Not all who wander are lost

One of my all-time favourite quotes is “Not all who wander are lost”. I think of life as a journey. A beautiful, often gruelling and sometimes arduous journey. There are times in this journey where you might encounter some tough terrain that you struggle to navigate- a mountainous climb, or a deep river to cross. Other times you might be in a shaded valley, walking easily along. And still other times you find yourself next to a river, resting your feet in the cool water- a time for resting and recharging.

You’ve likely landed on this page because you are in tough terrain at the moment. You might not be sure what direction to take, or what the next step is. Whether this is your journey as an individual, your family’s journey or your organisation’s journey, I am able to offer guidance. As your guide, I can access a wider view or different perspective on your current situation. While you might be experiencing a difficult climb, I am able to see the mountain-top you are close to reaching, and which skills you need to get there. My job is to help you find the next steps, and to select and individualise the tools you need for this specific part of your journey.

Whether you are an individual, a family or an organisation, I am happy that you’ve come across my site and would love to be your guide on this journey!

What I offer


Individual therapy offers the opportunity for me to get to know you in depth and explore what you’d like to gain from this journey of life. Together we co-create what a balanced life means for you.



Group therapy offers the opportunity for you to see that you are not alone in your circumstances or problems. It also offers a safe, supportive and confidential space to process and guide you forward.



A healthy workplace translates into reduced employee absenteeism, higher retention rates, improved productivity and focus and less strain on the company’s bottom line.

Don’t let diet culture destroy your day (and your sanity!)

October 22nd, 2019|

Diet culture steals our freedom and impacts our productivity, our relationships and our mental health. I share a story from my own life on how I refused to let diet culture destroy my day, and what the consequences might have been if I did.

What my clients have to say

“I have a much better awareness of my colleagues and staff, ‘what makes them tick’ as it were. Personally, I now better understand why I make decisions or behave a certain way.”

~ Kay Penny, HoD Accounts & Administration, The Profile Group

“It was a wow exercise and addressed a good few needs within our company… Understanding one’s staff is the key to getting the best out of them and the content delivered definitely will assist in improving individual productivity within our departments ”

~ Ernie Alexander, Executive Chairman, The Profile Group

“Karlien is intuitive, wise and gracious and the experience of connecting with her and the group participants has given me an insight into myself that has improved my mental health more than I could have imagined.”

~ Ceri, Group Therapy

“The workshop was so much more than I expected – I got genuine insight into what makes other people tick. More than that, I learnt things about myself. My team also greatly benefited from the workshop – at least they now understand my need for perfection – and I understand their need for patience.”

~ Sandra Schakowski, HoD IT Services, The Profile Group

“After going to various psychologists and counselors over the years, I feel that with Karlien at last I’m making headway and that I’m with someone who understands! She is very practical and very knowledgeable and we really work through things deeply. She is also caring and empathetic. I would recommend her to anyone.”

~ Hannah, Individual Therapy

“I have greatly enjoyed working with Karlien one-on-one and in group settings for many years. Her compassion and genuine care have helped me feel comfortable enough to get into the hard work of healing and her insights and methods have added value to my therapeutic journey.”
