Dr Genevieve Marais

Counselling Psychologist and Psychotherapist Online, DPsych DipPsych BA

I am a doctor of counselling psychology and psychotherapy.  I have been working in the field of psychology since 2007 and in private practice since 2012.  I work with young people and adults on a one-to-one basis.  My integrative model allows me to draw on a varied range of psychological perspectives and tailor treatment plans to meet your individual needs.

I have experience of working with a broad range of mental health issues: bereavement, relationship difficulties, work related difficulties, childhood/developmental issues, building confidence and self-esteem, anxiety, stress, depression, trauma and existential concerns.  Whether you are experiencing general problems such as depression, anxiety, low self-esteem or  a specific problem related to trauma, relationship difficulties, bereavement or life changing circumstances, I believe that together we can support you to explore your concerns and difficulties so that you gain a better understanding of yourself with a sense of increased wellbeing.

Counselling and Psychotherapy provides a unique and safe space for you to explore and work through current difficulties with a practitioner who is able to provide secure emotional holding and support.  Hence, working collaboratively and empathically to explore your feelings, thoughts and personal experiences which currently impact you in order to alleviate and manage distress is key to supporting you to develop new and effective ways of coping with difficult feelings, situations, circumstances and behaviours.

My specialism is providing individual therapy for young people and adults. I have a particular interest in working creatively.  Another area of interest is the transpersonal, thus supporting individuals to develop their self-reflexivity skills so that they can engage authentically with self-and-other from a place of conscious awareness.
