COUNSELING FROM A CHRISTIAN PERSPECTIVE.
Each day we are becoming a creature of splendid glory or one of unthinkable horror
A SCIENCE BASED PROGRAM WITH YOUR FAITH IN MIND.
We are often asked if this is a faith based program. The answer is not a simple one. Our program is based on science with hard evidence that these methods work for most porn addicts and their families. However, we are Christians and our faith informs our practice. Religious counseling programs often attempt to help porn addicts by amplifying feelings of guilt. It is true that a little guilt can be motivating in treatment. However, a lot of guilt is overwhelming. The other issue with this philosophy is that it may amplify shame. Shame is feeling bad about who you are and not just bad about what you have done. It is very difficult to fight a battle when you are the enemy.
Our focus is on changing the way that you think about yourself, other people and the world around (and yes, even your problem) in order to make real changes in your behavior. This will also change how you feel going forward. We offer coping skills that are healthy, positive and even fun to do. Relationships tend to be a lot better when you are not always apologizing for yourself. Recovery does not happen over night and there are usually bumps in the road but with perseverance you can win this battle.
“Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.” - Romans 5:3-4
