Spiritual Counseling and Fear – Counselors and Therapists in Franklin, MA

How does fear differ from anxiety? Where anxiety is our response to internal events, fear is a response to an external event. Fear can be detrimental when it keeps us from doing what we need to or when it keeps us from accomplishing that is important to us.

But, while we usually think of fear as a negative emotion, can it ever severe a necessary function? How does it affect our spiritual life? Does it draw us away from God, or can it ever serve to bring us closer? And what do the scriptures mean when they say, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge…”?

The attached link is from a course taught by Dr. Handel, a licensed psychologist and ordained minister. In this teaching, Dr. Handel does an examination of scriptures with actual case studies that illustrate how fear can either be a detriment in our spiritual journeys or, at times, can aid us in our journeys as well.

At Thriveworks Franklin, there are therapists who have studied the effects of fear on us spiritually, physically and mentally. If you are struggling with fear, or emotions in general, a therapist at Thriveworks Franklin may be able to help you. So, call Thriveworks Franklin at 617-360-7210 and make an appointment today.

Opened a New World of Healing

★★★★★
I can't speak any more highly of Thriveworks. Mikkah has truly been such an important person in my life since ...Read more

I started coming to therapy. I was skeptical at first, knowing that "the first therapist you see may not be the right 'fit' for you," but I was lucky enough to have immediately clicked with Mikkah. It took a bit of time for me to really open up and start to dig deep in my own emotion, but Mikkah was so patient and made me feel so comfortable. She truly has helped me identify a lot of different things I was feeling, but couldn't understand why. I originally came to therapy for adult ADD, recommended by my PCP, but I used therapy as a healthy outlet to start talking about things I have experienced that has caused my mental clarity to fog. Mikkah has truly been such a savior in my life and I can't express my gratitude I have for her. She is extremely professional but makes me feel so comfortable talking about literally anything - almost like we've been best friends for years, even though I just met her a few short months ago. I am so happy with how my therapy is going and I always leave a session feeling better than how I went in. Thank you Thriveworks and thank you especially to Mikkah! You are incredible!!
