Biblical Counseling

Biblical CounselingHow does Biblical Counseling Work?

Much Bible based counseling is based on reflecting upon the nature and character of God as described in the Bible. Experience the transforming power of God’s word by experiencing what it means that YHVH “Keep in perfect peace those who’s minds are steadfast because they trust in you.” Isaiah 26:3

Have you been struggling with issues for longer than you care to admit? Learn to identify negative thought patterns that are crucial to how you feel, act and relate to others. Learning to replace negative, ungodly thoughts with God’s truth is one of the keys to behavior change…

As a person’s mind is transformed we are better able to serve and worship God in greater measure. God’s word tells us that serving and worshiping Him is what we were created for…it is our destiny!

Serving and worshiping God is the only thing that truly satisfies our souls. As our mind is transformed we are released from overwhelming anxiety, depression and hopelessness. Through the transformation of our minds we will experience more happiness, joy and satisfaction. That’s the goal of Biblical counseling.

Additionally, a Biblically oriented therapist will help you discover and understand more about your true purpose in life. Understanding the reason you were created, is crucial to your sense of life satisfaction.

Through counseling based on the Word of God, couples will learn to love and understand each other better. This understanding flows first from a knowledge of your Creator’s intentions for your marriage. Additionally, in counseling, you will learn to improve communication and resolve conflicts. It’s all part of the process of developing a great marriage.

The process of Biblical Counseling involves:

  • Education about the attributes of God, how God works in our lives, and what it means to be created in His image
  • Learning and applying new skills based on scriptures
  • Identifying and repenting of sin
  • Rejecting ungodly ways of thinking and behaving
  • Working through issues of woundedness and forgiveness
  • Learning to trust more in Him rather than others or ourselves

Reason to Rise – Workbook for Women

A Christian Program in Depression Recovery

This Workbook provides Christian Women with comprehensive and practical information and activities that are grounded in biblical truth and science.

Participants in the Reason to Rise program said…

This program is manageable, clear, and do-able. Most importantly, it addressed the spiritual issues with grace allowing me to find peace. Reason to Rise gave my family back their mum and wife.

Everything you can possibly think of is covered in this program, but it is designed so you don’t get overwhelmed ..the understanding, the gentleness, the challenges makes you want to get better.

The homework questions allowed for reflection and encouraged me to take ownership of my journey towards health by identifying all the areas I needed to focus on.

Psychologists who use this resource say…

Reason to Rise is a comprehensive recovery program that includes current neuropsychological understandings about depression as well as cognitive and behavioural strategies to assist clients to reengage with life and know that recovery is possible.

~ Kathryn Allison (Clinical and Counselling Psychologist) MAPS

Having used the Workbook in my practice, I believe Nandi has integrated the best of science, evidence based psychological practice and theology. This powerful resource is a ‘must have’ for any Christian Psychologist’s tool box.

~ Ruth Waterworth (Registered Psychologist) works in a Christian School and in Private Practice.
