ABOUT DR LORNA GEER
I am one of those lucky people whose passion – being really interested in people – has become my job; I love what I do, and therefore I am committed to providing psychology to every client with my very best effort during every session. I believe in treating clients with the utmost respect and compassion. I don’t judge, and I take care to select therapeutic counselling psychology techniques that coexist comfortably with a client’s values and beliefs. I aim to empower clients to do more than just function in this world: to live happy and fulfilled lives, to excel and to realise their dreams and objectives. I love staying in touch with international best practice, and my clients know that they get the benefit of techniques that have been shown to achieve real and lasting change.

Clients travel from across the country to see me.
While most of my client base is from Centurion and estates (Midstream, Cornwall Hill, Southdowns, Eldoglen), Pretoria and Johannesburg areas, many clients travel from across the country to see me, and refer friends and family without hesitation –often years after their therapy. To name a few towns – clients travel from Windhoek, Stellenbosch, Somerset Wes, Paarl, Port Elizabeth, Pietermaritzburg, Potchefstroom, Oudtshoorn, Ficksburg, Kimberley, Welkom, Bloemfontein, Heidelberg, Lichtenburg, Rustenburg, Parys, Nelspruit, Middelburg, Witbank, Polokwane, Dendron, Vaalwater, Tzaneen, Ellisras..
Complete therapy in relatively few sessions.
Clients find that they complete their therapy in relatively few sessions. Actual statistics over the past decade indicate that only about 1 in 10 clients needed more than 8 sessions, and 1 in 100 needed more than 10 sessions. Half of my clients completed therapy in 7 sessions or less, and a third only needed 4 sessions or less. The number of sessions depends on the individual, the nature of the issues and the extent to which they are prepared to work between sessions..
Professionals refer to me.
I get referrals from medical doctors, other psychologists, churches, schools, employers ... people trust my professionalism, expertise and ability to help with compassion and sincerity, without judgment or pre-conceived ideas, and without discrimination of any kind – be it race, gender, age, sexual orientation, religion or beliefs. I also find that clients are still happy to visit me again for a quick counselling session to deal with new/different challenges years later.
