  • Family changes such as separation or divorce
  • Mental health conditions 
  • Emotional, physical or sexual abuse
  • Eating disorders
  • Sexual identity
  • Self-esteem and self-harm
  • Grief and loss of a loved one

Individual Counselling

Individual counselling can help you with the individual’s immediate or near future concerns. It is often called psychotherapy, talk therapy, or treatment, and it is a personal process where the individual is assisted to explore their feelings, beliefs and behaviours. It could also be working through some challenging aspects of your life to gain a better understanding of oneself, set personal goals, and move towards desired change you would like.

Together with the Counsellor we will assess your immediate needs and we will help you work through your challenges. Some areas that we can assist you with are:

  • Relationship challenges (partner, friends and family, or breakup)
  • Confidence and self-worth issues
  • Bullying and harassment
  • Burnout and Fatigue
  • Trauma – both experienced and witnessed
  • Stress, Depression and Anxiety
  • Grief and Loss
  • Lack of direction or purpose

Some individuals benefit greatly from talking therapy, whilst other many need more tailored therapy such as Art therapy, Clayfield therapy, Sandplay therapy or Guided drawing. At Innate Therapy our staff are qualified in a range of counselling modalities that will suit a variety of individuals and their own needs. You can read more about our different modalities here: (hyperlink to page of different therapies).

FAQ’s for individual counselling

How do I know if I need counselling?

We can all benefit from seeing a counsellor at certain times of our lives. The ability to talk with someone who is not emotionally involved and therefore holds no bias is great to assist you in working through aspects of your life that are not working, not feeling great or preventing you to move forward. .

What happens during a counselling session?

You as the client have total control of the session which means that if you did not wish to discuss something you do not have to. You as the client direct the counsellor into the direction you choose to go.

How often will I need counselling?

This is so different for everyone. It is great to start off weekly as the therapeutic relationship is forming, then move to fortnightly, then monthly then ceasing counselling to allow you to integrate your new way of being into your everyday life.

Couples / Relationship Counselling

When priorities change for each individual such as personal interests, work, family, friends, and children it may suffer. The areas in which relationships often suffer most are in communication and understanding, care or respect, physical intimacy and affection, or attention or interest. Some of the major areas of relationship breakdown are:

  • Loss of Trust
  • Lack of honesty
  • Loss of intimacy
  • Dealing with abusive behaviours
  • Infidelity
  • Financial challenges
  • Communication problems
  • Sexual difficulties
  • Blended family and extended family issues
  • Setting boundaries

Relationship counselling can offer the couple a safe non-judgemental space to reflect on their patterns of behaviour, explore, recognize and resolve conflicts with the focus to improve their interactions. When you understand these things, it can help you to again enjoy closeness and intimacy with your partner.

Relationship counselling at Innate Therapy can provide you with tools to make thoughtful and intentional decisions about your relationship, and to offer you the tools to make positive and lasting change in your relationships.

FAQ’s for couples counselling

What can I expect in couples / relationship counselling?

You can expect a safe and nurturing environment for both you and your partner to be able to talk about how things are you within your relationship. This is a non-judgmental space which makes every attempt to keep balance within the room as both voices are important.

How does individual relationship counselling work?

As every relationship is unique it is important to allow what needs to happen to occur, this sometimes means that individuals would be seen without their partner present to allow individual work to be done and then bring it back to the relationship.

What if my partner doesn’t want to come?

If you partner does not wish to attend, that is ok. You can book in to see the therapist to discuss the relationship from your perspective. You may like to go home to your partner and discuss things that were explored during therapy in the hope that they may join in later.

How long will the relationship counselling take?

That is answer that can not be answered as each relationship is different and the level of complexity within each relationship is unique. It would be great to aim for at least six sessions to allow the opportunity for positive change to occur.

Problems only get solved when you stop ignoring them

You don’t have to struggle in silence. At Innate Therapies, we know that every person is unique. That is why we have a range of evidence based therapies we integrate into our traditional counselling methods to get to the root of a problem. A treatment method that is “evidence-based,” is backed up by objective, scientific evidence that proves it is effective.

Here’s what some of our clients are saying

Supervision with Donna has been very significant for my ongoing development as a Counsellor. She has supplied assistance in all the areas you would want assistance from in a supervisor. Donna has delivered guidance with clients as well as support with personal struggles. She has provided good advice for further training, employment opportunities, resource suggestions and more. Donna is always on time and welcoming. She also always follows through if she says she will do something, and last but not least, she has carried me in her belief in my ability as a Counsellor when I have had doubts about that myself.

By far the best team I've ever worked with. They truly understood the look I was going for and completely nailed it! I would highly recommend them as a company, you simply just won't find any better team!

Salient is by far the most astonishing WP theme out there! I literally could not be happier that I chose to buy your theme! Your regular updates and superb attention to detail blows me away every time I visit my new site!

I'm wondering why I never contacted these guys sooner! Seriously, they all have commendable talent in their respective fields and knocked my concept out of the ballpark. Thanks for an amazing experience!
