Christian counseling is very different from secular counseling. Christian counseling rises to another element. Christian counselors are able to take it to another level, because they base all their practice on a Biblical approach. Secular counseling tends to be based off of the latest psychological developments/findings, or newest societal norm.

The reason secular teenage counseling is failing, is due to their methods of practice. Their two main objectives are constantly changing, which makes it hard to get to the root of a problem, because what it comes down to is stereotypically labeling an individual into a standard. Standards are continuously shifting. It makes it hard to really understand the teens morals. And most importantly, it lacks the ability to recognize the motives behind an individual’s decision making process.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 says, "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."

Christian counselors distinguish that the Bible has a lot of practical wisdom about the nature of a human being, marriage, the anatomy of a family, and fleshly struggles. Using Biblical concepts implement learning how to hold yourself accountable. Indeed, Christian Counselors often use skills from the secular psychology field, but above all, they apprehend the Bible is the ultimate authority. Christian Counseling Centers focus on helping individuals apply Biblical Truth to everyday life. When the Truth is believed, known, and followed, the Truth will set you free!
