Our qualified psychologists, therapists specialised counsellors help in many individual or relationship issues that may arise in life.

Counselling in a care centre environment can be most beneficial due to the application of a multi-disciplinary counselling team.

In your assessment, we match a specific counsellor to you as a person, couple or family. This upfront congruence ensures you are getting counselling that is exactly tailored to what you need circumventing the guesswork.

The personal counsellor assessment process in Cape Town

In a treatment centre, there are a number of registered counsellors and each has their own personality type and life experience and area of expertise. Much of the role of an individual counsellor is to establish trust and congruence with the patient/s so that in sessions you can approach sensitive topics in the shortest time frames possible.

Establishing trust and congruence upfront often means matching personality types, which is often hard to do as an individual that you simply look up a local counsellor and book a session.

Finding a counsellor that meets your individual needs can be a “stab in the dark”.

Even if they are well trained, highly experienced and attuned to your particular needs it may take a good few sessions before you are comfortable with opening up and dealing with what needs to be dealt with.

The motivation for seeing a counsellor that operates in a formal treatment centre environment comes down to what they call “multidisciplinary” case work. In a treatment centre individual cases are in daily peer review in order to asses the best treatment path forward for the patient.

This peer review process essentially shares between other professional counsellors the objective points and merits of each case in order to assesses the best path forward in terms of your treatment plan. This knowledge share ensures that the most appropriate and optimal treatment path is top of mind at all times and that your assigned counsellor does not get stuck in path of treatment simply because that is all they know and think is best.

Often private indivual counsellor services form their own multidisciplinary coalitions to mimic the effect of a multidisciplinary team (which is great in theory). However independent registered counsellors in South Africa are not mandated to do this and if they are part of a coalition it is rarely a daily occurrence and may neglect or reject  multidisciplinary insights, that would normally be enforced in a formal treatment team.

When you are in therapist centre that truly cares and supports you as an individual, the healing can begin. This is what makes our Cape Town Therapy centre a refuge for many circumstances that occur in life. Our Cape Town-based psychologist, therapist and counselling professionals are here to help you today.

Impact Therapy

Impact Therapy is a versatile, multi-sensory and creative approach to counselling that is concrete, rather than abstract in nature. This type of therapy is thought-provoking and action-oriented, and it challenges negative perceptions that clients may have about themselves.

Trauma Counselling

This type of counselling is in response to a traumatic event that the client has experienced. It enables the client to see the light at the end of the tunnel and stop living their lives in that particular moment in time. The aim is to aid the client in living a more fulfilled life, in spite of the trauma they have undergone.

Parent Guidance

The attitude and involvement of the parent/s can greatly impact the performance and overall well being of their child/ren. Parent guidance aims to provide parents with the tools to aid their children as best they can, and positively impact on their emotional well being while strengthening their relationship and opening avenues of communication.

Grief Counselling

Grief counselling aims to assist the client in dealing with the loss of a loved one by focusing on specific areas where this loss has impacted everyday life, identifying strategies to help the client cope while allowing them to find comfort in the memories of their loved one without being overwhelmed by a sense of loss, and by providing a safe environment where the client can express and process these feelings.

Individual Counselling

Individual counselling is a one-on-one, collaborative process between counsellor and client. This type of therapy is very personalised and allows the client to receive feedback and tips from the counsellor. This can help the client develop new perspectives and deal with emotional trauma in an adaptive way.

Online Counselling

We offer to counsel online, that can be conducted in the privacy and convenience of your own home. There is no need for travel, and the obstacle of distance is overcome too.

Couples Counselling

This type of therapy involves specifically dealing with issues that arise in the course of a romantic relationship between two individuals. This type of therapy is aimed at improving communication between both parties, re-establishing emotional connections, and renegotiating commitment, where necessary.

Family Counselling

This type of therapy aims to address issues within the family unit. It is aimed at improving communication between family members, enhancing the quality of relationships, strengthening bonds and increasing the overall happiness of the whole family. This type of therapy is also recommended if parents are going through, or considering, divorce.
