J.D. Murphy, LMFT has recently completed the certification process to become a temperament counselor through the National Christian Counselors Association. Temperament Counseling is a powerful tool for providing effective Christian therapy that can make a real difference to your life.
What is a temperament counselor?
Temperament counseling is based on the understanding that all of us are born with a particular temperament that was given to us by God before we were born. As the Psalmist says (139:13), ‘For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb’. Each person’s personality is an expression of this temperament, but the way this temperament is expressed depends on their upbringing, environment, education, and the role the Holy Spirit has played in their lives.
Often in life, people face internal conflicts caused by trying to live in a certain way that is incompatible with their God-given temperament. A temperament counselor starts by assessing your fundamental temperament, in order to reveal your inherent strengths and weaknesses. You can learn to nurture these strengths and how to make them work for you in your own life. You will also become more aware of where your weaknesses lie so you can take action to lead a more effective life.
