Counselling psychologists treat people dealing with normal life challenges, such as the loss of a job or divorce. They hold Master’s Degrees in Counselling Psychology and are registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa.
I started my career at industrial schools, reformatories and childrens' homes and in the process learned a lot about children with behavioural and learning problems. Also service in the school psychological service as subject advisor. After that twelve years as addiction treatment specialist at an in-patient treatment centre for all forms of addiction. Persons tend to concentrate on the treatment of psychological conditions, quite often underestimating the importance of preventitive measures, which can potentially prevent a lot of damage and trauma.
