In general, counselling (psychotherapy) is beneficial as the average client is better off than the majority of people not receiving therapy. Unfortunately, not all people benefit from counselling. To ensure that the service offered to you by Scheepers-CCC is beneficial, we ask for feedback. Dr. Scheepers checks in with every client at the beginning of the session to monitor for changes in well-being and she will ask you about your expectations for the session.  

Elisabeth specializes in Couple and Relationship issues, Trauma (PTSD) and Mood Disorders (anxiety & depression). 

During couple sessions, Elisabeth focuses on effective communication, dealing with conflict and helping couples to restore intimacy. Dr. Scheepers works with all couples regardless of sexual or romantic orientation.

Elisabeth assists those with symptoms of depression, anxiety and trauma-related symptoms to have an increased awareness, knowledge and the skills to implement tools to feel healthier and happier. 

In case your presenting issues are mental health and addiction related, you may need additional assistance and this is what will be discussed during a first session, because it is important that you are safe and stable, otherwise you would not benefit from the session.

Elisabeth has extensive training in classical as well as the newer type of approaches and will discuss with you which approach may be the best fit. 

In the case of issues related to bullying and other problems at the workplace, please talk to your HR manager, supervisor or director as these are workplace HEALTH & SAFETY issues which affect the dynamics at your workplace. Your company has a responsibility to create a safe and healthy work environment. They can contact Scheepers-CCC to request presentations, training, workshops or mediation sessions.
