TRIUMPH OVER TRAUMA
Be Set Free
What is Christian Counselling?
Christian counselling, also known as biblical counselling and Christian psychology, combines your faith with the principles of psychology to improve your mental health and relationships. More specifically, this therapy approach uses scripture and biblical teachings to help you deal with life’s challenges.
The truth is, when you are in the midst of troubling life events like the death of a loved one or pet, the loss of a job, declining health, financial problems, and/or relationship issues, a strong and resilient faith may be just what is missing from your life.
The ultimate goal of Christian counselling is to help Christians identify behaviours that are inconsistent with God’s teachings, so they can become more accepting of God’s will – even when it is not their will. Christian counsellors believe that the bible is the ultimate guide on how people, especially Christians, should think and behave. In other words, they view this holy book as the one and only truth. It is the truth, Jesus Christ, that sets us free.
At Triumph Over Trauma we believe in a Christ Centred and Person-Centred approach as Christ is the centre of each person spiritually. Given we are a spirit, in a body with a soul (mind, will and emotions) we have to be transformed by renewing the mind and that is done through the word of God. The mind has two parts, the conscious and the subconscious and it is in the subconscious we hold onto beliefs that inhibit us from having the full relationship we desire with God.
We know that what prevents us having a fulfilling relationship with God is our unconscious core beliefs that pose as a barrier to living the faith filled life we desire. As Paul the Apostle says, the spirit is willing, but the flesh is week. Why is it that I know what to do and fail to do it, and I know what not to do and keep doing it? By integrating our Richards Trauma Process with the desire to be free, we tap into the truth of what is blocking you and you can experience freedom from emotional constraints and have a deeper spiritual relationship with the father, the Son and the holy Spirit.
