Nordlind C Fouché (MSocSci)
I hold a hold a Masters degree in Counselling Psychology (University of Fort Hare, 2011) and I am a registered Counselling Psychologist with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (PS 0118290).
I have completed two types of internships at two different institutions. My first internship was in career counselling at the Bureau for Student Counselling and Academic Development at University of South Africa, Western Cape Region in 2008. My second internship in counselling psychology was completed at the Centre for Student Support Services at the University of the Western Cape in 2011 where I have delivered various therapeutic interventions to students.
I was employed as a student counsellor at the Bureau for Student Counselling and Academic Development at University of South Africa, Western Cape Region in 2012 where I contributed to the development, implementation and delivery of mass counselling interventions. For a few years I did consultancy work for the Therapeutic Unit at the Centre for Student Support Services at the University of the Western Cape (since 2014). At present I am in a private independent practice (Pr.0499420). Prior to my internships I have worked for 3 years in the field of student counselling (Career Psychology orientation) at the University of South Africa, Western Cape Region. I was also trained and volunteered at Life Line (2007- 2009) where I delivered telephonic counselling for people in crisis.
Working in student counselling for quite a number of years provided me with the opportunity to assist people from different backgrounds and ages to overcome personal difficulties that impacted on their academic performance. As a result I have accumulated years of experience in working with young professionals, students and adolescents who are facing difficulties in different aspects of their mental, emotional, social and occupational functioning.
I continue to provide psychological assessment and psychotherapy for adults, couples and, adolescents. I continuously update my training regarding topics and therapeutic techniques that are of relevance in today’s world. My professional interests are in couple therapy, overcoming trauma, depression and anxiety, addiction science, adjustment difficulties, career management and health psychology.
I prefer using an integrative therapy approach built on a client’s individual needs and readiness to change.
