Counseling those in the Occult
A Christian counselor is given a unique opportunity to help those stricken by the demonic. With prudence and discernment from the Holy Spirit, a Christian Spiritual counselor can help identify demonic issues with clients. Armed with Christ, prayer and fasting, they can also help rid a client of obsession cases. Possession cases should be dealt with more carefully, especially with the dangerous nature of such cases. Help from ministers, priests, or the Church may be needed.
During counseling sessions, a person may bring up such situations of the demonic. Whether it is an obsession or a infestation case, a counselor can help with proper training and understanding. One important thing in counseling is to see if the seeds for demonic activity have been laid in the person’s life. For these reasons, one should know the client’s history. Has the client ever been involved in the occult? Has his family? In some cases, past family members can consecrate children to satan, or carry generational curses. Another question to ask is if the client has ever naively partaken in occultic ceremonies or played with occultic games
such as ouijii boards or runes or other fortune telling tools.
Another question to ask them is if they know of any in the occult who may have came to their home or has been in their life recently. Sometimes as well, if someone moves into a new home, certain objects may carry attachments to various spirits.
