Starting Christian counseling

What is Christian counseling?

Christian counseling in Waltham 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.

Christian Counseling Help in Waltham, MA—Christian Counselors

Andrew has been dedicated to his Christian faith since he was a young boy. He’d attend church each and every Sunday with his parents; he volunteered to help at Bible School throughout the year; he never missed Christian summer camp; and he was present at every other church event, too! Andrew’s Christianity has always been a huge part of his identity. However, as he’s gotten older, he’s had less time to spend at church and connect with God. He feels guilty about it and yearns to devote that time to his faith again. Also, he’s been struggling with a load of stress and problems with his girlfriend lately. He wishes there was someone who could help him find his way back to his faith and also resolve the current challenges in his life. Fortunately, there is!

Christian faith does not involve repressing one’s anxiety in order to appear strong. On the contrary, it means recognizing one’s weakness, accepting the inward truth about oneself, confessing one’s anxiety, and still to believe, that is to say that the Christian puts his trust not in his own strength, but in the grace of God. –Paul Tourrier

Have you found yourself in a similar situation to Andrew? We are happy to tell you that there are professionals who come from a Christian background, who are dedicated to helping people work through life challenges using both therapeutic techniques and staples of the Christian faith. Better yet, Thriveworks Counseling in Waltham, MA has Christian counselors who can meet with you as soon as today or tomorrow, if you’re ready to begin Christian counseling now! To schedule your appointment, you can simply contact our office. We look forward to it.

How Can Christian Counseling Prove Valuable to My Life?

Christian counseling is very similar to traditional counseling. The main difference, however, is that the counselor integrates Christian beliefs, teachings, prayer, and other staples of Christianity. Now, in both cases, the counselor’s primary purpose and goal is to help you, guide you, and support you however they can.

Your Thriveworks Christian counselor will determine which therapeutic techniques and biblical lessons might best benefit you, based on what you’re going through, when/how you fell out of step with your faith, and so on. While they customize treatment for every new client, you can expect them to utilize the following in some degree:

  1. Biblical lessons and teachings: As we’ve already touched on, it is likely that your counselor will incorporate lessons and teachings from the Bible to help you work through the challenges that are present in your life. This will prove to help you better understand how you can approach these hurdles and will also provide you with renewed strength.
  2. Traditional therapeutic tools & techniques: Also, your Christian counselor will certainly utilize effective therapeutic tools and techniques to help you manage your relationship issues, stress, symptoms of mental illness, or whatever specific challenge you might be encountering. They might utilize staples of talk therapy and/or cognitive behavioral therapy, as these approaches to therapy prove to help people in many different scenarios.

If you choose to partner with one of our Christian counselors at Thriveworks in Waltham, know that you are in good hands. Personalized mental health help is so important, and we always tailor this treatment to the individual. In order to do this, your counselor will ask you questions like: “What has brought you into Christian counseling?” and, “What are you hoping to get out of this relationship?”
