My name is Andrea Turner and I am a registered counsellor with a private practice based in Claremont.

I use a person centered approach to help my clients process their view of the world with the goal of clarifying how their unique experiences, both conscious and unconscious, shape their views.

The American psychologist Carl Rogers developed the person centered approach which:
“tries to understand how the client sees himself or herself”

I use various tools in my practice to help my clients explore and discover their sense of self. These tools include psychotherapies like cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and solution focused therapy (SFT). Furthermore I am qualified as a BWRT® therapist which allows my clients a ‘core of privacy’.

My services

I help my clients with a variety of issues and I believe strongly in psycho-social education.

This means that I spend time with my clients explaining why certain things happen so that it makes sense as to why they feel the way they do.

This approach allows my clients to make decisions about which therapies they would like to use in order to move forward.

Family counselling
Guidance and career counselling
Mental health counselling
Grief and loss counselling
Support for the elderly
Victim empowerment
Support for mental health issues
Couples counselling
Individual and group work

What is BWRT therapy?

‘BWRT®’ stands for ‘BrainWorking Recursive Therapy®’, a model of psychology and psychotherapy created by UK professional therapist, Terence Watts, MCGI.

Like many other modern therapies, it allows a ‘core of privacy’ so that you do not have to divulge anything you would rather not talk about – in fact, the practitioner only needs to know how you feel and how you would prefer to feel instead.

BWRT® is a completely new and different therapy based on the latest discoveries about the way the brain works and how it affects our moods, behaviour and emotions.

Only Certified Practitioners have been trained to deliver BWRT® and all have to adhere to a strict ethical code.

About me

I did my Undergraduate Degree in Health and Social Services at UNISA followed by an Honours Degree in Psychology at SACAP.

In addition to my private practice, I do a lot of work in the community dealing with trauma and violence with a focus on victim support.

I work with Community Cohesion, an NGO based in Hout Bay, Ocean View, Masiphumelele, Fish Hoek, Victoria Hospital Forensic Unit Catchment area and Woodstock. I am also a victim assistance officer at the Victoria Hospital Thuthuzela Care Centre (TCC) where I support rape and domestic violence survivors as a liaison to the relevant social and law enforcement agencies.

I regularly attend and participate in BWRT® seminars and workshops.
