Insight Oriented Therapy

Insight Oriented Therapy approaches mental health counseling with a specific focus on helping you understand your inner motivations and workings. A therapist using insight oriented therapy will encourage their clients to analyze and further understand how events of their past are negatively influencing their current thoughts, feelings, and unconscious behaviors.

What to expect.

Insight Oriented Therapy, or insight therapy, is a client-centered type of talk therapy that can help you better understand yourself better. During each session, the client will recall situations from their life. The therapist helps identify patterns of behavior or feelings and encourages the client to examine them more closely. The philosophy behind this method is that understanding and analyzing the issues that have negatively affected your life will help you identify and change any destructive patterns you have.

Sessions typically last 50 minutes to an hour, and provide a safe space for you to have deep conversations with your therapist.
