4 Tips for Finding the Right Christian Counselor
If you are struggling with something in your life you may be interested in getting help from a qualified Christian counselor. But located the right counselor for you and your situation can sometimes be challenging and frustrating. Most of us arent aware of the counselors that are available in our local area.
Because it can be an intimidating process, knowing where to start looking is a huge help. Once you know how to find and choose a counselor, its usually possible to find the right one in an area that is accessible to you.
Today we will cover some of the best methods for finding the right counselor for you.
For those who attend church, the pastor can be a great resource. Many pastors offer counseling services to people of the congregation who may be in need. However, most pastors will not have the experience to deal with all situations. In these cases, the pastor may do what they are capable of, and refer other people to counselors in the area.
In situations where your pastor cannot help you, there may be someone else on the church staff that can help, or they may have a great referral for you to a local counselor. If this is the case, youll probably feel more comfortable with the counselor knowing that he/she was referred by your pastor.
Starting with your church is a great decision because you may find out that the church has resources you were not aware of. Even if this is not the case, someone will likely be able to refer you to a good counselor.
Dont forget to pray for Gods help in finding a great Christian counselor! Take a few minutes every day to ask God to lead you to the right person that can help you with the issues that you are facing.
You may be surprised at how many people you know have seen a counselor at some time in the past (or present). If your situation is something that you feel comfortable sharing with your friends and family, consider asking them if they know of anyone that would be a good fit for your situation. If your friends and family have seen counselors before, they may be able to provide you with a good referral.
If your search is not leading to any referrals from people that you know, the internet is also a great resource that can provide plenty of information. To find a counselor that is close to you, do a Google search for Christian counselor and include your state or town. This should lead you to at least a few pages that can help you. If you search for directories of counselors you will find several that allow you to search by zip code to find one in your area.
