Our Approach

Sikhona Therapy utilises a client-fit approach that incorporates a range of methods and techniques when needed. One size certainly does not fit all and we pride ourselves in adapting each session to meet the needs of the client. What this means is that we tailor each therapeutic plan and session to best address the presenting problem as well as the personality and preferences of the client given their unique set of circumstances and world view. 

Sikhona Therapy prides itself in using relevant and new assessment measures within our field which make the results more reliable while making the testing process more enjoyable for our clients. We understand that multiple factors and components influence a child’s learning and development and therefore we aim to obtain a holistic understanding of your child by making use of multiple and comprehensive assessment measures. This allows us to best understand the way that they learn, what potential barriers they may experience in the classroom and how we can assist them to overcome these barriers in order to reach their full potential. 

 

Some of our methods and techniques include; Narrative therapy, The Solution-focused approach, Client-Centered Therapy, Play Therapy, Bibliotherapy, Psychotherapy, Positive Psychology and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

Please Note: Assessments and therapy can be conducted in both English and Afrikaans however reports and assessment feedbacks can only be done in English.
