Reinette Steyn - Clinical Psychologists - Milnerton, Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa

Approach & Qualifications:

I am Clinical Psychologist and have been counselling and coaching people since 1978.  I offer Psychotherapy, Counselling, and Life Skills Coaching to adults, adolescents, couples and groups. 

My aim is sincere Care and to Empower people to rediscover their healthy selves and live victoriously, as effectively as possible, and according to your highest values. 

I am highly ethical in all my dealings and my spiritual calling is to help people in the most effective manner to become liberated from their history, beliefs and habits, so that they can be truly happy and successful in all aspects of their lives without undue delay.

My original training was in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, including Self Psychology and Jungian Psychotherapy.  I felt the need to help people more rapidly and later focussed on generating effective outcomes through a case-by-case individually-created Integrative Psychotherapy. 

This approach incorporates the latest findings in Neuropsychology and Positive Psychology, with psychodynamic-based insight, as well as tools from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Rational-Emotive Therapy, Hypnosis, Trauma De-briefing [including EMDR], Systems Theory and Consciousness Field.  I am also trained in Health Psychology and Neuropsychological Assessment [adults and adolescents].

I am a member of the Unashamedly Ethical organisation and committed to upholding high ethical standards in all approaches and all practice.

For Trauma-debriefing specialization, please see for further information.

I also qualified in Hypnotherapy [5 levels] through the South African Society for Clinical Hypnosis [SASCH] and use mainly Ericksonian and Ego-State hypnosis approaches.

Hypnosis is an excellent tool natural to all of us.  It is NOT mind control but a wonderful facility all people are Created with, to help us improve functioning and mind states in every conceivable problem area:

  • health, immune functions, hormonal functions [incl PMS, menopause, infertility, sexual functioning], skin problems, post-surgery recovery, preventing unpleasant side effects from e.g. chemotherapy, pain management, etc.;
  •  depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, panic attacks, phobias, OCD, etc.;
  • addictions and stuck habits of any kind;
  •  creativity, problem-solving, self-esteem, confidence;
  • stress, burn-out, exhaustion, negative expectations, anger, abandonment and other fears, etc.

Please see for more information. 

Number of sessions:

My approach is Integrative, holistic, and solution-focussed, and is individually planned according to presenting problems, and client needs and resources.  The number of sessions is similarly determined.  Single-event traumas, no matter how severe [e.g. a car smash or rape], need relatively few debriefing sessions – often just 1-2 if EMDR is used, but chronic trauma [such as rejection or verbal abuse by a parent] requires more sessions.  If clients use the skills demonstrated even long-term harm can be debriefed in under a year.

I have also worked in Employees Wellness systems for more than a decade, specialising there in solution-focussed intervention, which is useful for clients who cannot afford many sessions.

In the first session, after listening to your problem-description and history, and assessing your resources, I will advise you about a recommended course of treatment, and discuss alternatives.  You can see why I prefer an 80 min first session, in order to help you effectively.  Generally it is advisable to plan for at least 6 weekly sessions. Some disorders like panic attacks can usually remit within 2-3 treatments, but you may need further intervention to address the original causes.

Couples/marital therapy usually requires longer-term commitment.
