(Formerly Grace Counseling Services of Winter Haven)

How Christian Counseling Works

Christian mental health counseling is a ministry under the spiritual gifts of helping and encouragement which integrates psychological concepts with biblical truths to help people overcome mental and emotional concerns. It recognizes the importance of a client’s faith as part of their healing and recovery process.

Christian counseling can be provided by religious leaders or licensed mental health clinicians (i.e., psychologists, social workers, mental health counselors or marriage and family therapists). Those providing Christian counseling should have either a certification or graduate level (masters’ degree) education in Christian counseling that prepares them to be culturally competent in faith-based issues.

Christian counselors can address the following mental health conditions:

  • Grief and loss
  • Relationship issues
  • Spirituality and faith concerns
  • Anxiety, worry and fear
  • Depression
  • Substance abuse and addiction
  • Trauma
  • Parenting challenges
  • Low self-esteem/low self-confidence

Christian counselors may use the following strategies as part of the therapy process:

  • Prayer
  • Scripture
  • Bible study
  • Forgiveness
  • Gratitude
  • One’s identity in Christ
  • Self-love and acceptance
  • Ethical values and behaviors

The staff at Grace Hope Counseling of Florida recognize the importance of faith in the therapeutic process and are trained to practice Christian counseling for clients who want to integrate their Christian beliefs with their mental health process.
