Therapeutic Approach

You can be confident that your problems will be addressed in a sensitive, compassionate and confidential manner. The treatment approach is short-term, directive, problem focused and solution-orientated for long lasting results. Elmari combines years of experience and knowledge of different treatment modules. Working within a systemic and sexual medicine paradigm which implies a bio-psycho-social approach includes the vital element of working within a multi- disciplinary team. This implies calling in specialists on the highly skilled team for consultation as and when needed.

Individuals or couples are personally liable for the payment of accounts after each session, but most medical aids will reimburse clients for therapy received.

In therapy, you are assisted to heal the wounds from the past and the present. You are assisted to find and heal the missing pieces of yourself and to reconnect with the real you. You are supported and guided to find joy and meaning in life. You are assisted to learn coping mechanisms to deal with the challenges in your life. As you connect with and heal yourself, you are able to influence existing relationships positively and are able to choose to surround yourself with meaningful relationships. You are guided to create the life that you choose.
Elmari’s training in Psychotherapy, Couples Therapy and Sexual Medicine allows her to work with people who have sexual dysfunctions and or difficulties due to chronic illness, disability, ageing, menopause and the like. Elmari has a special interest in women with Sexual Pain Dysfunctions.

Challenges with regards to relationships, abuse, sexuality, sexual health, sexual dysfunctions, life style, stress, pornography, addiction, cheating, children, family and in-laws are often addressed.

My Clinical Practice is situated within The Elmari Craig Sexual Wellness Centre. The Sexual Wellness Centre includes a Sexual Health Store called Between the Sheets/Tussen die Lakens: Intimate and Sensual Products. Sexual health products are often part of the therapeutic management of sexual problems or can also be part of sexual and relationship growth in general. Hence they are immediately available if necessary.

Couples Therapy

During Couples Therapy, relationship issues between two people (in any stage of the relationship) are addressed.

Individual Counselling and Psychotherapy

During individual sessions, presented and underlying issues are explored and processed on a one to one basis. Various counselling techniques are used from Neuro-Linguistic programming (NLP), Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Hypnotherapy according to the individual’s unique needs.

Clinical and Medical Hypnotherapy

Clinical hypnotherapy is a combination of hypnosis and therapeutic intervention. In a hypnotherapy session, after entering a deep state of relaxation, you experience a heightened and more receptive state of mind. You now have the ability to explore the impact of your sub-conscious, unconscious and super conscious minds on your life.
Unresolved issues (which could include hidden and blocked thoughts, emotions, experiences and behaviors) are brought to the surface (the conscious mind) and are processed. You make a deliberate choice to access the inner world of the self. Experiences, traumas, memories and emotions that are affecting (and controlling) your life, are explored and processed. Blockages are removed, your inner resources and strengths are reactivated and you are assisted to reconnect with the power within the self.
