I understand the significance of emotions and the profound impact they have on individuals' well-being, therefore I strive to create a safe and non-judgmental environment.

I am passionate about learning and development. I see myself as a networker, facilitating growth in others through therapeutic relationships to provide essential support. My goal is to support individuals to overcome obstacles and leverage their strengths to optimise their potential. I firmly believe that collaboration is the epitome of synergy, where creative and critical thinking combine to design optimal interventions for individuals and systems. I am dedicated to enabling individuals in their unique journeys, tailoring my approach to one's specific needs.

My experience in counselling and therapy, psycho-educational assessment accommodations/concessions, subject choice assessments and career counselling enables me to see a bigger picture of a person's development and growth potential.

I enjoy working with children in late primary school, high school, students and young individuals. 

My two children have taught me to understand the heart of a
parent and helped me to grow in compassion and empathy.

I am Lelani Cloete, a registered Educational Psychologist with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA). My private practice is located on the school premises of Paul Roos Gymnasium in Stellenbosch.

I am Afrikaans, but I offer all my services in Afrikaans or English. I am familiar with a school context, as I was a counsellor and teacher at Paul Roos Gymnasium for thirteen years, of which six as the Head of Learner Support, before moving to private practice. I enjoy working with the student market, as I completed my internship at Stellenbosch University's Centre for Student Counselling and Development (CSCD). 

I wholeheartedly agree with Maya Angelou's powerful words: 'People will forget what you said. People will forget what you did but never forget how you made them feel. As a Psychologist, I focus on providing compassionate care that restores and empowers my clients.
