5 Core Counseling

At Encompass Counseling Center, we believe there are 5 components of a person—areas that if left underdeveloped can impede personal and relational growth. But if developed, these 5 aspects of one’s being can bring a tremendous sense of healing and peace. That’s why we created the 5 Core Counseling model.

We emphasize the 5 parts of the person because it is how we are made by God, who desires to strengthen us at our CORE. What is at the core? Body, mind, spirit, emotions, and others are at our essence. In order to become more fully human, we need to hone our emotional and psychological growth, spiritual curiosity, intellectual acumen, and physical well-being. In doing so, we can also improve our relationships, helping them become all we want them to be.

Experience interactions with others in a more holistic way. Find greater satisfaction with yourself. It’s possible through a focus on the CORE.
