Our Services


SAMH Insight Centre

Our counselling services began in 1981 by providing helpline and face-to-face counselling for persons with psychiatric, psychological or emotional issues, as well as their families.

What is Counselling?

Counselling is a mutual, collaborative process that involves discussing and working on identified issues and goals with the counsellor. It aims to provide clients with the opportunity to express their thoughts and feelings, gain clarity on their issues and receive support while working to improve their situation.

When to seek a SAMH Counsellor?

When one is:

  • Having difficulties in his/her daily life
  • Feeling stressed out, troubled and confused
  • Having difficulties sleeping
  • Recovering from mental illness
  • Seeking to better support loved ones with mental illness
Our Counsellors

Your concerns and questions will be addressed in a focused and timely manner by experienced mental health professionals with Master Degree in Psychology and/or Counselling.

Client-Counsellor Relationship

In order to support the clients and maintain the therapeutic relationship, counsellors are prohibited by counselling ethics to engage in dual, non-professional relationships with clients, eg, friendships or romantic relationships. As such, your counsellor is unable to meet you socially or contact you for personal favors.
