Insight oriented therapy helps people look at the underlying “cause” or triggers to problems. This understanding opens the door to changing what it meant to you and the reality that you developed because of it. Insight oriented therapy also works on the assumption that the better you know yourself, the better you will thrive in the world. The process strives to teach you how and why you function in the ways you do and to clarify your motivations. It gives you self-knowledge. Most of all, it gives you freedom.

When you have freedom, you have power and a greater range of choices available to you in any given situation. Insight allows you to break free from old habits and patterns of behavior and it lets you choose new ones as you see fit. The goal of insight-oriented therapy is self-knowledge and freedom at the deepest level.
