Regain or improve your mental health and wellbeing

You do not need to remain stuck with those feelings of being unhappy, overwhelmed, angry, anxious or any other feelings you may be experiencing which are getting in the way of your life goals.

It is totally OK to come to us to learn how to “unstick” yourself, how to identify and then gain control over your feelings so your head can think more clearly. 

Learning how to do this is what gives you back your mental wellbeing.

Mental Health Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is a private, confidential conversation which has very little to do with illness, or medicine.

It is all about gaining insights, learning, taking action and then healing.

So,  can you do this?  Yes of course you can.

At Changed Insights, we use different techniques to help you learn, take appropriate action and heal.

Some of these may include:

  • Strategic Psychotherapy
  • CBT Psychotherapy
  • Clinical Hypnotherapy
  • Clinical Counselling
  • Coaching for Skill Development

Psychotherapy Research Results

Clinical Psychotherapy, and Clinical Hypnotherapy are mental health fields which have been scientifically researched since late 1800’s.

Some areas,  for example hypnosis used for pain management, has been researched since the beginning of 1830’s, whereas Strategic Psychotherapy is based on Erickson’s work from 1930’s.

Some  research topics and their results  have met scientific research rigour by being replicable. Some of these results are shown below.

Why Choose Changed Insights Therapists

Our Therapists bring their own experiences as well as  similar and different psychotherapy techniques. This means we are able to  treat a range of problems, issues, or concerns.

We have specialized in  children, teens and parents who are caught up on the emotional rollercoaster of  separation, custody battles,  intervention orders, and domestic violence.

This means we are really experienced in dealing with emotional challenges of  anxiety, depression, anger, trauma,  self worth, revenge and despair.

Children react with “poor” impulse control and behaviours… Teens act out with anger and  aggression or withdrawal.

The “wronged” adult partner feels enraged and unfairly treated, whilst the  other partner may be afraid, angry and also feels unfairly treated.

Unfortunately,  we see it all too often.

Doing the work for relationships

Treat most, but not all Problems

We treat every day anxiety, depression, trauma, stress and overwhelm. We also treat domestic violence perpetrators, children and teenagers involved in custody battles, anger management, family conflict, self esteem.
We help with pain management and pain reduction for children, teens and adults.
We currently do not treat addictions, weight loss, or stopping smoking . Nor do we offer couple or family therapy. We know really great colleagues who can support and help with these issues.

Academic & Personal Experience

We too are human. We too know how it feels and what the results are when feelings stressed, anxious or overwhelmed. We understand the range of emotions which often flow apparently out of control when dealing with our own family conflicts.
Wisdom comes from combining experience with knowledge.
Our therapists are all registered and keep up to date with the theories and models we use when helping others. Personal experiences provide a platform for authentic empathy whilst the knowledge delivers a route through the pain and issue.
It is rich contribution to finding solutions together

Extensive Business Experience

We have been business leaders and executive managers. We wish all problems stayed at home, but they do not. Senior Leadership positions in particular, tend to trigger personal issues which then play out in team meetings, board meetings and power plays. This regularly results in dysfunctional leadership, teams and poor or unstable performance. The anger and emotions go home and that then also becomes problematic.
The more stress and ambiguity within the business, the greater the chance of dysfunctional behaviours in teams.
Our Leader Sessions are confidential , based away from work.and usually take up to 8 sessions to resolve issues.

How can Strategic Psychotherapy Help You?

Simply described:  It helps you become aware of, take control, and change HOW you think about your life in the future.

Individual Adult Therapy

Adults have picked up many habits and ways of thinking in their life. Not all of these are helpful! 

It is very frustrating  to feel stuck  and overwhelmed time and again in our lives.

Discover what  you can do differently to get past anxiety, depression,  anger outbursts, trauma episodes and whatever else you feel is holding you back. 

We know unless we change HOW we think about a situation,  we are never going to get  a different result.

Teenagers Therapy

Teens face different challenges to those of their parents. We all say this – however we know  on any given day during 2022  we will be wading through 34GB of data. 

What is really different is that today’s teens are saturated by mobile technology and social media. 

In numerouse studies, covering 11 million teens, it is clear teens today  are not prepared for adult life.

They have poorer mental health,  they tend to be growing up more slowly, – but they do care for others more deeply.

Children Therapy

Being a child today has also changed significantly,  children tend to have much less unstructured, free, unsupervised time.  They are moved from one adult led, adult structured and adult controlled activity  to the next.

They are not learning HOW to think for themselves, how to be resilient, how to  identify which emotions they can describe in words and which ones they think are best described with a kick or a scream.

Interventions for children teach them important new skills – but more importantly, they connect these new skills to the childs brain development.  

Supporting a child’s ability to think and make decisions properly is critical to creating robust mental health for life.

Choose an Appointment

Change your life for better!

The only thing you really control, is how much you want the benefits of having  robust mental health. 

How Do Sessions Work

Sessions include: Mental health discussions, Mental Wellness Planning, Therapy Interventions,  and learning new skills. For most situations, this might need between 4 and 6 sessions.

It never takes 1 session. I call that magic, or hopeful thinking! 🙂

Intake Phase and 1st Session

This longer session (80 minutes) needs us to combine 2 key elements for your Mental Wellness Plan to deliver successful results... your Goal and the most appropriate Wellness Plan **

2nd phase – Work through your Personal Plan

Each session is 50 minutes long. Each one starts with a review of the actions you have taken and ends with further actions to take before the next session. In the session, we work on the steps and insights needed to reset your mental wellness.

3rd phase – Ending Phase

This is a single session of 50 minutes and focuses on consolidating the skills you need to go forward independently, confirms how you make better informed personal decisions, and revisits how you can continue to grow and maintain your achievements…. And Mental Wellness. We always celebrate you achieving your result

** Phase 1 

What are the elements in the Intake and Phase 1 Session?

Step 1 – Both you and your therapist need to know and understand what your intended goal is – however small or large. Your therapist needs to understand what is happening for you, what decisions you make – and how, what influence your emotions have and much more. This leads directly into step 2.

Step 2 – You both discuss and agree on your Mental Wellness Plan. This is a plan which is specific to you, your issue, and your goals.

We also start your healing journey. We work with the first part of your Mental Wellness Plan – and you leave with actions to complete before session 2. The intervention we may use depends on what you need – it could be strategic psychotherapy; hypnosis; counselling; self-discovery; coaching, or any other technique which will help you to start moving towards better mental health.
