I have recently begun studies for my masters degree in Counseling. I intend to obtain my degree and counsel form a biblical perspective. I am writing my first research paper on what the function of a counselor is. I would like to get some input from the general public on how they perceive counselors who use a Christian perspective. I would also like to get input from professionals about journal articles pertaining to this topic.

I've been seeing a Christian therapist for over a year now. It has been good to have a Biblical spiritual perspective in processing my past, forgiving myself, being forgiven, forgiving others, etc. Much of our time has been spent in prayer, and there has been some profound healing. There has also been a lot of "wasted" time, when months went by without insight. I am changing counselors right now, and it's a hard thing for me. I know I will miss the spiritual aspect and concern, but I need to push on, and the secular counselor I'm seeing now challenges me. I think it's a fine line to "wait on the Lord" and to "work out your salvation."

Best wishes on your degree and practice.

I liked the therapist I saw for awhile who at least allowed me to be a faithful christian. She acknowledged my faith and didn't try to change it ..

I see a counselor who I know is a catholic, attends mass every sunday, and even heads a bible group but does NOT counsel from a christian perspective. If he did I would be outa there because I need advice that is realistic, down to earth and without old fashioned biblical beliefs. I am catholic but a little frustrated with the fact that the catholic churches beleifs are so behind the times. I'll tell you a little story to try and get my point across clearer. I was 18 years old when I found out I was pregnant with my first child, I had no-one to turn to except my priest (who I think the world of), he told me that there was no way I was allowed to live with the father of my child unless we were married. How old fashioned is that? Fortunatly my boyfriend and I had been together for 3 years and had a good solid reason to get married but what if we hadn't? I'm not sure if I'm getting my point across, Im not so good at expessing myself. I just think that todays problems need a realistic, broad minded approach, not one that is based on christian beleifs. Sorry if this offends anyone.
