Christian Counseling Services in Westborough, MA—Christian Therapists

Faith is a pillar in many people’s lives. It gets us through pain and strain; it serves as our compass when we aren’t sure where to turn or which path to walk. No matter what we have going on, we can always count on our faith to be steadfast.

Now, sometimes we lose sight of this. We fall out of sync with our faith—we stop going to church, praying before bed, and saying grace at the dinner table. We forget about the relationship that we spent years building with God. And then, when we enter troubling or tough situations, we don’t think to turn to God or our faith. We forget that it is there to lean on. And we struggle exponentially as a result.

Difficulties and obstacles are God’s challenges to faith. When hindrances confront us in the path of duty, we are to recognize them as vessels for faith to fill with the fullness and all-sufficiency of Jesus. –A.B. Simpson

Christian counseling serves an important purpose: to assist people through these troubling and tough situations, utilizing the power of faith, one’s relationship with God, as well as techniques in therapy. If you have fallen out of synch with your faith and you are burdened with mental health challenges or other life issues, you might benefit from talking with a Christian counselor. Better yet, you might benefit from starting a relationship with a Thriveworks Counseling in Westborough Christian counselor! We have appointments available now. To schedule with one of our Christian providers, just contact our office by calling (774) 377-4939.

What Are the Staples of Christian Counseling?

Christian counseling is a mental health services that we offer our clients, which uses a combination of traditional, effective psychological techniques and Christian practices. At our Thriveworks Counseling in Westborough office, we know that religion can play an important role in one’s life. In fact, research shows that finding solace in one’s faith can help them to better withstand stress and other ailments.

When you first meet with your Christian counselor, they will want to first understand a few key things:

  1. What has brought you into counseling?
  2. What do you hope to get from counseling?
  3. What does your relationship with God and your faith look like?
  4. How are you hoping to grow in your Christian faith?

Your answers to these questions can help your Christian counselor better understand how they can create a plan that will benefit you. For example, if you are confident in your relationship with God and are simply looking to gain insight from another member of the Christian faith, they will take this into consideration as they approach your treatment.

How Do I Know If I’m a Good Candidate for Christian Counseling?

Christian counseling doesn’t just focus on helping you grow with or learn from your faith. It’s there to help you work through and resolve issues that are negatively affecting your whole being. For example, you might be experiencing:

  • An anxiety or depression disorder
  • Symptoms of an eating disorder
  • The residual effects of trauma
  • Relationship issues or a breakup
  • Addiction or substance use problems
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Stress (at work or home)
