Our sexuality is very sensitive but important part of our lives. When we are comfortable with our own sexuality, life seems to flow smoothly. However, when our sexuality is a source of conflict in out lives, life seems to be full of hurdles and obstacles.
Relationships with loved ones can provide immense joy and happiness. These relationships can also be a source of pain and confusion. Many relationships today lack clear communication between loved ones.
Parental counselling is whatever you as a parent need it to be. It often involves dealing with stress in a more effective manner, so that you are less likely to feel overwhelmed by everything going on.
Life can be traumatic at times, and often people do not understand the effect of trauma on one’s coping abilities. Society has a limited understanding of what trauma is, and often cannot understand why some people are traumatised by some events.
In addition to trauma and relationship counselling, I offer counselling for a variety of situations where an objective outsider is beneficial for overcoming certain situations.
Tools for Having "The Talks" is a 3 day workshop series for parents, sharing some important tools and information for having age appropriate conversations with your children about bodies, touching, safety and sex.
We all want our children to remain innocent for as long as possible. Being innocent and being ignorant are not the same thing. Without the opportunity for fact based conversations, ignorance increases our children's risks. These workshops help parents to distinguish between the two, where we discuss ways to maintain our children's innocence, while opening up lines of communication between parents and children around these often silent topics.
Book your space at an upcoming series - or host your own - Where we discuss how to be more comfortable with talking about these things.

Sexuality comes and goes as a talking point in the media. Most recently earlier in the year with the Grace Bible Church situation. So, I thought we could examine our understandings of what sexuality/sexual orientation is. I don’t want to get stuck on definitions of LGBA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Asexual) identities. Rather, I want us[…]
It has been a while since I wrote a blog that wasn’t about work. There are a few reasons for this, but mainly, it is because I have been really busy with Masters, and then with Workshops. All this is suddenly coming to an end. Tomorrow I run the last workshop for this series (which[…]
When I tell people about my workshop series for parents (and caregivers and teachers), there is always positive feedback, and comments about how the workshops are such a great way to help parents deal with awkward questions kids have. Sure, social etiquette plays a role in the positive feedback I get, but there are so[…]
Thinking, questioning, practice and feedback: Some of the reasons Tools for Having “The Talks, yes plural” is 3 separate workshops
I often get asked why my Workshop Series Tools for having “The Talks, yes plural” is three separate workshops, instead of one long workshop. This is a valid question. It hints at the logistics of having to find babysitters for three separate days, even if only for a few hours each. I get it. I really do.[…]
Recently I came across this wonderful Tedx Talk about Rape Culture. One of her statements really hit home, and I want to tell you a personal story about this particular myth. These words have been running through my mind for a few days now, so I hope that what follows makes sense. Her statement is:[…]
Have you wondered if your sex is ‘normal’? People often ask me if the sex they are having is ‘normal’. This seems to be something that many people are concerned about. If you want my opinion, giving and receiving pleasure with one’s body is perfectly normal. That is what sex is supposed to be all[…]
How often have you thought to yourself: “I’m sure I listened when my parents shouted at me, why is my child not listening when I shout”? Often, shouting at our children when they have done something wrong does not prevent that behaviour in the future. In most cases, the yelling is a last resort, for[…]
I get asked a lot about what happens in my Anger Management sessions. The answer is a difficult one, because every one experiences anger in a different way. Now I am talking about anger, the go-to feeling that most people use when they are having a negative experience of sorts. I am not talking about[…]
I have a passion for providing counselling for parents who have children who are, for lack of a better term, ‘different’. What does different mean in this context? It can mean anything, from finding out that your child has Down Syndrome, Autism or any other kind of special need. It can mean that the doctors[…]
Relationships can be amazing. In fact, they often are. They can make people feel like they belong somewhere, and that they are loved. Relationships can make you feel understood, sexy, and desirable. However, relationships can also cause heartache and a general feeling of dissatisfaction. Misunderstandings can create tension, and often lead to arguments and fights.[…]
Today there has been a lot of media coverage for the #stoprape awareness campaign in remembrance of the Anene Booysen tragedy. And I am conflicted by it. I am glad that it is being covered by the media, as something that is horrific and needs to end. But I don’t like people saying that South African’s are[…]
For sexuality and intimacy counselling, I see many clients who are embarrassed by their concerns. Often, I am the first person whom these people talk to about their sexual problems. One client described the effect’s of premature ejaculation on his self-esteem. What made this particular client stand out for me, was the way he said his[…]
