Luzanne LiversageCounselling Psychologist
I believe that each individual has a wealth of resources, talents, and skills that they may have lost sight of during the course of their own life journeys and difficulties. Or that they may not have noticed or valued these resources before. Thus each individual has the ability to change their reality and overcome life’s challenges. Therapy is therefore valued to facilitate this process to change and discover these abilities on the journey. Every client is unique and every life experience is unique, together we can walk your journey of healing and self-discovery.
I am an integrative Counselling Psychologist who works primarily from a Cognitive Behavioural Therapeutic (CBT) perspective. I have international training through the Beck Institute, based in Philadelphia, USA, and am a Beck accredited Clinician. I have also completed training in Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, accredited by The Albert Ellis Institute, based in New York City. However, I incorporate and make use of the therapeutic modalities that would best fit my client and enable them to develop to their full potential. I have a passion for working with a range of clients of all ages and backgrounds, addressing a wide range of difficulties. I have a specific interest in working with anxiety and anxiety-related disorders but have experience in working with a range of difficulties.
I obtained my undergraduate and Honours Degrees in Psychology with distinction at Rhodes University in Grahamstown. I then completed my Master’s degree in Community Counselling Psychology at the University of Witwatersrand followed by an internship at The Centre for Psychological Services and Career Development (PsyCaD). I am currently completing my doctorate degree in Psychology through the University of Witwatersrand. My training and work experience has allowed me to develop a significant skill set, along with therapeutic techniques to accomplish effective therapeutic results. I have also contributed to articles for some of South Africa’s leading magazines and been a guest speaker on leading radio stations. I also provide therapeutic training and supervision to psychologists in CBT and work with Kids from a CBT perspective.
