What is Christian Counseling?

Christian Counseling, in a basic sense, acknowledges that a person’s faith plays a vital role in the healing of emotional or behavioral problems. Therefore, this type of counseling intentionally seeks to make faith a significant part of the “treatment” process. In whatever problem is faced, Christian Counseling acknowledges that Jesus Christ can powerfully work in our lives to bring about healing and relief.

What is the difference Between Christian Counseling and Secular Mental Health Treatment?

For many years, psychological researchers and behavioral scientists have come to understand that emotional problems like depression, and anxiety are caused by multiple factors. From years of research, they have developed best practices that outline a holistic approach for dealing with emotional or behavioral health issues. Preferred treatment guidelines for mental health practitioners now address multiple sources of problems such as the biological, psychological, and social functioning of the individual. Most recently, psychological treatments have also begun to acknowledge that spirituality should also be a focus of the healing process.

At its best, mental health practitioners encourage their clients to engage this holistic process of addressing emotional problems (paying attention to biological, psychological, social, and spiritual factors). However, in secular mental health settings faith can often be ignored, or marginalized as clinicians are sometimes uncomfortable with the concept of faith. Worse yet, some organizations or individuals will seek to integrate a generic “spirituality” that directly contradicts a Christian’s faith and the teachings of their church.
