Christian Conversion and Counselling
What effect does conversion to faith in Christ have when it comes to counselling? Is there a difference between christian and nonchristian clients in the counselling room?
These two questions are of great importance to christians who work as counsellors. Particularly so for those who operate within the local church or church agency. The answers will influence to some degree the stance of the committed christian counsellor. Too simplistic an answer will lead to abortive attempts to evangelise inappropriately or at the other extreme a failure to make use of the resources of faith.
