Yvonne Chilimanzi

I am a registered Counselling Psychologist. I have experience in working with individual adults, adolescents and couples around issues such as anxiety, depression, trauma, stress, bereavement and relationship difficulties. I have a special interest in couple's/marriage therapy and counselling. As such, I use the Gottman Method of couple's therapy in my work with couples. I have completed level 1 training in the Gottman Method Couple's Therapy and am currently registered for level 2.

My general approach to treatment is guided by my client’s needs, however, I primarily work from a narrative orientation. This means, I work collaboratively with my clients to externalize their problems or challenges, helping them to deconstruct the problematic story so we can begin to reconstruct it. This allows the client to identify their innate skills, talents, strengths and resources so they may call upon them more consciously when needed.

Brenny Maruma 

I am a dedicated counselling psychologist with passion for promoting mental health. I am
devoted to helping my clients as they navigate their social, vocational, and personal challenges
in order to lead more meaningful and fulfilling lives. My scope of practice includes, but not
limited to work with anxiety, depression, grief and bereavement, relationship and marital
issues, trauma, adjustment to life challenges as well as career counselling and development.

I aim to empower my clients to be their true self and to reach their goals by confronting and overcoming the challenges in their lives. I am flexible in my working modality, as I have been trained in a wide variety of therapeutic framework. However,  I tend to favour a psychodynamic approach to psychotherapy, which involves exploring clients' difficulties indepth, in a way that has the potential to create profound and sustained change. I use both short term and long-term approaches depending on the need at the time. I enjoy working
with adolescents (14+) as well as adults both individually or in group settings.
