Who do psychologists in Cape Town assist?

Children and teenagers

Psychotherapy for children and adolescents is quite different from the treatment provided for adults. Children aren’t able to easily express complex emotions caused by events in their life or their living environment. The best form of psychology for younger children is play therapy.  Adolescents typically experiment with different identities to find themselves and it is often a time of both disorientation and discovery.  Due to the challenges posed by this stage of life between 13 and 19 years old, teenagers are also more at risk for developing other problems such as anxiety and depression.


We offer a large number of psychologists in Cape Town that assist adults with all forms of emotional needs such as effective methods of dealing with extreme post-traumatic stress, coping with difficult situations, effective management of conflict, and guidance with communications skills for daily struggles.  Clinical psychologists purpose of treatment is to assist you with your personal growth, increasing your self-awareness and self-knowledge, whilst optimising your sense of fulfilment with life and your level of daily functioning.
