Besides my narrative approach in journeying with clients, I am trained in the following techniques and protocols:
(Trauma and Tension Releasing Exercises)
TRETM is a revolutionary new method for stress and trauma recovery, developed by dr David Berceli. It is based upon a viewpoint that tremoring is the organic way in which a human being (and animals) recovers from the aftermaths of tension and trauma.
In most cultures tremors are seen as a sign of shock, weakness and vulbernability and is often calmed down or terminated by medication or other means, resulting in depriving ourselves to recover from tension and trauma in an organic way. TRETM is designed to
activate the tremor mechanism of the human body which leads to a safe and organic recovery from the aftermaths of tension and trauma.
TRETM has become a first safe step in the journey with my clients. Once you have mastered the technique you have a tool to manage your stress levels and to maintain your nervous system.

(Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)
EMDR is a brief psychology protocol that helps people to heal from disturbing life experiences. Unlike the popular belief that severe emotional distress takes a long time to heal, studies have shown that with EMDR, people can experience benefits much quicker than traditional psychotherapy.
EMDR can be used in tandem with talk therapy to help improve emotional well-being. EMDR can also be helpful in overcoming addictions and handling chronic pain.
Millions of people have been treated successfully with EMDR over the past 20 years.
I am one of two certified EMDR practitioners in South Africa.

Emotion Focused Couple Therapy (EFT)
Emotionally focused couple therapy is based upon scientific study of the adult love and bonding processes in couples and is helpful to address distress in adult intimate relationships. It can also be used to help family members to connect and improve attachments.
Couples and families find this method a beneficial approach, as it can help people better understandp both their own emotional needs and responses, as well as those of the significant others in their lives.
I am one of a few advanced EFT couple therapists in South Africa.

Brainspotting is a physiological therapeutic tool which can be integrated into a wide range of healing modalities, including psychological as well as somatic approaches to treatment.

It is a valuable resource in the treatment of a wide range of medical, physical, and psycho-emotional issues and symptoms encountered by health professionals.
Brainspotting provides a tool for accessing, diagnosing, and treating a wide range of somatic and emotionally-based conditions.
The developer of Brainspotting, David Grand visited South Africa during July 2016 to start the training of Brainspotting practitioners for the first time on the African continent. I am part of the training.
