I am a qualified modern therapist, academic and social researcher who believes in holistic counselling and healing. I am able to combine African spirituality with Western therapeutic approaches to ensure that my clients benefit from a combination of the two. I thrive in individual counselling, couple's counselling, divorce counselling, trauma counselling and family counselling, life coaching as well as corporate training, executive coaching, conflict resolution and mediation, change management and facilitation. I firmly believe that therapy should empower one to make decisions, develop new behavioural patterns and value systems.

Psychotherapy involves the formation of a therapeutic relationship, communicating, creating genuine dialogue and working to overcome problematic thoughts, feelings and behaviours. The goal of Psychotherapy is to bring about change in ones life - to optimise psychological well-being.

My name is Megan Vries. I am a clinical psychologist, based in Craighall Park. The majority of my work is with the adolescent and young adult population, including students and young professionals. This is a very challenging period as young people are experiencing cognitive, social, emotional and interpersonal changes. Adolescents may be under significantly more pressure than when they were younger, in that more is expected from them academically and socially.

“We are all a little broken but broken crayons still colour” Trent Shelton. This is one of my favourite quotes because it demystifies the myth that we should be perfect. We should not be perfect! In order to be true to ourselves, we need to see that we are a little broken. I completed my BArts, (Hons) Psychology, and MArts in Clinical Psychology degrees at WITS. My interests in psychotherapy are broad, as I enjoy forming therapeutic relationships with clients and facilitating a healing process. I am flexible in my working modality, as I have been exposed to various settings and different clientele.

I enjoy working with individuals who want to understand their minds and how their past and present may impact their futures. I focus on talk-based therapy by creating a harmonious and safe relationship to explore you and your life together. I don't work in a way that is directly focused on solving specific problems, and prefer to work with individuals happy to join me in a journey of healing and growth over a longer term. I am not a therapist who will tell you what to do, or give a lot of advice, and that may be best found with someone else if that is what you are looking for.

Dissociative Disorders (DID) Counsellors

How does therapy for dissociative disorders work?

Dissociation may be triggered by stress or other upsetting circumstances, and therapy can address the traumatic events at the core of an individual’s dissociation. Understanding why a person may dissociate can help the therapist and the individual come up with alternative methods of coping. A person with a dissociative disorder may get stuck on negative thinking, for example, and treatment like cognitive behavioural therapy is a gold standard for breaking such thinking. And dialectical behaviour therapy, for example, can help a person manage their anguish through better emotion regulation.

Which therapies are best for dissociative disorders?

Specific approaches used by professionals include cognitive behavioural, dialectical behaviour, psychodynamic, schema therapies, among others. Cognitive behavioural and dialectical behaviour therapies are two widely used therapies that can help individuals with painful memories and past traumas. These therapies work to integrate an individual's different identities into one person.

Are there specific medications for dissociation?

There are no specific medications prescribed for dissociative disorders. However, psychosis, depression, anxiety, and/or panic often co-occur in dissociative disorders. A psychiatrist may prescribe medications for any accompanying symptom which may include antipsychotics, antidepressants, or anti-anxiety drugs.

How often and how long are therapy sessions?

Like any type of therapy, sessions depend on the individual. Patients may see improvement within 15 to 20 sessions, at an average of 50 minutes per session, others may opt for 20 to 30 sessions over, perhaps, a six-month period. There are still other patients, especially those who have co-occurring conditions like depression and anxiety, who may need to continue sessions for up to 12 to 18 months.
