Amy Eksteen


I did my qualification at Nelson Mandela University. With that four year experience, an undying fascination and love for people was born along with a Bachelor of Psychology (Counselling) degree with Cum Laude.

I am currently a board qualified Registered Counsellor who is registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa. As a part of my degree, I completed a sixth month internship, where I received some of my first experiences as a Registered Counsellor intern. During my time as a student, I was also a part of various extra courses, projects, volunteer and community work with people from different communities, cultures, beliefs and lifestyles.

I want to dedicate my time, through my work as a professional, to bring basic psychological skills to the general public, especially to people who don’t have easy access or a basic understanding and awareness of the benefits of psychology and the counselling experience. I hope to achieve this goal by offering my services as a counsellor who will be working in my own private practice.

If you want to know more about me, my current interests include writing, reading and blogging as I currently have my own blog titled “Me”. I began my Christian Lifestyle blog because I want to provide more platforms that allow people, of all ages, to be authentically themselves, unapologetic for their quirks, accepting of their individuality and free to embrace their imperfections. I love all things to do with movies, art and poetry. My favourite colour is pink, I own two incredible rescue cats and I love music. I consider myself to be a foodie and sneakerhead, but most importantly I believe that my purpose is to change the world by making it a place filled with unconditional love. I hope to do this through who I am as a person and through my work as a counsellor.

For more information on the services that I offer, please feel free to explore my website and contact me if you would like to.
I look forward to hearing from you!
