Christian Counseling Benefits: Is It Right for Me?
Christian counseling can help those who walk in the Christian faith to reconnect with God and lean on him as they work through their specific life challenges. Here are a few benefits that one might enjoy in Christian counseling:
- Their counselor’s shared Christian values and devotion to God: If you choose to work with a Thriveworks Jacksonville Christian Counselor, you don’t have to wonder if they share in your faith. You can feel confident that they share your Christian values and are, too, devoted to God.
- Empowerment to walk in God’s light and trust His plan: Christian counselors understand that staying on the right path doesn’t always go according to plan. Your counselor will listen to your woes and help to steer you in the right direction again. They will remind you of God’s plan and also utilize his guiding principles to help you.
- Pursuit of a higher goal and purpose: We all enter counseling with our own needs and goals. For example, one individual might pursue counseling because they are feeling depressed or anxious, while another person might seek mental health help because their marriage is hanging on by a thread. Whatever the case, your Christian counselor will help you work through your problems. They will also have a higher goal in mind for you, which is to bring you closer to God.
- True healing and growth: Finally, your Christian counselor will help you find true healing and growth throughout the counseling process. We know that you might feel hopeless right now, but there is always hope. We are here to instill that hope in you again and help you find that healing you’re looking for.
These are but a few of many benefits that you might find in Christian counseling. Truly, our Christian counselors care about their clients and want to help them walk closer to God. If you think that you could benefit from starting a relationship with one of our Christian counselors, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
