Abstract

Counseling psychology and Christian spiritual direction are the helping relationships to assist a counselee or the guided to overcome his personal problems and relationship with God. The research objective is to describe the relationship between counseling psychology and Christian spiritual direction. To achieve this goal, the researcher uses the literature method with the steps of recording various findings related to this topic, integrating various theoretical findings, and then analyzing and formulating them in a complete paper. The results showed that these two forms of approaches have a strong correlation as a means of helping. Therefore, the researcher suggests that both forms of guidance could be used at the same time because they consider humans as social as well as spiritual beings.
