Do I need therapy?

To help with this question email me at yengelbrecht@nyu.edu for a 3 minute self administered test.

The bottom line is that therapy accelerates growth. We may get there on our own but therapy gets us there quicker and less painfully.

Remember to shop around. Not all psychologists are the same. If you don’t feel your therapist gets you or if you don’t feel heard after a few sessions consider finding someone new. Remember to ask if your therapist has ever been reported to the medical board for any perceived infringements.

How I work

I offer potential clients a Free 3 day, online, Therapy Prep-Course. The course takes a few minutes a day, offers a frame for self reflection and begins the process of empowering you with life-long tools. My clients often use these tools and my newsletter tips long after our sessions have ended. They also share them with their partners and children.

My therapeutic approach is respectful, gentle and eclectic. I draw from diverse knowledge systems including Psychotherapy, Hypnotherapy, the latest in brain science and Eastern and African schools of thought. I offer Skype sessions where required.

About me

I am a Psychologist and Coach. I have a weekly wellness feature on Radio 702 on Sunday mornings at 9AM.  I trained at New York University and the New York Psychoanalytic Institute. I have two internationally recognized coaching qualifications. I am known as the Office Oracle from my monthly advice column in Marie Claire magazine.

I worked as a rapper, restaurant manager, a communications director in government, PR agencies and finally consulted for global firms. I draw from this rich diverse experience as I enter my client’s world. I have a reverence for the human mind and spirit and I’m passionate about each person’s unique path to healing and optimization. In my spare time I teach yoga and meditation.
