Getting Help

At some time in our lives or our child's life, each of us may feel overwhelmed and may need help dealing with our problems at home or within the schooling and educational development environment. According to the South African Depression and Anxiety Group (SADAG) one-in-six South Africans suffer from anxiety, depression or substance-use problems. Without help, Parent24 estimates that nearly 40 percent of children and adolescents with learning problems drop out of school. For these reasons it is necessary for proactive intervention to assist individuals, family's and children to correct and find remedies to these difficulties. The road towards success need not be walked alone.

Most South Africans need help dealing with feelings and problems that seem beyond their control — problems with a marriage or relationship, a family situation or dealing with losing a job, the death of a loved one, depression, stress, burnout or substance abuse. Those losses and stresses of daily living can at times be significantly debilitating. Sometimes we need outside help from a trained, licensed professional in order to work through these problems. Through therapy, psychologists help thousands of South Africans of all ages live healthier, more productive lives.

As your children walk through life from toddlers, nursery school, Grade R through to Primary, High school and Tertiary education or vocation - education and learning through a child's developmental pathway needs to be understood and all barriers, obstacles and development areas defined, resolved for successful graduates, professionals, parents and careers in life.

Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.
