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.

a gay man. I came to him crying everyday and mopey, and by the end I had really seen a huge change in my overall mental health. I was not in the area for very long and he was excellent at making sure I got as much as possible from my limited number of sessions. I would absolutely recommend him to people in their early twenties struggling with their transition into adulthood as well as anyone struggling with general anxiety and depression. jó, én hiányozni fogom!
