I am a Registered Counselor practicing in the Northern Suburbs as well as in Stellenbosch. In the Northern Suburbs I form part of the Private Practice of Juazel Pieterse and in Stellenbosch I form part of a multi disciplinary team at the Stellenbosch Centre for Early Intervention.

I offer individual and group therapy with children, adolescents and adults as well as assessments and basic screenings. I make use of different therapeutic approaches according to the client's unique need and ability. I believe in a holistic approach when working with a client.

My role as a Registered Counselor focuses on prevention, promotion, empowerment and appropriate referrals. I specialize in the development and training of skills in order for the client to function independently and as healthy adults. I therefor focus on adjustment in different contexts and according to unique needs.

Examples of areas that I specialize in include: - trauma - bullying - divorce - social skills - loss/bereavement - study methods - conflict resolution - challenging behaviour in the classroom - abuse - adjustment problems
