Help With?

In this fast-paced, often secular world, one can get out of touch with their faith as the demands and stresses of daily life close in. BUT, this is the time that we need our faith more than ever! Our Christian counselor understands what you’re going through, and can help you to reconnect with their faith even while addressing the emotional and mental health issues you may be facing as well. Our Christian counselor is available and experienced to help with the following issues and more; all while enriching your faith and connection to God:

  • Marital or relationship problems

  • Grief and loss
  • Personal goal setting and development

Would YOU Benefit from Christian Counseling?

Everyone can struggle with issues like grief or marital problems, but when a person’s suffering is more than they can cope with on their own, they will display signs that they need help. You may already have a strong basis for your faith, but counseling centered around biblical teachings may be a turning point in helping you overcome your mental and emotional distress.
