Christian counseling is pastoral counseling which draws upon psychology and Christian teaching.[citation needed]

Integration with psychology[edit]

Efforts to combine counseling with Christian or other religious perspectives or approaches are sometimes called "integration."[1]

Criticism[edit]

Jay E. Adams published Competent to Counsel in 1970 in which Adams criticized the influence of psychology throughout Christian counseling. He began the Nouthetic counseling movement which teaches that the Bible alone is sufficient for all counseling.[2]
