We honour, trust and believe in your inner potential for wellbeing. We believe in the resilience of the human spirit and in the possibility of healing, change, transformation and growth. As we journey together, we will provide you with support and exceptional holistic care, acknowledging the interconnectedness of the mental, emotional, physical, social, and spiritual parts of who you are. We provide therapeutic interventions which are culturally-sensitive. We offer you a safe space where all aspects of your Cultural Identity are honoured and respected. Cutlural Identity from a multicultural perspective embraces ALL dimensions of who you are, including race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion/spirituality, ability, age and social status. Everyone is safe and welcome.

We believe that everyone is precious and is entitled to receive the support they need for their wellbeing. We want to provide help to anyone who needs it. Our philosophy is to make our professional services affordable and accessible, whilst guaranteeing exceptional quality of counselling, therapeutic interventions, life skills and personal development programs, workshops, seminars and retreats.

Benefits of counselling and
personal development sessions

Safe Space

Counselling is a safe space that can give you the opportunity to explore your thoughts, feelings, challenges, difficulties and pain.
It offers the opportunity for healing and self development to take place at your own pace. 

Growth

Counselling and Personal Development sessions provide greater self-awareness and skills acquisition that can help foster change, healing and growth.

Counselling

Freedom

It can help you see things from a different perspective. It is a place where you have the freedom to talk about anything and be listened to by a caring and non-judgemental professional. 

Time Out

It gives you 'time out' to work on issues which are or have been troubling you and thus leads to a healthier lifestyle and wellbeing.

About the Founder

About the Founder

Hello! My name is Ella. I am the founder and director at Insight Wellbeing. It has long been my goal to establish a caring, therapeutic and safe place where people can come to share their burdens, learn, grow and heal. Welcome!
Here’s a little info about me. I wear many hats, I am a counsellor, an educator, a youth minister, a mother and a wife. I have a passion for psychology, cultural diversity, theology and spirituality, travel, art, writing and research. I am on a soulful journey focused on growth, learning and unconditional love.  

 


    My therapeutic approach is Person-centred and Eclectic, meaning that I honour you and your life story by using techniques and teaching you skills from various theoretical orientations that are suitable for your well-being and goals. I have a Master of Arts in Transcultural Counselling, where I graduated with a Distinction and was awarded The Dean’s Award for Excellence in Studies. I also have a Bachelor of Education (Honours). I am passionately committed to ongoing professional development through continuous research, training and supervision. 

    The approach at Insight Wellbeing is based on findings in the field of neuroplasticity. Both Kandell (1998) and Doidge (2007) assert that counselling (talking therapy) promotes detectable changes in the brain. Brain scans of clients taken before and counselling show that the brain changes itself and the more meaningful counselling is, the greater the positive change!

    My experience in counselling and education is diverse. My clients have come to counselling with a variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, lack of direction or meaning in life, feeling stuck or unable to move past a traumatic experience, spiritual dilemmas, drug-related issues, anger management, relationship and/or family issues, cultural issues, identity development, childhood issues and more. I have also taught Life Skills and Personal Development to children, adolescents and adults who requested guidance in areas such as self-esteem and lack of confidence, friendship, bullying, assertiveness and much more. I have worked with clients individually as well as in groups in various settings such as residential therapeutic settings, parent groups, youth groups and with the elderly. I have delivered workshops, seminars and classes encompassing practical psychology as well as workshops and day retreats combining psychology with Christian spirituality to explore topics.

"A sincere THANK YOU from our office for your superb Laughter Wellbeing Workshop. You set the tone and it was a fun and relaxing morning where we all benefitted!"

Alison Harding and Miguel Capella 
Social Support Coordinators
Testimonials

"I was very anxious and shy. I was also very aware and self conscious of my lisp, however during our Personal Development sessions I used to feel more comfortable talking. I felt that I was in a safe space where I could share ideas and let go of my insecurity for a while. I trusted the help you gave me, that if I was self confident then whatever anyone would say wouldn't matter. During the sessions, I also got to learn about several topics which were important for my life. I was no longer afraid to share my opinion, even on serious topics. I am so glad that I chose you as the person I used to go to for advice as it has made a big difference to me."

Testimonials

"Ella gave a few talks to the parents at our parish. She was warm, open and engaging and the content was really interesting. It helped us to integrate our faith with practical skills for every day life. All the members found the tips and suggestions of every talk very encouraging and useful for themselves and their loved ones."

Testimonials

"When I joined Ella’s class, she constantly demonstrated her depth of knowledge and understanding of the Complex Trauma that affected Stolen Generations when past government policies removed them from their families and their land. Ella encouraged us to be “Person-Centred" and to accept our clients without judgement, with acceptance and with respect. I felt privileged to be one of Ella’s students."
