Hi, I am Lisa Hirschowitz
 

Counselling Psychologist

PS 0138258 / PR 0729930

I believe that one's childhood experiences play an important role in shaping who we become as adults. If feelings have not been processed, or appropriately addressed, a maladaptive blueprint for future behaviour can be created. During therapy, I guide and support my clients to process these difficult feelings and create self-awareness.

I am a registered Counselling Psychologist with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA), as well as the Board of Healthcare Funders (BHF).

During my years of study, I developed a passion for psychology which led to my working and volunteering at many organisations. I have worked with the elderly, those suffering from severe mental illness, young adults, adolescents, abused children, recovering addicts and members of the Queer community- among others.

I strive to carry out my duties in an ethical and compassionate manner and want my clients to feel that they are in a safe and non-judgemental space; no topic is considered taboo in therapy.

I take an integrative approach to therapy which allows me to see the individual as a whole; as each client brings different challenges to therapy, the most appropriate techniques are used to affect change. I believe that one's childhood experiences play an important role in shaping who we become as adults. If feelings have not been processed, or appropriately addressed, a maladaptive blueprint for future behaviour can be created. During therapy, I guide and support my clients to process these difficult feelings and create self-awareness. With awareness and a greater sense of understanding, there can be behavioural change and emotional release.

Whatever you are not changing, you are choosing.
