Starting Christian counseling

What is Christian counseling?

Christian counseling in Cumming is a form of faith-based counseling that utilizes psychological and spiritual techniques to guide and support. Often, Christian counselors often incorporate prayer and scripture-reading into treatment to help practicing Christians work through their challenges.

How does Christian counseling work?

Christian counseling works by focusing on themes of hope and healing through one's faith. At Thriveworks, your Christian counselor will discuss Christian values and relate them to your unique struggles. You can expect to discuss the following with them:

  • Your Christian identity
  • Your relationship with God
  • What the bible says about your current challenges
  • How you can overcome your struggles in a way that aligns with your faith
  • How to channel your religion in a way that helps you heal

Is Christian counseling conducted in person or online?

Christian counseling at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and via Online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Christian counseling last?

Christian counseling can last for a few weeks, months, or longer. It depends on what challenges the client might be working through, the severity of those challenges, as well as other needs or preferences.

When times get tough, we often feel lost and struggle to find something to grasp onto to pull ourselves out of the rut. For those who practice building strong Christian values, it can be powerful to turn to your fellow worshipers for the support and guidance you need. Christianity can provide someone with happiness, fulfillment, and stability. However, sometimes the challenges we face can be harder to tackle on our own than we think.

Faith is unseen but felt, faith is strength when we feel we have none, faith is hope when all seems lost. –Catherine Pulsifer

At Thriveworks Cumming Counseling, we believe that therapy should have a holistic approach to care, taking the mind, body, and spirit into consideration. That’s why we offer Christian counseling! We have ministry-professional counselors that practice with a biblical foundation. This service combines your faith and the principles of counseling to improve your overall mental health and relationships while also building a stronger bond with you and God. To schedule an appointment with one of our counselors, call our office at (770) 224-7008 or book online.

Can Christian Counseling Help Me?

During difficult times, it is important that we turn to God to ask for support and guidance. Although, that does not mean that we can’t turn to counseling when we need a little extra help. Asking for help does not make you or your faith weak. Turning to Christian counseling will help you build a stronger relationship with yourself and God in a judgment-free zone.

Our Thriveworks Cumming Christian counselors can help you with many different regions of life. They are here to assist you with working towards an overall better state of being in your personal life, in turn creating stronger bonds with your most important relationships.

How Does Christian Counseling Work?

Turning to one’s Christian faith or spirituality has proven to help them overcome obstacles in their life. Here at Thriveworks Cumming Counseling, we believe that it is important to consider one’s faith and religion when designing a unique treatment plan for them. Our Christian coaches will take your faith, wants, and needs into consideration when crafting the best approach for your care. They are not only experienced but have the skill set necessary to combine your faith with the principles of psychology. Your counselor will use a combination of:

  1. Prayer
  2. Biblical teachings
  3. Education and support
  4. Therapeutic techniques to help you make decisions
  5. Coping mechanisms for serious life events

The use of the combination of these areas will help you build up your spiritual and mental health. Working with our Christian counselors will help deepen your connection in your faith, morals, and values. If you are struggling and you are of the Christian faith, consider working with one of our Christian coaches at Thriveworks Cumming Counseling. Studies show that those who practice a strong religious faith live happier and longer than others. This is just another reason why we offer Christian Counseling opportunities here. We want you to know just how devoted we are to helping you live a happy and healthy life.

Mental health is a profession that requires high integrity and strong moral character. Mental health professionals must demonstrate the ability to make sound moral decisions for themselves and for their clients. Having known and work with Cynthia Armstrong for nine years I can unquestionably say that she possess and consistently exercise these qualities. She is an exceptional and loyal team member that is always eager to provide support and share professional knowledge with peers. She is always reliable, responsible and extremely respectable. Ms. Armstrong patient and practitioner relationships are based upon therapeutic alliances. Her professional knowledge, competence and skills as paramount as she is constantly abreast of current treatment modalities through continuing educations and training.

I have worked with Nichole for about two years and experienced the impact she has had on peoples lives. Such a kind person, and really makes you feel comfortable and non-judged. It’s hard to find someone who you are comfortable talking to and just being a co-worker of hers, I found myself looking forward to our talks.
