Petro Booysen

In my counselling practice, I support people to positively address challenges in their lives, to enable them to live with an empowered attitude and find the joy and fulfillment they are striving for by realising that they have the power to effect and draw this into their own lives.

I embrace the strengths-based practice approaches in my work. I find that practicing from a strengths perspective is hope enhancing, respectful, and collaborative and that clients benefit greatly from such an approach. I also have a special interest in mindfulness and offer a mindfulness-based counselling process. Aligned with the strengths approach and mindfulness, I use the approach known as The Three Principles or Health Realisation or the Inside Out approach. This is a powerful way to become aware of the effect we can have on our personal reality and on change.

Equine-assisted therapy is an available option too and including a session/s from this modality in your counselling process could be hugely empowering and enlightening.

I consult in the Camborne, Porirua area as well as in Wellington CBD and online counselling or e-counselling sessions via Skype or telephone counselling sessions are also available.
