Welcome to INSIGHT Counselling & Relationship Centre


The Insight Counselling & Relationship Centre offers counselling and relationship counselling in Perth, Western Australia operating from professional offices located in Mount Hawthorn.

Under the lead of Director Deisy Amorin-Woods, highly experienced and qualified mental health practitioner and family and relationship therapist, the centre provides a broad range of services including individual counselling, marriage counselling, relationship therapy and family therapy. The centre also runs a diversity of therapeutic and psycho-educational groups for individuals (such as interpersonal skills & self-esteem groups), families (including parent and child groups) and couples (including pre-marital workshops).

We strive to provide you with timely, relevant and appropriate care in order to help you manage difficult life events, situational crises and interpersonal issues and to leave you feeling empowered and ready to tackle new challenges with strength and confidence. We are committed to provide you with a safe, respectful, supportive and confidential environment in which to undergo this process.

Why family therapy?

We cannot avoid the reality of the impact of health in one person, be it physical illness or mental illness, affecting others in their life. The opposite is also true if the family is unwell (stressed by a number of factors) it will impact on each individual member of the family.

In terms of this and the imprint of families Paolo Freire (2000) states:

“No one ever goes anywhere alone….not even those who arrive physically alone, unaccompanied by family, spouse, children, parents, or siblings. No one leaves her or his world without having been transfixed by its roots or with a vacuum for a soul. We carry with us the memory of many fabrics. A self soaked in our history, our culture; a memory sometimes scattered, sometimes sharp and clear of the streets of our childhood, of our adolescence,the reminiscence of something distant that suddenly stands out before us, in us, a shy gesture, an open hand, a smile lost in a time of misunderstanding” (Paolo Freire, 2000)

Since we recognize the impact that families and past and present relationships have on us today, our aim is to support our clients develop a deeper level of understanding about the root and nature of the issue or conflict in order to be able to achieve acceptance and move forward to address it  and develop more positive, respectful and meaningful relationships.

Sessions cater for the needs of busy and working individuals and families, therefore we are available for some early morning and evening appointments as well as Saturdays.
