How would one who practices therapeutic interventions in the field of psychology be able to turn feelings and experiences into questioning whether God is real and being willing to find out? Pain is a great motivator and when one is brought down to their knees metaphorically speaking, they may want Christ Jesus to help them return to a life they can deal with. No only deal with but keep them from falling again.
He will not allow your foot to slip; He who keeps you will not slumber. – Psalm 121:3
If a therapist could chance it and talk about Christ to a person receiving mental health treatment, who seeks a way out of misery and hearing voices, would it be worth it? I think it would.
No matter what the problem of the day, anyone who turns to Christ Jesus has a better chance of becoming strengthened by a trust in Christ.
Christ overcame all.
He is a friend to me and can be to anyone.
Give your hearts to Him, and watch how your life becomes steady and stays on solid ground.

Speaking from the first-hand-experience of councilors who have confided with me about their experiences in trying to be a Christian in the secular counseling world: frustrating would be an understatement. I do not know of any answers that can bring a closure to the issues. I say this to let you know you are not alone in this. -Jeff
You are God’s grace to people since they have come across your path. You are not alone in your endeavors as your Helper, the Holy Spirit can and will use truth to draw them to Christ. Much of people’s anxiety and pain is due to the missing piece of their soul which is God Himself. Even if they don’t respond immediately you have planted a seed in their hearts.
10 As the rain and the snow
come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:10-11 NIV 🙂
