Veronica Banks

Registered Counsellor

I have been counselling people for many years, often referrals from Pastors and church leaders. These referrals are mostly people who have marital problems, or are in the process of getting divorced or in the aftermath of a divorce. The destructive effects of a divorce is sadly underestimated, and if not dealt with effectively, can leave an emotional scar for life. Most people do not have the ability to navigate through the change in these circumstances.

Through my trials and life experiences, God has transformed me and gifted me with the ability to help other silent sufferers. My focus is getting to the root of the problem, and in the process rediscovering one’s own significance and self- worth.

Furthermore, I have a wealth of experience in the corporate world, of which 25 years have been in Leadership. During my career, retrenchment became part of my experience.
