Respect: This is the underlying value that guides all my therapeutic practice.
Whether debriefing a traumatised 7 year old, getting real with a recovering addict, sitting with a client in the midst of depression, or helping a bitter couple to remember what it means to be kind to each other; I am immensely respectful of the courage it takes to step towards a happier, healthier life, and expect that my clients respect the space we share when embarking on this journey.

I am a Counselling Psychologist registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa. I enjoy working with teenagers and adults of all ages addressing current challenges using a Solution Focused Approach. Particular areas of specialty are Trauma, Anxiety, Sport and Exercise Psychology and Weight Loss. My approach to therapy tends to be short-term and therefore extended time commitments for therapy are uncommon.

Tasneem van de Biezen
BA (Hons) MA (Counselling Psychology) (Wits)
I currently work primarily in private practice whilst also consulting to the University of Witwatersrand as a sessional lecturer and supervisor. In my private practice my work is specifically geared at helping adolescent and adult clients through a number of difficulties - whether individually, in a couple or even a family.
My belief is that the decision to enter therapy is courageous, yet sometimes difficult, and I aim to offer my clients a safe and supportive space so that they can allow themselves the time and patience needed to better understand themselves and their presenting concerns. My work in hospitals, community clinics and in the corporate sector has shown me the enormous value of self-insight and self- awareness and the positive impact that the development of these has in the various aspects of our lives. Our behaviour, thoughts and ways of relating, whilst well-intentioned, do not always lead to the desired outcome. I therefore offer therapy that aims to develop understanding of one's self so as to allow for deep, meaningful and enduring changes.
My areas of interest include:
Life adjustments and transitions,
Couple’s marital and relationship difficulties,
Bereavement and Grief,
Chronic Pain Management,
Personal growth and well-being,
Stress management and coping,
Managing relationships at work,
Supervision of student/intern psychologists and counsellors.
