Christian Counseling in Round Rock

Christian Counseling in Cedar Park

What is Christian Counseling?

Some people of the Christian faith often want to know that the person counseling them comes from a background with good understanding of biblical scriptures and principles. Certainly many people of any given faith may prefer to do therapy with a counselor who has a more intimate understanding of their beliefs and lifestyle. This sometimes allows this type of client and their counselor to go to deeper levels in their communication and formulate treatment plans that are more customized to contain elements of their faith.

It is most important to know that it should never be the purpose or procedure for a Christian counselor to indoctrinate nor judge the client. These counselors are also absolutely not a replacement for pastoral care. Christian counseling is just another element to help a client feel more comfortable in the therapeutic process.

Treatment Approach for Christian Counseling

Christian Counseling in Cedar Park and Christian Counseling in Round Rock can be individual counseling or with couples. Christian counseling is a supplement to traditional counseling in that the therapist identifies what issues you are facing and what goals you have. These problems can be related to depression, anxiety, communication or other issues. They do not have to be a crisis of faith. The therapist then openly discusses biblical principals along with traditional therapies, such as creating strong coping skills. In the first session it is important to discuss with your counselor what goals you have and identify that you would like to involve biblical principals or are open to prayer.

Benefits of Christian Counseling

  • Involvement of Biblical Principals
  • Confidential avenue for discussion
  • Create positive behaviors
  • Manage emotions
  • Prayer

Here are some thoughts our counselors have on both individual and marriage Christian counseling.
