I am a dedicated counselling psychologist who is passionate about facilitating growth, healing and positive change with my clients. My private practice is situated in Ferndale, Randburg, in the north of Johannesburg, where I offer psychotherapy for adults, teens, couples and play therapy for children.
I have worked in a variety of psycho-therapeutic centers including in-patient and outpatient facilities where I have assisted clients with a wide range of personal difficulties. These include depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship difficulties, emotional problems, feeling ‘empty’, anger, chronic pain management, bereavement, men’s sexual issues, self-esteem issues, personal growth, and feelings of being ‘stuck’ in life.
In my work with children I often work with complaints from school, behavioural problems, not listening to parents’ requests, bedwetting, excessive shyness, aggression, ADHD, and difficulties getting along with other children.
- Psychotherapy and Counselling for adults and adolescents (teenagers).
- Couples Relationship Counselling
During therapy a safe and trusting space is provided where clients and I work together as a team to better understand, cope with and master the challenges that are facing them.
- Play Therapy for children
- Collaborative Parent Guidance
Through the use of toys, games and art children are able to express the difficult feelings that are impacting negatively on their behavior, academic performance, and social relationships. Parents and I work as a team and learn effective ways to manage their children’s difficulties. I also liaise with the child’s school teacher to ensure we are all on the same page with our chosen interventions.
I offer afternoon and evening sessions outside business hours. For more information go to my website: www.yolan.net Fees are in accordance with most medical aide schemes. The location in Ferndale, Randburg is close to the neighboring suburbs of of Bryanston, Hurlingham, Bordeaux, Blairgowrie, Robindale, Randpark Ridge, Boskruin and Sharonlea.
