Understanding ourselves and how each of us is uniquely crafted by God is an essential first step, not only in correcting our own bad habits and destructive behavior, but in improving our relationships with others. Every effective counseling series begins with an initial assessment, to gain eye-opening insights into our own God-given temperaments and the real reasons for why we think, feel and act the way we do. Once we can accurately identify the root causes for our emotional and behavioral challenges, we can work on a plan of action to affect real and lasting change in our lives and achieve the full potential that God desires for us.
Every successful marriage requires effort and commitment by both spouses. In addition to the inherent differences between men and women, our individual temperaments and life experiences can add to the complexity, misunderstanding and lack of communication that gradually develops in many marriages. Many couples who experience marital difficulties follow a common pattern of behaviors that can lead to increasing distance, animosity, resentment, and even separation or divorce, if not properly addressed. Some marriages would do well with an honest evaluation and occasional “tune up,” while others require true crisis intervention. Whatever the situation, professional, biblically-based counseling can help.
Family counseling sessions can be a valuable exercise to better understand, relate to and appreciate the people closest to us. All members of the family can benefit from and enjoy learning how each of their unique, God-given temperaments naturally interact with one another, and how simple changes in familiar patterns can dramatically improve the family dynamic. Parents can also gain valuable new insights into the minds and hearts of their children, and how best to guide each individual child along the path to the confident, abundant life God has planned for them.
