Our Values and Principles
It takes courage to get started with couples counseling, individual therapy, family, or group therapy. Sharing private thoughts with a stranger can be anxiety provoking. We respect and honor how difficult this can be. Therefore, our work is guided by several important values and principles that we feel contribute to the strong, trusting and respectful connections our clients form with our Therapists.
As our therapy client, you will be treated with the utmost respect in every interaction, from your first point of contact through the completion of your therapy. It is a privilege to be invited into your world in this way and we are grateful for the opportunity to support you.
2. Judgment Free and Shame Free Care
We realize that inner peace and healthy relationships are achieved by integrating all of our life experiences, including those that have been difficult to talk about. Trusting you will not be judged, or left feeling ashamed, is essential for you to feel comfortable opening up to your Therapist. To earn that trust, we will meet you with openness, acceptance and respectful curiosity at all times. Your Therapist will never judge you or your experience, goals and life desires.
3. Strengths Based
At Inspired, we believe the strength to heal and the courage to experience change, lies within each of us. Resiliency, however, is often masked by the effects of life’s challenges when we feel alone, hurt, sad or confused. Our emotional and skills focused Therapists help you reconnect with your inherent strengths and empower your courage to work through these challenges so you can create the type of relationship you long for or achieve a life you love.
4. Private and Confidential
Protecting your privacy and confidentiality in counseling are our top priorities. We are discrete and professional Therapists who take our ethical commitment to your confidentiality very seriously. We recognize that building a trusting relationship with your Therapist is a crucial element to getting the help you need; therefore, we don’t take lightly the profound consequences that could result from even the slightest oversight.
5. Personable and Relatable
As a new Inspired client, we are strangers to each other when we first meet. We recognize this can be uncomfortable or overwhelming for some. Therefore, the Therapists at Inspired are personable and relatable, and will put you at ease quickly so you can gain the greatest benefit from your therapy right away. When your group, family or individual counseling comes to an end, we part ways with a unique and respectful relationship.
6. Knowledgeable and Prepared
Our Therapists are highly trained in their particular areas of expertise. Every Inspired Therapist is engaged in ongoing educational programs to ensure best clinical practice and to remain current with the latest research. Your Therapist will spend ample time preparing for your counseling session in advance to ensure you are making progress and experiencing growth at a pace that feels appropriate and fulfilling for you.
7. Emotionally Safe
Therapy is often about exploring yourself, your relationship or your life in a new way. It is also often about healing from very painful experiences now or in your past. In all cases, the Inspired Therapist creates an emotionally safe environment that radiates acceptance, empathy and compassion so that you can share your most private thoughts and experience the growth you desire. In session, your Therapist will be emotionally present and attuned to you and your experience so you feel supported and understood by your Therapist at all times.
8. Office Comfort
We believe your therapy experience begins the moment you enter our centers in Hanover and Easton. Consistent with the value we place on respect and privacy, our quiet waiting rooms offer several seating choices to allow space and comfort while you wait for your therapy session. Additionally, we offer an assortment of coffee & tea, as well as chilled water. Should you arrive to your appointment early, we hope you will find our waiting room inviting and relaxing as you wait for your Therapist. Once in session, you will be surrounded by comfortable furniture, and inviting decor to make you feel as comfortable as possible while you connect and share your thoughts with your Therapist. At Inspired in Hanover and Easton, MA, we strive to make you feel at peace so you get the most out of your time with us.
