Registered counsellors perform basic counselling for people who are looking to improve their personal functioning. They can also assess to see if a client need more in depth psychological treatment and refer them to the appropriate practitioner. Registered councillors hold honours degrees in psychology.
I am a Registered Counselor practicing in the Northern Suburbs as well as in Stellenbosch. In the Northern Suburbs I form part of the Private Practice of Juazel Pieterse and in Stellenbosch I form part of a multi disciplinary team at the Stellenbosch Centre for Early Intervention.
I offer individual and group therapy with children, adolescents and adults as well as assessments and basic screenings. I make use of different therapeutic approaches according to the client's unique need and ability. I believe in a holistic approach when working with a client.
My role as a Registered Counselor focuses on prevention, promotion, empowerment and appropriate referrals. I specialize in the development and training of skills in order for the client to function independently and as healthy adults. I therefor focus on adjustment in different contexts and according to unique needs.
Examples of areas that I specialize in include: - trauma - bullying - divorce - social skills - loss/bereavement - study methods - conflict resolution - challenging behaviour in the classroom - abuse - adjustment problems
