What is Christian counseling?
Christian counseling and psychotherapy implements traditional philosophies and techniques from counseling and psychotherapy as well as Biblical principles and theology from a Christian perspective. Christian counseling and psychotherapy emphasize and encourage adherence to Biblical principles, Christian spirituality and the Christian way of life. Christians who may be struggling with emotional difficulties, mental health problems or relationship issues will not only receive professional therapeutic assistance for those issues but, will also learn how to manage or overcome them in a way that is congruent with their Christian belief system.
Christian counseling and secular counseling share similar desires to assist people in overcoming their problems. They both strive to help people find meaning and joy in their lives and to become healthy and well-adjusted individuals both psychologically and emotionally.
