There are quite a few things that people should be concerned about when it comes to Biblical counseling. One of these is that the actual problem that people are experiencing tends to be misinterpreted or not even focused on. The focus is usually on fixing the person, not the problem they have. Biblical counselors also aren’t licensed so there is no confidentiality agreement that you would get with a therapist or a psychiatrist. Finally, biblical counseling typically ignores those therapies which have shown evidence to make a meaningful difference in many people’s lives.
- Biblical counseling typically will struggle to figure out what the actual problem is and how to fix it.
- One of the big issues with biblical counseling is that there is no guarantee of confidentiality with your counselor.
- There are many evidence based therapies that have been shown to work but they are ignored by biblical counseling.
