Indigenous Counselling

Indigenous people have been subjected to years of colonialism, trauma, and systemic racism. At Insight Psychological, our therapists deliver treatment with a trauma informed and culturally responsive approach as mental health needs vary from population to population.  Insight Psychological offers counselling for Indigenous peoples with therapists that have specialized experience with Indigenous peoples or some are Indigenous themselves with lived experience.

When is it time to get help?

It may be time to get help from a therapist when you experience depression, anxiety, or symptoms of other psychological concerns. When you’re feeling isolated, rejected, unworthy, scared, or you are losing hope, reach out for help.

Common treatment methods

There is not a one-size-fits-all therapy – your therapist will  listen to you to  discover the best ways for you to heal and grow stronger.
