These days, Christian counseling offers traditional therapeutic techniques applied with an emphasis on Biblical and spiritual teachings. Christian therapists may be, but are not always, Pastors though many are affiliated with a specific church or parish. This type of therapy isn't for everyone, but if visiting a Christian therapist is something you're considering, here are some terms you should be familiar with.

  • Addiction counseling - This type of drug and alcohol counseling seeks to find the spiritual causes behind the addiction.
  • Couples counseling - Oftentimes Christian couples counseling is done in a group setting over the course of weekend. It can be, but is not always, part of the premarital counseling process.
  • Depression counseling - While Christian based depression counseling uses the Bible as a guide, it does not completely discount modern treatment methods such as prescription drugs.
  • Family counseling services - In the Christian setting, family counseling involves getting the family back to traditional roles, which usually emphasize the leadership role of the father.
  • Premarital counseling - Many denominations require newly engaged couples to complete pre-marriage counseling with a pastor before getting married in the church. This is designed to ferret out any problems in the marriage before they have time to take root.
