My name is Kerryn Swart and I offer Wellness Counselling in Durban to people from all walks of life. I am passionate about helping people flourish in life, helping them discover their capabilities to succeed and overcome obstacles.
When we meet for wellness counselling my goal is to partner with you on your counselling journey, help problem solve, encourage, comfort and build new life skills that will help you realise your goals.
I am a registered member of the ASCHP (Association for Supportive counsellors and Holistic practitioners), based in Morningside Durban, South Africa. You can read more about the ASCHP below.
Aside from practicing as a wellness counsellor in Durban, I am married, have twin daughters, two Yorkie pups and enjoy spending time with my family.
The ASCHP is a SAQA recognized professional body (South African Qualifications Authority ID 984) with registered designations on the National Qualifications Framework (Act 67 of 2008).
A nationally recognized professional body ensures consistency in standards across and within provinces in South Africa, and across different counselling contexts. Registration of counsellors with a professional body will provide a consistent basis for evaluating and regulating counselling and will ensure greater access to counselling services.
Counselling enables one or more people to go through the process of finding solutions to their concerns or difficulties. Counselling may take various forms, including with individuals, couples, families or domestic units and groups. The ASCHP has identified accredited training providers to enable counsellors to gain accredited and applicable qualifications. This will allow counsellors to be recognised and will address current national health and social service priorities. The ASCHP is affiliated to the Council for Counsellors in South Africa and the Natural Healers Association.
The ASCHP fulfils the following functions in accordance with SAQA requirements:
