Registered counsellors perform basic counselling for people who are looking to improve their personal functioning. They can also assess to see if a client need more in depth psychological treatment and refer them to the appropriate practitioner. Registered councillors hold honours degrees in psychology.
I am an HPCSA Registered Counsellor offering short term counselling sessions using art as a modality for exploring and expressing of emotional content and thoughts. I have qualified as a Registered Counsellor (trauma) by completing an Honours Degree in Psychology at UNISA as well as completed a full time approved 960 hour internship and supervision at Lefika la Phodiso, a community art counselling organisation in Johannesburg, where I have been trained to think and facilitate working with trauma in a psychodynamic framework with the aid of image making. I have gained experience in working with students as well as young adults dealing with trauma as a consultant counsellor at Orbit FET College supervised by an Educational Psychologist. My experience in working with children range from assisting children, adolescents and young adults negotiating their ways in the context of trauma i.e. loss, sudden loss, stress, grief and bereavement, bullying, stuckness, aggression, divorce, chronic illness, terminal illness, disaster, accidents and making choices that impacts on their future. I regularly undergo training, attend workshops and am in supervision with an Arts Psychotherapist in order to uphold ethical and professional standards and ensure professional as well as personal growth. I am a member of the Institute of Brain Working Recursive Therapy in the UK (BWRT) and am legible to work as a level one BWRT practitioner. I often apply BWRT for fear of failure, self worth and self confidence issues, fear of authority, success inhibition, phobias and grief. As a BWRT® practitioner I attend regular supervision sessions and subscribe to the BWRT® code of ethics
