About Ester Haumann

  I am a clinical psychologist and a Jungian analyst. Before starting a private practice in 1983, I received an MSc in Clinical Psychology from the University of Stellenbosch in 1975. In 1996, I completed the training in Hypnotherapy (SASCH). Further studies led to a PhD in Psychotherapy from Rhodes University in 2005. In 2009, I became a Jungian analyst (IAAPP) and a member of the Southern African Association of Jungian Analysts (SAAJA). Because of my interest in the embodied dimension of psychotherapy, I have also been part of the first Somatic Experiencing training group in South Africa.I consulted by individuals and couples grappling with a variety of life crises and difficulties, both personal and work-related. I work with clients with early trauma and attachment difficulties; clients suffering from mood and anxiety disorders; as well as those who struggle with affect regulation and interpersonal boundaries. Dealing with stress, life changes, working through loss and grief, and relationship issues are also part of my work. In the treatment plan that is specifically worked out and geared towards the needs of every individual client, there is an emphasis on personal development and the facilitation of increased psychic resilience. The mind-body dimension is an integral part of my therapeutic approach, and in this regard I use approaches like Embodied Dream Work and Somatic Experiencing.Clients include adults and adolescents from both English and Afrikaans-speaking backgrounds. The intensity and length of therapy depends on what a client needs and wants at a particular time; while therapy may therefore sometimes be long-term, some clients are seen for only a few sessions. The personal development and further training of psychotherapists are specific interests of mine.
