Individual counselling – 2016
1. I found the therapy extremely valuable and eye opening. With Cornelia’s guidance I was able to delve into my deepest emotions and I discovered some unhealthy thought patterns along the way.
2. The therapy assisted me in processing the abrupt ending of a long and serious romantic relationship and to avoid carrying issues of mistrust into future relationships. I now also have a better understanding of how my own psyche works, what causes me to think the way that I do and which elements in my life trigger certain responses. Although it was often painful I feel that the therapy is the start of a very rewarding journey of self-discovery which will continue throughout my life.
3. I will definitely refer my friends and family to you with absolute confidence in your professionalism and your professional abilities.
Premarital Weekend workshop – 2016
A big thank you to yourself and Marcel for this past weekend. It was such an uplifting experience and we really came away feeling closer and eager to work at our relationship.
I realised last night that the biggest thing for me was realising it was not about asking you to help us solve our various issues, but for you to teach us how to work at solving them ourselves.
I will be reading the manual from this week, just to help everything stick in my mind! I actually think there are benefits to doing it week by week, because you have more time between sessions to reflect and practice the techniques.
Have a wonderful week and look forward to seeing you in July 2017.
Grief counselling – 2016
What was your therapeutic experience like?
Helped with grief and gave a comfortable environment, in which to share thoughts, provide methods for coping and resolution.
Therapy has changed my life. It has given me tools in which to help understand situations and methods in which to resolve. I will refer to Cornelia.
Couple counselling – 2016
Tammy Langtry and Sifiso Radebe (Relationiship counselling – March 2015)
“We went to Cornelia as we were going through a difficult time and we weren’t sure how to move forward. As a young couple in our twenties, we were a bit skeptical as we felt counseling is something for married couples but Cornelia made us feel very comfortable to share and helps guide us with great problem solving and unbiased responses. As young people we aren’t taught how to build successful relationships with communication and compromise while trying to find yourself and grow. Cornelia is very mindful of your individual experiences and has helped us grow as individuals and as a couple. Our relationship is much stronger and we have built a solid base for our relationship, based on trust and communication. Cornelia has also given us great tools to work on things outside of the sessions. Cornelia is a very loving and kind person who is passionate about working with couples and seeing you work together. Her work and effort is invaluable.”

In what way do you feel more prepared for marriage?
“DVD oor seks was goed bv. “Romance the girl” en ek het geleer om nie bang te wees om te praat nie, openness. ”
“Ek hou van die kommunikasie-kanale wat nou oper is in ons verhouding.”
“I am now more aware of what is important in marriage, how to stay connected and how to keep my partner connected.”
“I feel more prepared, because I know that differences between partners are normal, that our marriage has seasons and that it is okay to experience these differences and not to necessarily run away from the marriage.”
“I feel that I am more prepared to handle situations such as anger better.”
