Christian Counseling: What Is It? Who Is It For?
Christian counseling, otherwise known as biblical counseling, incorporates both one’s Christian faith and important principles of psychology. It aims to help people improve their overall mental health and work through their life challenges. This form of therapy uses both scriptures and teachings from the bible to help the individual better deal with their stressors.
When in the middle of a particularly stressful or otherwise difficult time in life, turning to one’s faith can prove to be just what the doctor ordered. In other words, our faith can help to remedy the hard times we are going through—say, in the midst of a tough loss; when we’re encountering problems in our relationships; when we’re experiencing an overwhelming amount of stress at work. This list goes on. The common denominator is the “medicine”: Christian counseling, as it can prove to help people through a myriad of issues.
Keep in mind that no matter what it is you’re going through, the Christian Counselors at Thriveworks Peachtree City will keep one important goal in mind: to help you live better, while also empowering you to follow God’s teachings.
What Are Some Other Goals of Christian Counseling?
As we just mentioned, Christian counseling can prove helpful in many different situations. Therefore, the goals can vary from person to person, depending on their unique situation, needs, goals, and so on. Here are some common goals of Christian counseling, of which you might be interested in:
- Working through marital issues: When two people get married, they make a commitment to love each other for the rest of their days. Now, that doesn’t mean that they won’t encounter problems throughout their time together. If you and your spouse are stuck on a particularly troubling problem, you’re failing to communicate properly, or you’re experiencing another marital issue, a Christian counselor can help. Our Thriveworks Peachtree Christian counselors will guide and support you as you work through your marital issue(s); they will also help you to better prepare your relationship for working through future conflicts.
- Better managing mental illness: Depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, bipolar disorder, addiction. If you are exhibiting symptoms of any given mental illness, a Christian counselor at Thriveworks Peachtree City can help. They will dig into your specific symptoms and come up with a plan that will help you better manage these symptoms and your illness as a whole. They will also offer endless support as you learn to navigate through this particularly challenging time. Additionally, they will remind you that you are a child of God, and therefore, you are strong.
- Grieving the loss of a loved one: Perhaps the most painful experience we will endure in our lifetime is the loss of a close friend, family member, or pet. If you have recently lost someone close to you, the Christian counselors at Thriveworks Peachtree are here to help you confront all of the difficult emotions that might come with your loss as well as guide and support you as you accept the loss and your life without the loved one lost.
These are just a few scenarios in which Christian counseling can prove beneficial. Also, there are many more goals one might have for their time in Christian counseling, depending on what they might be going through or what they need assistance with.
