Hi, I am Chevonne Powell
 

Clinical Psychologist and Founder

PS 0123056 PR 0568503

My journey to become a clinical psychologist was motivated by my sincerest belief that every person has the ability to make a change. To me, becoming a psychologist was not about ‘fixing’ people or giving advice, it was about helping people to find their own drive and direction to make changes in their lives. It does not matter if a person is struggling with a life crisis or has a mental illness, all can empower themselves to find meaning and in turn live life with fulfilment.

More about Chevonne

 

My academic journey led me to graduate with a Masters degree (with distinction) from the University of Johannesburg, having completed my undergraduate degree and honours degree through the University of South Africa. My master’s thesis focused on the Clients Experience of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. This topic was developed from my passion and own healing experience in working with horses. During this time I also received a Post Graduate Certificate in Education and work experience as an educator. In addition I am a registered Babies in Mind practitioner and I am certified with EAGALA for my work with Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. I regularly attend workshops and courses in order to grow as a person and psychologist

Clinical Experience Includes:

 

  • A broad spectrum of clinical work with adults, adolescents, children and families in primary hospitals:​

    • Specialized eating disorder and adolescent ward
       

  • iThemba – rape and trauma support

  • South African Depression and Anxiety Group

These experiences have exposed me to a wide variety of populations and difficulties which have taught me the necessary skills and approaches to facilitate personal growth and emotional development. This is achieved with all members of the family system and in an environment that promotes feelings of safety and comfort.

Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us
