More about our expert panel:
A registered, experienced and compassionate Clinical Psychologist and Hypnotherapist. Elise eventually branched off from academia and established her own practices at Sandton Clinic and Mayo Clinic in Gauteng. Upon relocation to Cape Town, Elise started a practice at Crescent Clinic before opening up Blouberg MediSpa in West Beach and founding Palm Tree Clinic in Table View in 2012. “Life is a journey, a university of hard knocks. Take every curve ball thrown your way as a challenge and as a lesson learnt, not a punishment. If you humbly accept it, it too will pass,” she says.
She graduated from the University of Pretoria in 2012, and completed a post graduate diploma in Vocational Rehabilitation in 2014. She uses compassion-based, goal-directed behavioural approaches in individual therapy; facilitates group therapy using the dialectical behaviour therapy approach; and conducts functional and work capacity assessments for individual and insurance purposes. Mariaan is passionate about adult and adolescent mental health, and supporting individuals in creating lives that are personally fulfilling and meaningful, and continues on changing lives for the better with her work.
After completing her medical degree, it was through her experiences as a doctor that she quickly learnt of the importance of “learning to listen”. “When one is not well, it is your body’s way of communicating that a balance has been lost and that something needs to change,” says Tamsin. This change is often multifaceted and not only involves the physical but the psychological and mental realms as well.
This realization led her to change her outlook and approach to illness in which she now prefers to treat the individual and not the symptom. “There is no healthy body without a healthy mind,” she says
