Letitia Kleynhans

Hoedspruit

Counsellor

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.

Kerry Acheson

Table View, Cape Town

Counselling Psychologist and Life Coach

In today’s fast-paced, do-it-all, distracted, disconnected world, we often find ourselves burnt out, overwhelmed, anxious or depressed. If, like me, you are a highly sensitive person (HSP), then managing the overstimulation of day-to-day life takes special care. When crisis hits, it can be hard to hold on to a sense of hope or faith.
