About

Hi, I’m Janet Byrnes. I’ll be the person helping and guiding you on your journey. I am originally from East London, where I was raised and started my career. My family and I relocated to Port Elizabeth a few years ago where I now have a private practice in Cape Road.

I strongly believe that every person is unique with unique challenges and no one approach will be suitable to everyone. I therefore believe that there is no one ideal therapeutic approach and as a result, I adopt an ecletic approach to therapy.   In my approach to therapy, I draw on a blend of different modalities to help my clients, depending on their individual needs.

 

The different modalities that I draw on include, but are not limited to, the following:

Gestalt Therapy

Helping you focus on the present and to understand what is happening in your life right now.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Helping you to change your unhelpful thinking and behaviour in order to change the way you feel. This type of therapy can be very effective in treating anxiety disorders and depression.

Narrative Therapy

Helping you to separate you from your problem and encourage you to rely on your own skills, abilities, values and beliefs to change your relationship with the problems influencing your life.

Transactional Analysis (TA)

Using the classic parent-adult-child model to help you to identify and deal with interpersonal relationships.

Mindfulness Practice

Helping you to maintain a moment-by-moment awareness of your thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations and your environment without judgement and to accept things exactly as they are

Play therapy and Sandplay therapy

I can assist you in the following areas:

 

Should you live out of town, teleconference consultations via Skype for adults are also possible.
