Nevertheless, to their amazement, physical and emotional healings occurred. We as Christians seek healing, but many times do not seek a greater relationship with Christ.

As Screwtape advises his nephew, "When they meant to pray for courage, let them really be trying to feel brave. When they say they are praying for forgiveness, let them try to feel forgiven. Teach them to estimate the value of each prayer by its success in producing the desired feeling, and never let them suspect how much success or failure of that kind depends on whether they are well or ill, fresh or tired, at the moment" (Lewis, 16). The emotional rush that occurs when drawing near to the Holy Spirit is a feeling almost every Christian has experienced. New believers tend to use this feeling as their sole motivation for prayer, study, and worship.
I also think that the counselor could also use the option of not confronting sin with our clients by using either the outside-in approach or the inside-out approach. I think that this could be a bit challenging at times, due to it being difficult for people to admit their sinful nature. The fourth concept that I would include in the counseling process is confession. I feel that this would be the most challenge concept to include with the couple during the counseling session.
In this book, I feel the title of the Christian psychology approach can be very confusing .if we see from the title, we will interpret the Christians who are in the field of psychology is a Christian psychologist. Also, in this book explained that not all Christians must conform to Christian psychology approach. Christian psychology approach is a combination of integration approaches and the biblical counselling approach.

Sonia Greenidge and Martyn Baker’s article, Why do Committed Christians Seek Counselling with Christian Therapists, issued in Counselling Psychology Quarterly in 2012, explores Christians’ reliance on fellow Christian therapists for guidance with their mental health. Greenridge and Baker provide transcripts of interviews they conducted with six Christian clients. Throughout the interview, the authors analyzed the specific language and phrasing used to determine the participant’s expectation, experience, and preference for an equally religious counselor. Greenridge and Baker’s results demonstrate two discourses within the study. Some of the participants fall into the client discourse, where counselling is equivalent to a business transaction

Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) is a unique style of therapy it is one of the most empirically reinforced kinds of therapy utilize for psychological disorders, and Siang-Yang (2007), in “Use of Prayer and Scripture in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy” promotes an integration that will provide clients clarity into internal healing. Siang-Yang (2007) provides a clear view and well-considered approach that introduces a Christian approach as to when to be the proper time to integrate the Bible, scriptures, and prayers to be the foundation in cognitive behavioral therapy sessions. The distinctive component of the therapy is initiated with the client when they have self-regulation of religious zeal it is also the responsibility of the client to promote
Adolescence is a developmental stage fraught with uncertainty, confusion, conflict, and growth. LGBT youth are unique in that face common challenges that are pervasive in most youth cultures, along with the difficulties encountered by the LGBT minority population. As a young person, common challenges such as grades in school, conflicts with friends and/or family, and struggling with romantic issues can become extremely difficult to manage when coupled with discovering and coming to terms with one’s identity.

One very important aspect of DBT is that it allows us to see the clients view and understand their difficulties. Through DBT mindfulness skills are explored in a skills group and reinforce these skills in individual therapy sessions in order to help the client accept negative or painful emotions, rather than to avoid them ((Bliss & McCardle, 2014). Joe’s experiences throughout life have never been faced the way it should be. Instead he would seek drugs and alcohol to cope with the pain he was undergoing.
