What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?
What is Motivational Interviewing?
“When I was referred to Insight Platform I initially didn’t think it would make a difference to my life. However, my key worker was absolutely amazing, which allowed me to let my guard down. From the first session I was convinced that I could make some positive changes. I still have some low days like most people but I now know how to control my triggers and can live a normal life.”
