Magna M Erasmus. MBACP. Level 7 Dip Trauma
Your life, your relationships, your choices.
I love to talk with clients about their feelings, purpose, meaning and pretty much anything that life offers, good and bad. Many years of experience in helping clients unlock the truth about themselves, lives, hopes and dreams have taught me we never stop needing to connect to ourselves and others. I have learned that we need to talk about our pain to heal. And I know the importance of telling our story, feeling understood, and healing old wounds.
The purpose of my work is to support emotional well-being, nurture hope, compassion and healing. To walk with you.
My work is based on relationships, attachment, trauma, integrative therapy and the belief that we can heal. I have many years of experience working with addictions, trauma, issues with food, depression and anxiety.
I offer both short and long term therapy, once or twice a week, depending on your need. You can see me for as long as you need.

'Thank you so much for helping me find myself' Sally
'My sessions with you helped me to understand how to cope with day to day struggles and also to put these struggles into a bigger picture. You have given me powerful and effective tools to cope with life's difficulties and also to find more hope and enjoyment in day to day life' John
‘I have struggled with my life at least since I was 8 years old. Over the years I have used self harm, food, drugs and unhealthy relationships as my coping mechanisms, always trying to find help and support but repeatedly failing. I had tried counselling, group therapy, the 12 steps and even an eating disorders unit. Nothing seemed to help and I always ended up back with my old unhealthy and unhappy habits.
My sessions with Magna have literally been life changing. After 32 years of sadness my life has turned finally turned around. She helped me focus on myself and find my voice. I have taken control of my life and am so much better; a better mum, daughter, sister, wife and friend. I no longer have that darkness following me.
I truly can’t recommend Magna enough’ Mary
