In our stress filled lives we all sometimes need a helping hand to assist us in leading a joyous and meaningful life.

I am Eleen Polson, a counselling psychologist. I am also a daughter, mother, spouse, contemplative pilgrim, writer and artist. My practice is centered on a belief in the healing and freeing power of deep connection to all aspects of life – to your deeper self, to your body, your soul, your needs and feelings, and to each other and our world. This connecting assists people in working through difficulties and leading more fulfilled lives.

To support my holistic approach and multi-disciplinary practice, I draw on both traditional psychotherapeutic techniques and on the unique and often powerful contributions of expressive arts therapy, mindfulness, visualisation and mind-body work. I work with adults, teenagers and children on an individual, in-depth therapeutic level and also offer expressive arts therapy interventions and TRE (trauma release exercises) in a group context - based on the latest psycho-social developments.

My studio practice is in Clydesdale (near Pretoria Girls High School) and I also consult in Lyttleton Manor.
