The INSIGHT Programmes
The INSIGHT programmes bring together the very best effective contemporary approaches from across the spectrum of psychotherapy. The programmes are tailored to your needs, to bring enhanced insight into who you are within a comprehensive or a more focussed format.
Conduct deep work on your past, present, and future, including your patterns of behaviour, your individual mind and emotional experiences, your early life experience, significant past and present relationships, and other important areas of your life, to discover who you truly are.
It’s only when we fully know ourselves, revealing unconscious processes at play, identifying the sources of unhelpful and destructive thoughts and behaviours, that we are able to make conscious decisions to create new, healthier, and exciting outcomes. Understanding ourselves developmentally, the way our minds work, our emotional patterns, through making a deeper connection with ourselves, allows us to better navigate life's challenges with authenticity and confidence. Being true to ourselves, with the enlightenment provided through structured exploration, allows you to make decisions that feel right for you and provide you with a compass to find direction. Take part in the INSIGHT programmes and start making sense of you and your life.
These structured programmes are carried out on a one to one basis, involve weekly sessions at a time to suit you. Due to the popularity of the programmes, the range and options were increased at the beginning of Autumn 2023. Five programmes are now available: the most comprehensive Complete INSIGHT, the advanced 360 INSIGHT, the more selective INSIGHT Focus, the concise INSIGHT Sprint, and the INSIGHT Accelerator, specifically tailored for young people and young adults. The programmes vary in length between 12 and 30 weeks. All programmes are available in person, online video appointments, or through a combination of in person and online. The sessions will be planned around your availability, and this can take into account planned breaks to fit around your other comitments.
We'll work together on developing a stronger foundation of self knowledge to bring an authentic confidence, a better sense of direction, and a clear idea of an approach to past, present, and future challenges that feels both enlightening and empowering.
The programmes are structured in order to gain a deep understanding of you, and therefore, what you personally get out of the programme will depend on your personal challenges, needs, and aspirations - some of these will be known by you, and we can ensure that the programme incorporates these when we plan your programme, others will come to light within the course of the programme where we can work on them. Here are the most common areas people find they have benefitted from having completed the INSIGHT programme*:
Changing unhelpful, destructive, or repeated patterns of behaviour
A deeper understanding of oneself
Making sense of themselves within important relationships
Challenging anxious thoughts and feelings
Improvement in confidence
Finding direction (educational, professional, relational)
Development of self identity
If you are experiencing challenges in any of the areas listed here, then it's likely that the INSIGHT programmes will be right for you.

How to get started?
How do the INSIGHT programmes differ from open-ended therapy?
There are some key differences that differentiate the INSIGHT programme and unstructured, open-ended therapy.
The INSIGHT programme provides:
More structure to allow a quicker submersion into key areas of your life
Longer sessions, with additional out of session practitioner analysis
Elevated guidance as you are supported and challenged through set and bespoke activities
Enhanced coverage of your past, present, and future
A greater focus on your all-round personal development and self insight
The pace of progress delivers better value for money and time
A defined start and ending of the process
More rapid and intense self discovery
There are also important similarities too.....
Both the INSIGHT programme and less structured therapy provide a confidential, supportive, and a non-judgemental environment. Sessions will be arranged at a convenient time for you.
*Please note: Whilst every effort will be made to maximise your experience of, and the benefits you gain from, the Insight programmes, as with any psychological therapy, specific outcomes of taking part in the Insight programmes are not guaranteed. Many factors can influence progress, and I will be happy to discuss this with you at your initial assessment consultation.
