Professionals on Board – It’s important to remember that these counselors aren’t just life coaches or random strangers connecting with you. These are certified mental health professionals, with extensive training in psychotherapy and a personal affinity for Christianity.
Expertise in Multiple Areas – The licensed professionals on these platforms specialize in treating a variety of mental health issues such as depression, addictions, stress, intimacy, abuse, trauma, and more. While most of the therapists on these sites are technically licensed to treat many issues, they typically specialize in only a handful. During the sign-up process, you will be matched with a therapist who’s specialty meets your individual needs.
Combination of Faith + Therapy – Your Christian counselor works with you using the clinical techniques they’ve been trained on, but will incorporate a faith-based component to the sessions.
Regaining Hope & Purpose – Christian counseling is about more than just helping you work through your problems. It’s about helping you understand how you can use your struggles to grow in your spirituality and faith.
Convenience – When you are trying to overcome major life challenges, it helps if you can remove some of the logistical burdens from the process. Online therapy sessions are dramatically more convenient than in-office appointments. In addition, message boards allow you to engage in an ongoing dialogue with your therapist round-the-clock.
