Councelling is a purposeful, private conversation

arising from the intention of one person to reflect on and resolve a problem in living, and the willingness of another person to assist in that endeavour.

    It is a collaboration between the counsellor and the client to ensure that the therapeutic process is of the highest importance to both parties.

    The values of LWC is authenticity, honesty, empathy, mutual respect and trust. Without the mutual agreement in the therapeutic relationship, change cannot take place and growth will not be evident.

    Counselling is a safe space. It cannot be emphasised enough the value that is placed on CONFIDENTIALITY. Every client has the right to privacy, therefore, anything shared throughout the therapeutic process will stay between the counsellor and the client.

    In rare instances, the confidentiality clause can be overwritten by the South African law. These instances would be in the case that the client is a danger to him/herself or others, when a minor (a person under 18 years) is abused, either sexually or physically, or in the case where the counsellor is subpoenaed and legally required to provide the court with information.

The role of a Counsellor?

Registered Counsellors are psychological practitioners who perform psychological screening, basic assessment and psychological interventions with individuals and groups, aimed at enhancing personal functioning. In that their function is to prevent, promote, intervene, and appropriately refer.

Counselling Services


Woman Care


Women often struggle with their self-image, finding their purpose, and setting boundaries within their relationships. In Women Care, you will discover your true-self without the different masks that you like to wear to keep people out.

With guidance from myself (counsellor, wife, daughter, and friend) you will learn the following:


  • Self-reflecting
  • Improving your self-confidence
  • Setting boundaries
  • Conflict resolution techniques
  • Building healthy supportive relationships
  • Making meaning of a mess (something seen as a failure or mistake)

Individual Counselling


I provide the necessary support to clients in the following areas:


  • Abuse (emotional, physical, sexual and verbal)
  • Anxiety
  • Crises Intervention
  • Grief and Bereavement
  • Stress Management and coping skills
  • Troubled Relationships

Family Counselling


I provide the necessary support to families in the following areas:

  • Communication styles are developed and communication amongst family members are improved.
  • Healthy individual and group boundaries are established in counselling.
  • Listening skills and conflict resolution skills are developed to create an understanding amongst and deepen the relationships of the family.
  • Guidance in working through life changing events such as divorce or the loss of a family member.


Therefore, family counselling is really creating a space where big changes amongst a collective of family members can take place with mediation and guidance from a counsellor to achieve the goal of operating as a healthy and balanced family.


Teenage Connect


Adolescents today face various challenges that older generations did not encounter simply due to the way our world have changed. Adolescents often struggle to convey what they are experiencing to their parents or familial figures, not wanting to get into trouble, disappoint or be a 'burden' to them. 

I provide the necessary support to clients in the following areas:


  • Abuse (emotional, physical, sexual and verbal)
  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Bullying
  • Developing socio-emotional skills
  • Grief and Bereavement
  • Improve their communication skills
  • Navigating relationships
  • Stress management

Trauma Debriefing and Counselling


Trauma is your emotional response to a terrible and life changing event or a series of events that are marked by a sense of horror, serious injury, feeling helpless, or a threat of serious injury or death. However, individuals may also experience day to day situations as traumatic events since trauma is an individual response to external circumstances.

I provide the necessary support to families in the following areas:


  • Abuse (emotional, physical, sexual and verbal)
  • Anxiety and Panic Attacks
  • Families with one member facing terminal illness
  • Grief and Bereavement
  • Individuals facing terminal illness
  • Individual involved in a serious accident
  • Sexual assault
  • Witnessing a death

Lifeskills Workshops (Psycho-education)



Organisations need to concern themselves with the wellbeing of their employees. When people feel appreciated and valued, they automatically invest in what they do and in the company they work for.

How do we cultivate a healthy company culture? The leadership of an organisation together with the individuals employed by the organisation would benefit from attending psycho-educational workshops were soft skills such as communication skills, conflict resolution skills, anger management techniques and socio-emotional development are taught and put into practice.

These workshops are customised around the organisation’s needs but have a strong focus on:


  • Conflict resolution
  • Effective communication
  • Setting boundaries (Professional and Personal)
  • Self-care and avoiding burnout
  • Individual growth


Virtual counselling makes it possible for clients to make use of mental health services through the use of technology to facilitate live video calls. The client has the option to receive counselling from a convenient location with the counsellor via platforms such as Skype, Zoom or WhatsApp, without having to travel to attend their scheduled counselling appointment.  

How does this process work?

  • The new client makes contact with the counsellor to schedule an appointment.

  • Before the first session can take place, the client needs to complete the New Client Intake Form (which covers personal information such as residential address, contact and medical aid details) and sign the Consent Form (a written agreement between the client and counsellor that refers to client confidentiality, payment procedures and participation in counselling).

  • As confirmation for the scheduled appointment, an upfront fee of R480 should be paid by EFT to Living Waters Counselling.

  • Once the necessary documentation and payment has been received, the counselling process can start.

The heart behind Living Waters Counselling

All my life I have been observing people around me, noticing their behaviour and listening to what they say and don’t say, and learning as much about them through their body language. I have found that people are like puzzle pieces to me, I cannot stop paying attention to the detail of their lives until every piece forms the entire masterpiece.

Having a heart for people and seeing how traumatic events can disrupt the lives of individuals and families, I have walked into the calling of being a trauma counsellor within and outside office hours.

Knowing who you are gives you the confidence to know your strengths and limitations and helps you to navigate this life to your full potential. At LWC, the counsellor’s mission for the therapeutic process is to see clients walk out of the counselling space better off than when they entered it.

At the heart of counselling is the desire to help people recover from and overcome adversities that life has thrown their way, to work through their past hurts, identifying dysfunctional patterns in their life that are being repeated, gaining the skills they need to be more resilient to the challenges they face and to live life to its fullest.

The ultimate goal would be to see clients looking after themselves emotionally, mentally and physically, who have secure supportive relationships, are able to manage their stress levels efficiently and being confident in who they are so that they can navigate the ups and downs of life’s journey.



I am a daughter of our Heavenly King and will always place Him first. I have been part of an incredible family, consisting of my parents and a brother that I love dearly.

Change is the only constant in life that we can expect, which is why we need to be adaptable to grow into changes, even the unexpected ones.

Over the last couple of years my mother passed away, I gained a beautiful sister (in-law) and became a wife to my loving husband that came with the salt of the earth family. Family is everything to me, even the adopted ones.

I also believe that we cannot always choose what happens to us or control our circumstances but we certainly can decide how we are going to respond to life and its events and the way in which we interact with our environment.

Like most people I have seen my share of traumatic life events, which I believe gives me a deeper understanding of what my clients might be going through and insight into which therapeutic methods and tools will suit their needs when they step into my counselling space.


  • Authenticity
  • Mutual Respect
  • Empathy
  • Honesty


I have obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology (Registered Counsellor) at MGI now known as the Pearson Institute of Higher Education. I am registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) and have been practicing as a Registered Counsellor for the past few years with a focus on trauma and family relationships. I have worked with various schools and NGOs, a medical practice and in corporate environments, each bringing its own set of challenges that expanded my counselling skills.

I use an Eclectic (Integrative) approach to counselling. This approach allows me to draw on multiple theoretical orientations and techniques which enables me to use the most effective methods available to address each individual client’s needs. It includes Cognitive Behavioural therapy (CBT), Solution-focused Brief Therapy, Narrative Therapy and Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT).
