Karin Gerber
& Finley

Educational Psychologist & Furtherapist

Karin Gerber is an educational psychologist practicing in Stellenbosch, offering psychotherapy to school-going children (Gr R and older), teenagers, students, and parents. She is dedicated to promoting mental health and well-being by helping clients and families to overcome their emotional difficulties and improve their quality of life.

Areas of Special Interest

Psychotherapy, Sandplay Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, BWRT, Play Therapy & Parental Guidance

The Jungian psychology approach underpins the way Karin prefers to practice, believing in each person's innate ability, whether child or adult, to make meaning of their own lives. Often meaning is created through creative means, which mere words cannot achieve. As Carl Jung said, "Often the hands will solve a mystery that the intellect has struggled with in vain." 

The idea of therapy can be a daunting thought to some, but rest assured that visiting a psychologist can provide a wonderful opportunity for self-discovery and growth if you are willing to take on the journey with its mountains and valleys. 

Karin's therapeutic approach is gentle and guiding, as she creates a free and protected space for the client (whether child, adolescent, adult or parent) to discover their unique strengths, accept their unique weaknesses, acknowledge their self-worth, and learn new ways of going about their lives. 

She views it as an exceptional honour to accompany clients on their journey to self-understanding, as she learns so much from each child, parent, family, student or adult she works with.

Therapy is the most valuable gift you can give to yourself or a child. 

Karin offers a range of evidence-based therapies that are tailored to meet the unique needs of her clients. She offers psychotherapy, sandplay therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, Brain Working Recursive Therapy (BWRT), play therapy, and parental guidance. The aim is to help clients gain insight into their thoughts, emotions, and behaviours, and to develop effective coping mechanisms. Services are available for children, teenagers, students, and parents.
