How Do I Choose a Biblical Counselor?

Bryan PickeringBiblical Counseling

Trying to decide on a biblical counselor? The Christian Counseling & Educational Foundation (CCEF) has put together a list of eight questions that you should ask of any prospective biblical counselor:

  1. How would you describe your approach to counseling? How do you understand people’s problems? How do you help them grow and change through counseling? Please describe the process.
  2. What books or other resources do you recommend on a regular basis? What books have most influenced your approach to counseling?
  3. Are you a Christian? How does your faith affect your view and practice of counseling?
  4. Do you bring Christian truth into your counseling practice? How? What role does Scripture play?
  5. Do you pray with those you counsel?
  6. Do you attend church? If so, where? How long have you been a member?
  7. What is your educational and professional background? What role does it play?
  8. Are you married? Do you have children? Have you ever been divorced? How does your marriage and family situation affect how you counsel people?
