Dear Clients and Colleagues
Firstly, we would like to thank you for your ongoing support throughout the years.
We would like to share some important information with you.
As of 01 October 2023, we will be decentralising but still working together as a team.
What does this mean? From October each therapist will be practicing from their individual practices in different areas.
Herewith the location and contact information of each therapist:
Despite this change, we will be here to serve you, continuing your therapeutic journey with you from our new locations.
With warm regards and heartfelt gratitude,
The Minke Saayman Child and Family Centre Team
Individual Child Therapy
Play therapy is generally employed with children aged 3 – 12 years and provides a way for them to express their experiences and feelings through a natural, self-guided, self-healing process, as a vehicle for them to know and accept themselves.
This is a comprehensive assessment of a child (0 – 18yrs), to assess the child’s experiences and perception of his/her social and emotional functioning.
Trauma creates a feeling of anxiety that can last for years. Trauma can manifest in internalising symptoms such as irritability or emotional outbursts, sleep and / or appetite disturbances and psychosomatic problems. We use a wide variety of techniques to address trauma symptoms and to help the client to cope with these symptoms.
Therapy for Adults
We offer individual counselling, trauma debriefing, stress management and more to adults.
Parenting Skills Training
Parenting can be challenging and is one of the most difficult tasks parents have to deal with. We offer a parenting skills training programme where we teach parents practical skills in corrective discipline, understanding the developmental phases of children and managing common childcare problems.
Attachment Therapy is used to strengthen the bond between a child and a parent. It focuses in building trust in the child toward the parent. In attachment we use eye-contact, touch, movement, smiles and sharing to form a more secure attachment relationship between parent and child.
Family therapy is based on the premise that all psychological problems reflect a dysfunction in the family system. Family therapy seeks to achieve a balance between the needs of the individual and those of the larger extended family system.
