Svetlana is the founder of InnerSight Psychotherapy Inc., a Registered Psychotherapist, Relationship Counsellor and Supervisor for psychotherapy interns, with over 11 years of experience. She launched InnerSight Psychotherapy in 2019 as a psychotherapy clinic that not only provides comprehensive and compassionate mental health care, but also as a means for the next generation of psychotherapists to master their craft and further develop their skills under her professional supervision.
Svetlana offers weekly supervision, providing guidance and mentorship for psychotherapists qualifying with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). Working with her CRPO qualifying psychotherapy interns, Svetlana oversees all initial assessments and treatment plans for InnerSight clients seen by her staff.
In addition to supervision, Svetlana also offers individual and group psychotherapy services. Svetlana’s choice to pursue psychotherapy arose from the pain of a deep personal loss. Intensive training in a variety of modalities combined with empathy borne from experience makes her a compassionate therapist with a true desire to help people. Her holistic approach is effective and empowering, resulting in life-long positive changes for her clients.
One of Svetlana’s specialties is relationship counseling.
Known for her authenticity, warmth and engaging personality, Svetlana’s ability to identify and help couples reach into the deeper layers of the psyche has transformed many lives. Using principles of Coherence Therapy (formerly known as DOBT), IFS therapy model and elements of IMAGO therapy, Svetlana has helped hundreds of individuals and couples resolve ongoing conflict, re-create emotional connection, strengthen sexual connection and improve communication skills in order to develop functioning and secure relationship.
In order to make the most out of couples counseling, here are some tips:
- Shift your focus towards your marriage instead of worrying about divorce;
- Be prepared to work on yourself as well;
- Give it a few months – it takes time to repair relationships
- Prioritize therapy
- Have the same goal – having different agendas will make the process more difficult.
