Hi, I am Dianna Butt

Specialist Counsellor

Registered with the Council for Counsellors


Therapy is a personal journey that is unique to the individual. Helping families and adolescents set and achieve life-changing goals is my passion. I work from a perspective that the client is the expert of their live with my role being to create a safe space, identify strengths, and partner with the client on their journey. I value differences and draw from a pool of psychological theories in a way that suits specific client needs. The relationship I build with clients is the foundation of my counselling approach.

More about Dianna

I trained for my Masters of Science degree in Marriage, Couple and Family Counselling at the Walden University in the United States of America. I was able to do my practicum and internship within the South African context. I was privileged to have 3 supervisors during this process, allowing me to get insight from both the USA and SA cultures. I am currently in the process of converting my degree into the equivalent psychologist qualification in South Africa and have registered to begin my Phd. 

I have 15 years teaching experience that facilitates holistic knowledge in the well being of the adolescent. I am currently a counsellor at a high school in KZN. 

My masters degree focused on understanding the person, the couple and the family and how the dynamics of each relationship can impact the next. Because of this in-depth experience and expertise I can work with the individual or the whole family depending on the issue at hand. I enjoy working from a Solution Focused approach and will integrate this with other theories and skills depending on the person in front of me.

I look forward to working you, and being part of your journey of growth and change. 

Dianna speaks about unhealthy defensiveness within relational conflict

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
