Individual Therapy

Individual therapy is a collaborative process between a therapist and a client. People seek individual therapy when they feel that they have exhausted all the means to resolve issues and there is a need for help.  Psychotherapy allows clients to receive emotional support, useful tools for emotional regulation, and therapeutic interventions for deeper work on presenting mental health issues. Therapy promotes overall mental health resilience by bringing the underlying reasons for psychological problems to the awareness of the client and promoting the change of pathogenic feelings or behaviours.

We work with a wide range of individual therapy issues including anxiety, stress, depression, anger, self-esteem, psychological trauma, relationship problems, addiction concerns, parenting issues and many more.

Child and Youth Therapy

Every parent desires their children to be happy and well. Nonetheless, children and youth can also struggle with various psychological, behavioural, emotional, and cognitive problems. These struggles are often a part of the growing-up process and may resolve on their own. However, if parents or guardians are concerned with their child’s behaviour and/or emotional state and the situation is not getting better, it may be time to seek some help from a therapist. At Insight Centre we welcome children and youth aged 7 to 25 and beyond to support them through the mental health challenges they are facing. If a child is younger than 7 years old, we offer sessions for parents. We use multiple modalities such as Art Therapy, Psychodrama, Gestalt Therapy and more.

Couples Counselling and Therapy

Modern family psychology distinguishes several stages of marriage associated with the corresponding crises in the relationship within the couple. Transferring from one stage to another requires families to make changes in their structural organization, adapt the basic rules of family functioning to the current situation, and develop a new image of themselves. The periods of transition are usually called a crisis. This is when it is most likely that couples would seek professional help as they struggle to adapt to the new situation and/or accept it.

Here are the six main stages of marriage:

  1. Courtship period

The goal is to make a decision on committing to a partner and creating a family.

  1. Family without kids

Newly married couples face many challenges. They need to establish the optimal balance for emotional closeness, to solve the problem of family hierarchy and areas of responsibility. Overall, during this period they need to discuss a lot and establish many agreements on a variety of issues such as mutual values, rituals, financial aspects, relations and boundaries with parental families, and sexual problems.

  1. Family with young kids

When a couple gives birth to a child, they might not be ready for all the hardships of the basic care and parenting it entails, which can create conflicts in families. It becomes necessary for the spouses to rebuild the relationships (hierarchy, intimacy, etc.) that have just been stabilized at the previous stage. As kids grow, the problems of their upbringing, schooling issues and adapting to the new ways of interaction with them take place, as well as the aspects of communication about kids between the spouses.

  1. Mature stage of marriage

This phase of family development requires both partners to resolve the mid-life crisis, adapt to age-related changes, and resolve issues related to the teenage crisis of their children.

  1. Empty nesters

When kids leave home, spouses may find themselves in a situation where the common ways of interaction are not working anymore. The family needs to reorganize its structure again and find ways for the spouses to reconnect on emotional and behavioural levels and resolve problems which were postponed in the past.

  1. Later stages of marriage

At this stage, spouses may go through aging, retirement, physical limitations and illnesses, lack of self-actualization, and a partner’s death. At this point in their life, therapy may be an asset for those who are struggling.

At our centre, we offer professional help with any of the problems couples may face on their life journey using the most effective techniques of Family Systems Therapy and Gottman Method Couples Therapy.

  • Communication Problems

Family Counselling and Therapy

Family therapy is a type of psychotherapy that includes more than two members of a family, like parents and children, partners, grandparents, brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles, cousins, friends, caregivers and other people close to the family.

The goal of family therapy is to help the family understand the reasons for arising problems and make interventions that would assist the family to deal with them, including learning communication skills, reconsidering parenting style, developing a new perspective on the family structure and others.

Family therapy is recommended in cases when a problem or a symptom of the family cannot be resolved without the participation of all or most of the family members. 

That includes cases when a family has dysfunctional relationship patterns and requires professional involvement for resolution.

At Insight Centre we address these issues using an eclectic approach that includes Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, Psychodrama, and Family System Therapy that looks at the family as one emotional unit and considers the relationships within the family and the structure as a whole.

The family issues may include:

  • Psychosomatic Symptoms
  • Mental Health Problems
  • Conflicts
  • Addiction Problems
  • Divorce and Separation
  • Extreme circumstances
  • Loss and Grief
  • Problems with School Performance
  • Age crises
  • Behavioural Issues
  • Fostering and Adoption of Children
  • Anger management issues
  • Physical and Emotional Abuse
  • Chores and Responsibilities

Addiction Counselling and Therapy

Addiction is a complex disease that may be associated with the consumption of chemical substances such as alcohol, marijuana, cocaine, etc, as well as behavioural dependencies like shopaholism, internet addiction, and more. Such dependencies demand personalized treatments using modalities that can address both the symptoms and underlying reasons and assist clients in the improvement of their social and family life should they be affected.

Often the underlying reasons for the addiction are deeply rooted in the clients’ past; this is where a psychotherapist can undertake therapeutic interventions and help clients break free from harmful behaviours.

The purpose of psychotherapy in addiction treatment is to promote necessary inner transformations for clients to be able to maintain sobriety and prevent relapse.

  • Substance Use and Abuse
  • Behavioural Addiction
  • Internet Addiction
  • Shopaholism
  • Sexual Addiction
  • Love Addiction
  • Gambling
  • Shopping Addiction
  • Exercise Addiction
  • Food Addiction
  • TV Addiction
  • Social Media addiction
