Avoid the commute, from the comfort of your own home or office with greater flexibility regarding session times you may wish to schedule an online skype counselling session.
I support individuals and couples to positively address challenges in their lives, to enable them to live with an empowered attitude and find the joy and fulfillment in their relationship they are striving for.
I embrace the strengths-based practice approaches in my work and I have a special interest in mindfulness. I find that practicing from a strengths perspective is hope enhancing, respectful, and collaborative and that individuals and couples benefit greatly from such an approach.
I am a Clinical Social Worker and I work as a Counsellor and Life consultant. In my role I offer individual counselling/coaching, career consulting, and relationship/marriage counselling /coaching and my main approach is Solution Focused Therapy, Strength-based practice, and Mindfulness practice.
Previous work experience included working in Chemical Dependency rehabilitation at a well-known Alcohol and Drug Rehabilitation Centre in South Africa (Riverfield Lodge) as one of the individual and group therapists.
In my role there I did individual therapy, group therapy, relaxation therapy, some family therapy and couples therapy. I also worked as Field Education Coordinator at The University of Johannesburg – teaching students the practical skill of Social Work.
In my own business – an IT Recruitment Company - a major part of my role was counselling and coaching of staff in a high-energy, fast-paced sales and achievement-orientated environment. The well-being and functioning of the employees were part of my main responsibilities.
