Palm Beach Christian Counseling Posted on April 7, 2016, updated on April 8, 2016 by John Hawkins Jr., M.S., L.M.H.C., M.C.A.P. Palm Beach Christian Counseling Center Gateway Counseling, welcomes individuals of all faiths and all paths of life. Our practice focuses on a biblically centered approach, bringing to real life the teachings found in the Scriptures. Seeking help is not a sign of weakness, on Psalm 107:28-30 we are encouraged to seek God in times of trouble. “Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, And He brought them out of their distresses. He caused the storm to be still So that the waves of the sea were hushed. Then they were glad because they were quiet, So He guided them to their desired haven.” The method of treatment is fundamentally the same in Christian counseling as in secular counseling. The tools used in the process may differ. Our Palm Beach Christian Counseling Center incorporates your religious beliefs into the counseling session. Some people bring specific spiritual issues related to their emotional symptoms, and they want to be able to resolve those in sessions with another individual of the same faith. Some clients get great comfort in discussing the scriptures. Others achieve the connection with their emotional concerns through prayer.
