Brian A Blem – MA Counselling Psychology (UP), BA Honours Psychology (UJ), BA Honours Business Studies (Portsmouth Polytechnic, UK); HPCSA Prac no. 0318698.
Brian is a passionate and inspired psychologist with a special interest in Men’s Work, Couple and Marriage Counseling, and Career Coaching. His approach to therapy is client centered and integrative, incorporating psycho-dynamic, behaviorist, systemic and existential theoretical constructs , and Biblical principles.
Brian’s primary interest is human relationships and how we impact upon one another in healing or hurtful ways. His objective is to create a supportive environment in which his clients feel safe enough to explore their past and present experiences in order to better understand and promote their own healing and personal development. He believes we all intrinsically know what is best for our lives, but due to unhelpful conditioning, negative programming and societal pressures, we often struggle to realise our true potential. Understanding and accepting who we are is a key step towards knowing what we ultimately want to accomplish in life, so Brian sees therapy as there to help his clients discover and celebrate more of who they are.
