Letitia Kleynhans



I am an experienced counsellor specializing in Trauma and Child and Family counselling. With 13 years of teaching under my belt and three boys to raise, I have honed my skills in Play Therapy, Art Therapy, and CBT. My focus on Child and Family Counselling allows me to utilize my Honours B.Psych in counselling degree and teaching qualification to their full potential. My strength as a teacher lies in building connections with my students and fostering their social and emotional growth for a positive learning experience. While teaching is one of my passions, it's my ability to help children grow and become confident in their environment and abilities that motivates me to continue counselling and help children and families to make meaningful connections. I draw from my personal experience raising three neurodiverse children to provide valuable parenting strategies and coping skills. As a counsellor, I understand the importance of parenting, and I am fully aware of the challenges it can bring. My goal is to assist parents in navigating these challenges and support families through difficult times.

Angela Hough-Maxwell

Muizenberg, Cape Town

Educational Psychologist

I am interested in the meaning of our lives and what makes us feel alive. I believe that therapy is a journey and a relationship. In the safety of this relationship we may bring light to abandoned and avoided parts of ourselves, and be held in the places of suffering and painful experiences; navigate transformations and celebrate our places of joy. This work is ongoing, humbling, enriching and an honour.
