For starters I have moved premises. It had been heart-sore initially but now I am very easily accessible from a much wider area i.e. Honeydew, Wilgehiuel, Northgate, Northwold, Sonneglans, Olivedale, Kya Sands as well as being just off the Malibongwe Off Ramp! I am still offering the same working hours with the added advantage of our own generator – what more do we need!
When it comes round to reviewing what has transpired in the past while I find it interesting to note the changing trends in the needs for counselling. What happens in the broader community is reflected in my consultation rooms and I am finding much more pressure being exerted on people – either by others or by themselves. This should be dealt with in a healthy manner in order for healthy relationships and families.
My aim as a registered counsellor has been to gain as many experiential skills as possible - all aimed to offer a wider range of services. I'm always looking for ways to improve my services to you and I would appreciate any suggestions and/or feedback you may have. Please feel free to contact me either by cell phone or email.
Over the last number of years I have been working closely as a trauma counsellor with SA Depression & Anxiety Group (SADAG) who offers an invaluable service to the community on a national basis. I have also been involved with ICAS performing group trauma debriefings to the corporate world; involvement in Careways who offer assistance to employees and their families, and finally with SAPS community Policing Trauma Unit offering counselling to victims of crime in the Honeydew area.
I have also worked with a substance abuse outpatient centre for a substantial period. This social problem is like an iceberg – it is a massive problem which needs to be addressed but which is avoided.
I am registered with PSYSSA and currently championing the role of the registered counsellor to the broader medical profession and to those who can be served.
