Confidential, safe & non judgemental care
Counselling and Psychotherapy
Dr. Egan-Sage's counselling approach is client centred. This is based on the belief that each client has the solution to their own problems within themselves, and that they intuitively know what life-changes they need to make to facilitate their growth towards self-actualisation and contentment. Elmarie facilitates the client in this fascinating and liberating journey. The therapeutic relationship Elmarie provides for her clients is empowering, respectful and optimistic. She facilitates:
- One-to-one counselling
- Couples counselling
- Family counselling
Groups can be a very powerful vehicle for change. The support and encouragement of group participants can have a powerfully positive effect on individual group members. Groups are carefully chosen with set goals, e.g., self-esteem groups, anger management groups, mindfulness groups.
Once-off or continuous: for instance, parents who suspect that they or their child has a psychological, social, emotional or educational difficulty, and who need direction and support in getting the appropriate help.
People who wish to gain more enjoyment from life as "life is not a rehearsal" and they want to flourish rather than merely function.
