My experience with children, students and adults center around stress and resilience; mindfulness and compassion; trauma; chronic illness and pain.

These clients constantly inspire and teach me through their wisdom and capacity to deal with life and life’s difficulties.

The counselling I have done for patients, families and  personnel at Steve Biko Academic  Hospital and other public health organisations has been one of the richest journeys of my life.

I teach psychology and medical students, as well as mentor psychology students in the practical work they do in our  community projects.

In addition to facilitating mindfulness and compassion programmes, I train students from psychology and related fields in practical counselling skillsFull head horizontal line other way round

Lyn is a counselling psychologist in private practice. She works with individuals, adolescents, family and couples.

She practices from a collaborative, integrated perspective. When necessary, a mindfulness perspective is included. The benefits thereof cover a wide range of therapeutic concerns such as anxiety and recurrent depression.

She also runs 2-or-3 day creative workshops across South Africa which utilise conscious awareness and craft.

These are seriously fun days that ease the blockages and habitual patterns of “stuckness” in our day-today living. The 3-day weekend workshop is held on the beautiful Eastern Cape Coast at Blackrock.

Lyn is currently busy with her PhD in Consulting Psychology, researching the broader benefits of  mindfulness therapy.
