Our mission is to develop a personality disorder service with robust, long-term, and low-cost treatment. We also implement recovery programs within the local community in order for people to regain a sense of meaningful existence and independent living. Our methods move away from what we believe is a dated regressive way of thinking through labelling and prescriptive medicine.
Individual psychotherapy is an approach which helps reinforce a person’s healthy and adaptive patterns of thought and behavior. This is an intensive process focused, not only on problem-solving, but also on holistic personal growth. An essential aspect of individual psychotherapy is building a trusting relationship with the therapist who contributes to this continuous process of self-discovery and personal growth.
The group psychotherapy sessions offer a safe space for individuals to recognize relational difficulties that emerge in a social context. Participating in a group helps deepen the individual’s understanding of their own difficulties. Through all this, the group continues to function as a source of support to all its participants.
We also offer a six-month training program for those interested in working in the field of mental health. As part of this program, trainees learn to conduct effective assessments, recognize symptoms, make clinical formulations, manage crisis situations and maintain necessary boundaries with service users. Based on the trainee’s performance and inclination to work, HNI might offer employment at the end of the program.
