Elonie de Klerk

A little about me

Hi, I’m Elonie. I am a woman, wife to my husband Deon for 15 years and mom of two awesome boys. When I’m not on the chair opposite my client/clients, I enjoy active and quite time with my family and friends – hiking a mountain, working out, camping, dancing, good wine and coffee.

My approach to therapy

As not only a psychologist, but a fellow human as well, I use my training, professional and personal life experience to guide clients to freedom and healing from past traumas.
As a trauma survivor and victor myself, I believe it’s possible to heal from any trauma and that we are all able to live the life we are worthy to live.

It can be daunting seeing a new therapist, therefore the most important factor is that you feel we are a good fit. Once the connection is established, we will work together to establish your best hopes for therapy. I follow an integrative, flexible approach, knowing that not every therapeutic modality works for every individual.

A little about me

Hi, I am Sonet. Single mother of teenage twins. I am always on the go. If I am not working, I cook, crochet, embroider and do all sorts of crafty stuff. As a family, we are very involved in sports, some more actively, others as the cheering squad.

Hi, I’m Marni. I love nature, trail running, mountain biking, bodyboarding, reading, playing, being messy and just trying to love the most I can.

My approach to therapy

Life has a way of throwing punches; some even knock us out, at the most unexpected times.
The last eight years of my life were marked by various losses, traumas and challenges. But at the same time, they have been filled with compassion from others, support from unexpected places and people, victories and miracles. I learned how to be vulnerable, how to ask for help, how to allow myself to feel the pain and how to be resilient.
But I couldn’t do it alone. I feel therapy plays an integral part of the process of allowing yourself to feel the full range of emotions, guiding you through them, and integrating experiences, good and bad, into your person.
Therapy and a relationship with your therapist can provide the safe place you need to allow yourself to experience the pain, heal, grow and overcome.

I know that for individuals, parents, adolescents and yes, even children, life can be very difficult at times and we may feel overwhelmed and at wits end. Therapy may sound like a strange and foreign concept for many, but what it is, is a wonderful space for safety, emotional healing and personal growth. I follow a therapeutic approach whereby I meet the client where he/she is at and we start by firstly building a safe and trusting relationship. I utilize a holistic approach where mind/body and soul are intertwined and all form part of the healing journey. Therapy is a wonderful chance to understand all the complexities of the self, grow, breathe and have some fun in between.
