Alexa Kroon-Canning is a Clinical Social Worker in private practice, with a special interest in the field of addictions.

She is a University of Cape Town graduate and has experience working with children and families in the child protection setting, palliative and end of life care with older populations, trauma debriefing, mental health service, employee wellness, training and skills development, and lecturing and supervising social work students.

She currently offers four major services:

  • Psychotherapy for a range of issues, including depression, anxiety and loss, as well as coping with life with a mental illness.

  • Addictions Care for people who think they might have a drug/alcohol problem or eating disorder (or other addiction), as well as pre or post residential treatment support for the addict or their loved ones.

  • Elder care for older people still residing at home. This involves a needs assessment and care plan (especially for families who are overseas with an older family member in South Africa), as well as emotional support around key life stressors, including depression and a possible move to an old aged home.

  • Employee Wellness is offered through the use of onsite clinics, as well as workshops (in collaboration with a martial arts and massage expert) which focuses on managing stress and physically caring for yourself in an office environment.
