What Your Counselor Never Told You

On sale

All of us have struggles in life. We try to change our ways or thought patterns. We try to understand why life isn't going the way it should.

Perhaps you, your spouse, another family member, or a friend has needed some help. Visiting a counselor seemed to make no difference.You saw no improvement.; you found no breakthrough. When healing doesn't occur or last, it may be because the root of the problem hasn't been exposed.

In What Your Counselor Never Told You, Dr. William Backus reveals the much ignored and denied basis for common emotional and psychological problems. Drawing from decades of research and practice, he shows that many distresses in life can be traced back to one of seven traits or characteristics, most commonly known as the Seven Deadly Sins. The key is understanding which of these traits are more dominant in your life, and therefore troublesome, and then learning how to embrace God's remedy.

Dr. Backus examines how sin is the basis of many common emotional and psychological disorders. Revealing the untold story of why we act how we act, What Your Counselor Never Told You is a detailed look at the causes of various character traits and the reasons behind the actions we take. It is both a tool to help you overcome sin in your life, and a handbook for self-examination to lead a purer life. The book explains how sin affects our daily actions and even our character traits.

Ideal for self-use or by trained, counselors, What YourCounselor Never Told You takes the position that spiritual health goes hand-in-hand with mental and emotional health. It puts readers on the right road to recovery.

Includes Self-Assessment Questions For Individual and Group Use.


WILLIAM BACKUS, Ph.D. was founder of the Center for Christian Psychological Services, a licensed consulting psychologist, and an ordained minister. Other books he has written include Telling Yourself the Truth and Telling Each Other The Truth. Dr. Backus passed away in June 2005.
