NICOLE JANSEN VAN RENSBURG

 

Education and Training

I completed my M.A in Clinical Psychology at NWU (cum luade). I completed my internship at Weskoppies Psychiatric hospital and Community Service at Department of Correctional Services. I believe in adjusting my understanding and approach to psychotherapy to fit the individual I work with, adhering to an integrative stance towards intervention. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process with the therapeutic relationship at its core.

I have a specific interest in working with individuals with the goal of increasing awareness and insight into our dynamics of self and our interactions with others, in doing so fostering a greater sense of wellbeing and self acceptance.

I have worked with:

  • Mood disorders

  • Personality disorders

  • Trauma and stressor related disorders

  • Anxiety Disorders

  • Gender identity and sexuality

  • Substance use disorders

  • Psychotic spectrum disorders

  • Relationship challenges

  • Phase of life challenges

  • Post partum challenges and adjustment
