Conditions

Here at Chayil Christian Counseling Services we offer help with a multitude of conditions. Our team is extremely qualified and trained in providing psychotherapy for these conditions listed below.

Anxiety

Anxiety is your body’s natural response to stress. It’s a feeling of fear about something that has not taken place yet (or may never happen).  When these responses to stress become ongoing and begin to debilitate everyday functioning, it could be a result of a disorder such as generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, or social anxiety.  There are things you can do though to alter your responses through making lifestyle changes.

Depression

Depression is a common mental disorder characterized by sadness, loss of interest in doing things, sleep disturbances, and feelings of worthlessness, helplessness, and hopelessness.  Of all mental disorders, depression is among the most treatable with between 80-90% receiving treatment and responding well to it.

Drug and Alcohol Addiction

Addiction is a chronic disease of brain reward and circuitry affecting one’s life socially, psychologically, biologically, and spiritually. A person living with an addiction will continue to drink or use drugs in despite the adverse consequences it causes.  Drug and alcohol addiction can be successfully treated with the right treatment plan.

Dual Diagnosis

Dual diagnosis is the term used when a person is diagnosed with both a substance use disorder (such as alcohol or drug use) and a mental health disorder (such as depressive disorders, bipolar disorders, anxiety, etc.). Treatment for dual diagnosis requires and integrative approach.

Stress

Stress is the feeling of overwhelm when our bodies are responding to mental and emotional pressure.  Stress affects everyone but long-term stress is harmful to our bodies.  Learning how to cope with stress is the best way to manage it and there are many effective coping mechanisms that have proved to be effective.

Self-esteem Issues

How a person feels about themselves is very important to their mental health. Low self-esteem has been linked to poor relationships, anxiety, depression, and addiction.  When a person discovers their worth and value through building their self-esteem, they go on to live very vibrant and fulfilling lives.

Trauma

Individual trauma results from negative events, experiences, and adverse effects that are physically or emotionally harmful or life threatening.  These events, experiences, and effects interfere with healthy functioning of our mental, physical, social, emotional, and spiritual well-being.  Understanding your trauma is the first step in healing your mental health and well-being.
