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 and 2 training in the Gottman Method Couple's Therapy and am currently registered for level 3.

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.

Buyani Dlomo

I am a registered Clinical Psychologist with the HPCSA. I have a preference for working with a psychodynamic-orientated approach. However, I understand that clients have different needs and goals, therefore, I endeavour to tailor my treatment accordingly. As such, I am comfortable with and  have experience in working with a variety of modalities such as CBT, DBT and Supportive psychotherapy.

I aim to provide a space for the client where they feel heard and understood. A space  that allows for trust, vulnerability and transparency. Most importantly a space where a client and a therapist can think together. As a psychotherapist I seek to facilitate an environment that is both holding and containing, a space where the client can be their most authentic self. 

I  provide individual and group psychotherapy for adults and adolescents, as well as couples psychotherapy. I also enjoy providing play therapy for children (7+). Through my training, I gained a lot of experience in working with individual adults and couples around issues such as; depression, anxiety and other mood disorders as well as personality disorders. I developed a keen interest in working with children and adolescents, around issues such as depression, anxiety problems and coping with traumatic events.
