“If a man can understand the why of his being, he can live with almost any how”
– Abraham Maslow
A very good line from a very bad movie that has long since faded into distant memory was uttered by a psychologist when asked “If there was any one piece of advice that you could give that would fit most people and for the most kinds of problems, what would that be?”. To this, he replied:
“Figure out what you want and then find a way of asking for it”
When working with children, adolescents, couples or adults online, we use all the same approaches we would usually use in face-to-face therapy, the only difference being that therapy is done in the comfort and protection of your own space. During the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, all our psychologists have had to rely on using an online platform in order to provide quality treatment to our clients. We have found that clients report the same quality of treatment online than in face-to-face therapy. Online therapy is of course an individual preference, and if working online suits you for practical reason then we invite you to set up an online consultation with any of our psychologists at the centre or with our dedicated online psychologist, Carol Yan Quevauvilliers.
Expat Mental Health Support
The idea of living abroad can be magical… But sometimes being an expat in a foreign country isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Living in a new country can be a great experience – but it can also take a significant toll on your mental health and relationships.

She is happy to work with expats all over the world and in all different time zones. She is contracted to most major South African medical aids and can be contacted through Impact Therapy Centre for an appointment by scrolling down to our contact form.
