Many adolescents and adults are in search of their life purpose and ideal career. In today's ever changing fast pace it is essential to find the best fit and live a meaningful life to contribute to society.

A means to facilitate these processes is an objective assessment measure through psychometric evaluation and guidance.
I am a qualified Counsellor, registered with the HPCSA and the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy).

I have run a private practise since 2007 and I am fully bilingual (English and Afrikaans). I offer both face to face and online counselling.
In this modern world we live in, we are exposed and overwhelmed by what we hear and see on a daily basis. Our "normal" now are days filled with violence, crime, trauma, stress, depression and burnout from long working hours and a rushed lifestyle. Our coping mechanisms are now drugs, alcohol and sex. All destructive. When we reach out and ask for help it is not a sign of weakness, but a sign of strength. It is a way to learn new coping skills and how to use them when facing our world and the challenges in it.
In my practice I work with individuals, families and groups who present with various struggles/ difficulties.

The human condition is such that we often have more questions than answers. In this Digital Age we are, all too often, fed generic solutions to our most intimate sufferings through well-intentioned memes or self-help blogs. Psychotherapy is far more than just talking - It is an invitation to navigate your way back to your most authentic self through healing, transformation, and ultimately, growth. It is a space of shared vulnerability and through your inner work will reveal aspects you likely did not know existed. If you have the desire to explore more deeply the inner workings of your mind then I would love to work with you.

My name is Mariska van der Meulen and I offer quality counselling at affordable rates. I chose the name Meraki as it really speaks to me about the supportive, non judgmental environment in which healing takes place. It is a Greek word meaning "to do something with soul, creativity or love; to put something of yourself in your work". As a counsellor my aim is to create a safe, compassionate and understanding space where we can explore solutions and find new empowering ways of dealing with challenges.
Following my internship I was fortunate enough to gain experience in a number of contexts. This made me appreciate clients from many different backgrounds with varied issues. The services I offer in my practice are aimed at adults who have a strong need to address whatever challenges they are facing in a way that will allow them to live a more meaningful and authentic life.
I am Precious Ramasodi, a therapist and a passionate advocate for self-awareness and self-love. My desire for every person that I work with is to provide a safe environment in which they are free to express themselves without fear of judgement.
As a clinician and psychotherapist, I see people as unique beings who are trying their best in life. Challenges come because they find themselves stuck and disconnected to the world. In this way, ineffective patterns are formed between themselves and their systems (i.e. families, social, culture, religion, work, etc.). My initial goal is to understand my clients/patients from their point of view without making assumptions. From there, we move together to create a context for change. Treatment of disorders includes Depression, anxiety, trauma-related disorders, Grief/loss, relationship problems, and others.
