Is it okay for Christians to go to counselling?
Yes! Grace forgive sins and “love can cover a multitude of sins”, but there are learned behaviours that we have to understand and also unlearn. The scriptures say that “fathers eat sour grapes and the children’s teeth are set on edge”. At the simplest this means that children are affected by their parent’s behaviour. Learned behaviour can be unlearned.
There are other times that people experience being hurt in churches. Church hurt can cause incredible probelms in people’s lives; I can offer spiritual direction and guide you in your relationship with God. I also offer consultation to groups,churches regarding Conflict Management, Teamwork, and Organizational Change.
Problems can move us towards God and enable us to experience His grace and truth in our lives.
