Relationship & couples counselling Hamilton




Currently I have a  two month waiting list.

For an earlier appointment, please contact another therapist on this website.





My name is Wilme Steenekamp, psychologist and therapist.


Life and relationships can be overwhelming and complicated. We don’t always know how to go forward and tend to become stuck in traumatic experiences and unhelpful ways of thinking and behaviour patterns. 


In psychological and relationship therapy, I can apply a variety of skills, knowledge and experience within a confidential and trusting relationship. Doing this, I can facilitate your process of exploring, understanding and validating yourself and your partner and help you find useful ways of changing your way of thinking, relating to your partner and behaving.


The therapeutic relationship can be a catalyst for constructive change.


My approach is centred around building a therapeutic relationship with you within which there is resonance and connectedness. I use a wide range of therapeutic approaches in an eclectic manner.


You're welcome for relationship & couples counselling in Hamilton.


Online therapy

I use what works best for you. I prefer Zoom, but also use Skype, Whatsapp video or voice call. I will also use telephonic communication if the connection is troublesome.


We spend a few minutes to ensure that the space is confidential and safe and that we have options to go to if the connection drops. We make sure we can hear and see each other well.


This space is different and for some something to get used to, but it is an excellent alternative to face to face therapy.

Statement concerning the coronavirus pandemic

COVID-19 NOITCE: It is very important to not disrupt therapy or delay to start. I am currently continuing with providing therapy in these ways:


   1) In my office in Hamilton East.I stay at a distance, do not shake hands. I wipe surfaces touched regularly. If necessary, I provide wipes, tissues and a bin to dispose of these saftely.

   2) I am well set up to do Zoom, Skype, Whatsapp or telephonic sessions if physically needed for any reason  - also related to Corrona virus recommendations.

   3) I check and communicate about changes in conditions ASAP, on a daily basis.
