Christian counseling can help you by incorporating God’s Word and Biblical truths into the processing of your issues. Your counselor can help you explore the problems you face while also exploring how these issues interact with your beliefs and your walk with God.
There are many different reasons why people seek our Christian counseling, including:
● Dealing with the constant exposure to darkness● Coping with anxiety● Managing stress as a first responder● Dealing with depression● Recovering from grief and loss● Strengthening your faith● Improving your relationship with God● Religious trauma and/or church hurt● Anger management● Coping with parenting struggles● Poor self-esteem or self-confidence● Poor relationships with peers
So many responders struggle with understanding when it is time to seek counseling. Professional counseling services can help first responders who are experiencing the following responses to a critical incident:
Your response to the incident is consistently disrupting your daily activities. You find yourself struggling with leaving the incident at work. The memories flood your mind unexpectedly or they never leave. And it makes it hard for you to complete every day tasks or to meet the needs of your loved ones. Professional help can get you back on track.
Your response to the critical incident has lasted more than one month. If you have been experiencing a response to a single critical incident for more than 30 days past the incident, professional support can assist you with moving forward.
Your response to the incident is increasing in intensity. If your initial response was quiet and typical, and now you are having a harder time managing the reactions, we can help you to find peace and clarity.
You believe you would benefit from critical incident counseling. You know yourself best. And you are very intelligent. Follow your gut and get help.
