The psychology environment is a professional space, but where you are welcomed warmly and sincerely. The session lasts 51 minutes. Half of that time is a discussion about your expectations for your psychology, and in the other half, you will talk about your specific situation that brought you to therapy. As for the number of consultations required, this will vary depending on the nature of the problem and other factors.
The psychologist will keep all your information strictly private and confidential. However, information may be divulged if you give permission to the psychologist, if you implied intent to hurt yourself or others, or if the court asks for information.
We are human. It is natural to feel that something may be wrong with you. Psychologists understand that you may feel vulnerable and that you may feel ashamed of your problems. We all go through difficult times, and the psychologist is available to you so that you need not feel the burden of coping entirely on your own.
Both are mental health professionals and both can identify what kind of problem you may be having. Psychologists are specialists who have training in ‘talk therapy’ and formal assessments. Psychiatrists are specialists who have training in medicine.
The cost of a two-hour group session is R625 per person. The cost of a one-hour session for individuals, couples, or families is R1,478. Payments are cash only, or proof of payment by EFT. All South African medical schemes provide 15 free psychological sessions at medical scheme rates per year. If you are approved, you may use the paid invoice and request your medical scheme to reimburse you.
