At Insight Counselling and Relationship Centre our goal is to facilitate awareness, understanding and growth in the person and families we work with. It is through gaining INSIGHT that one can develop awareness and understanding of the unconscious nature, origin and meaning of our attitudes, feelings, behaviour and the impact of this on our relationships. There are two important vehicles in achieving this ‘the therapeutic relationship’ between client and therapist and the presence of ‘safety’ in this relationship. Therefore we strive to provide our clients with a safe and respectful environment within which they can begin the necessary process of exploration.
There are a number of different approaches to counselling and therapy, and I have trained with a diversity of them at the national and international level. Some of those include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Mindfulness Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Neuro-linguistic Processing, Motivational Interviewing, and Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing. I have also trained in family therapy, couple and relationship therapy. While I have trained in a diversity of models, I strongly belief in the fact that each person’s experience is unique, and therefore the approaches I will use with you (and your family) will be dependent on you and the issues you bring.
Our aim is to work with you to address your concerns until we arrive at a place where you feel empowered and ready to tackle new challenges with strength and confidence. We can provide support for a wide range of issues and your appointments are treated with complete confidentiality. Your appointments are completely tailored around you and your needs and we also provide a range of programs to address various issues.
Whether you have received counselling before or whether this is your first time, please rest assured you will experience a welcoming, safe and supportive environment where you can openly discuss any personal or interpersonal issues. We will be open and receptive to your needs in order to help you explore and work through at a pace that feels comfortable to you.
