Purpose of counseling- is a process of talking about and working through your personal problems with a counsellor. The counsellor helps you to address your problems in a positive way by helping you to clarify the issues, explore options, develop strategies and increase self-awareness

 

Below you will find the services I offer for adults and adolescents

Adult

Remember how when we were young how all we ever wanted was to be grown up? And guess what? We now wish differently as growing up is seeming harder than we thought it would be. Maybe you are feeling stuck and needing tools and techniques to help you find your thought and way again.

Maybe you’ve had a rough time and your mood has become low and you’d like some help lifting yourself up. Maybe your relationship has had some challenges and you’ve run out of options and you are in need of a listening ear. Come talk. I will listen. And help create a climate where you can examine your thoughts, feelings and actions and be empowered to find the best solutions for you.

Adolescent

Adolescence is a time of both opportunities and risks- like opportunity to find your identity or risks of identity confusion. Either way I remember it being a time of high stress, anxiety and peer pressure.

Teenage life is full of all sorts of pressure, and I’d be happy to empower your children with the knowledge to make good choices in their own lives and acquire/adapt skills to create healthy relationship with themselves, their families, and their friends

What kind of areas could we work on?

Anxiety, Adjustment to life changes, Anger management, Behavioural difficulties, Communication problems, Coping skills, Depression, Fear, Grief, Goal setting, Marital difficulties, Parenting, Personal growth, Relationship challenges, Self-esteem and self- confidence, Stress management, Peer pressure/Bullying, Social difficulties, Time management, Trauma

My Approach

Counselling is never a one-size-fits-all approach, and our first consultation will usually be a chat about where you are and where you’d like to be. It is so important that you find someone you can connect with and to whom you can speak openly and honestly. We then decide whereto from here, and mutually agree a general plan to get there.

My unique counselling and teaching style caters to adolescents and adults, providing a tailored approach to suit their needs.

These days ‘adulting’ has become so real to many of us in ways we never imagined. Therefore being able to connect with adults at their various life stages and assist them navigate through their thoughts, emotions and choices with tools and techniques that will help make their life journey better manageable, makes my day in counselling.

On the other hand I have found the adolescent phase to be quite inspiring to me, it being a phase that can be challenging as one tries to find who they are (identity) and figure out where one’s going (purpose). I experience so many adolescents to be teachable and inquisitively eager to learn, and this makes me enjoy engaging with them and guiding where I can.

I met Lindelwa at a time in my life when I was hopeless and hurting. I believe she's an individual that has opened herself to be used mightily by the Lord in reaching the lost, hopeless and broken. I've had mainstream counseling and a bit of Christian counseling before, but never have I ever felt so compelled to actually work on myself like I did when I was with Lindelwa. The most valuable lesson I learnt during my sessions was the importance of having a relationship with the Holy Spirit and learning to forgive.

When I started seeing Sis' Lindelwa a couple of months ago my soul was in so much distress, I had lost myself, I was just waking up everyday to do my daily "routine" and go back to sleep. I thank God for Sis Lindelwa's counsel in my life, her counsel and prayers pulled me through my shame, it pulled me through my disgrace, it pulled me through and helped me find my sanity back, I did not only find my "inner peace" but I also found myself again. I now smile not because things are perfect but because I am at peace and through the journey I had also obtained so much wisdom and have also grown spiritually.

Words can't begin to explain how grateful I am for you. Thank you so much for partnering with me, guiding me and teaching me.
I have laughed, cried and laughed some more throughout our sessions. Most importantly, I have transformed and evolved into a powerful woman who is rooted in Christ more than ever!!!
Thank you, thank you... Thank you
