Hi, I am Stephanie Oosthuizen

My inspiration for becoming a counselling psychologist was fuelled by the belief that human beings have a deep desire to be seen and to be heard by another.

 

I firmly believe that, when given a safe, collaborative and client focused space, an individual can find it within themself to accept, challenge or change aspects of their own life.

More about Stephanie

I completed my masters degree at the University of Pretoria and my internship at the therapy and assessment centre based at Epworth Children’s Village. My training and experience has equipped me to approach each client and therapeutic process from a systemic and integrative perspective, paying special attention to the unique aspects that make up each client’s life. I therefore believe that there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to therapy and that building a tailored treatment plan that is unique to you is more beneficial to meeting your needs.

I was fortunate enough, during my training, to encounter individuals from diverse backgrounds, which provided me with exposure to a variety of life stories and client struggles. Something that stood out for me throughout is that, within each individual, there exists the desire to be seen and accepted for who they are. I believe that in providing an accepting therapeutic space and focusing on building a strong therapeutic relationship, the therapy process can become one where genuine change can take place.

It is in playing and only playing, that the individual child or adult is able to be creative
