The Four Quadrants of Counseling
While Comforting Faith counselors use their own treatments, theories and specializations, they share the same general philosophy.
Our counselors look at four important quadrants within all of us: spirit, emotion, intellect and body. Each is related to one another, and if one becomes injured, it can negatively affect the other quadrants.
The more we strive for excellence in those four areas, the more “whole” we tend to feel.
Comforting Faith Counseling seeks to find balance among:
- Spirit – What is your belief system, and how does it impact your life? The deepest spirit of a person must be engaged for therapy to be effective.
- Intellect – How well do you blend common sense and book smarts, and how well do they serve you? Intellect is about seeking truth and using that truth wisely in the real world.
- Emotion – What are your emotions telling you? Negative emotions are often signs that something is wrong. Counseling helps you blend your intellect with your emotions to create a plan that will help you overcome nearly anything.
- Body – How does your body affect your mental and emotional state, and vice versa? Emotional and mental issues can turn into physical glitches if not properly addressed.
