Regarding Marriage Counseling



When should you consider visiting a Christian marriage counselor?
Adapted from - http://www.faithwriters.com/article-details.php?id=64195 If you answered yes to any of these questions, then it would likely be advantageous for you to take some time to visit a trained Christian marriage counselor. The counselor will help you and your spouse look at the issues you're facing, offer sound Biblical counsel, and help you establish a plan to address them.


What does Christian marriage counseling address?

Christian marriage counseling can help you in several areas where you may be struggling. First, counseling can help you deal with individual concerns that have come up for one or both of you such as grief, doubt, anger management, and other unresolved concerns. Second, counseling can help you deal with relational issues, including everything from a loss of closeness, to conflict resolution, and to infidelity. Third, counseling can help refocus your marriage when one or both of you feels like you've lost a sense of devotion to God's principles for your lives.


Williams Christian Counseling disclosures:

I have really enjoyed marriage counseling since my first case back in 1999. It is great to see hope return in couples when they see that change is possible in their marriage.

I'm not a marriage expert. I'm single and have never been married. I feel qualified to do marriage counseling based on: 1. My education and training by marriage counselors. 2. Experience working with numerous couples. & 3. Most importantly, guidance, insight, wisdom, and discernment given by the Holy Spirit.

A great number of couples I work with have already been to marriage seminars and may have read relationship-help books. They already have most of the knowledge needed to change their relationship for better. What they need is someone to hold them accountable for putting the knowledge into practice. That is where I can be of value assisting the couple with knowledge application to change their relationship habits.

Every couple is different. A technique that works well with one couple may not work well with another couple. Being single enables me to not have biases based on personal experience with what I believe works best in a marriage.

For Pre-Marital counseling I use Gary Chapman's series titled, "Things I wish I'd known before we got Married."

For a great number of Marital counseling cases I use Emerson Eggerichs book titled, "Love & Respect."

Of course I use a Christ centered approach with all my clients. The following is a sample treatment plan for a couple that I have worked with, the names have been removed to maintain confidentiality. Several specific recommendations are added during the counseling sessions.
