About Your Counselor

Storme Brand

We all experience challenges as part of day-to-day life. This was no different for me personally. I did however manage to overcome these challenges with the help of a kind person. Which inspired me to became a Registered Counselor. I am now able to be of assistance to others, who have their own challenges. Our challenges might be different, but what we have in common is that we all sometimes need a helping hand.

While studying, I pursued opportunities to help people via pastoral, HIV and abortion counselling where opportunities presented themselves.

I completed my Bachelor of Arts in Psychological Counselling degree followed shortly by my Honors degree in Psychology in 2012. I then completed a 12 month internship with Lifeline, after which I wrote my board exam. This enabled me to be registered as a Registered Counselor by the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) in 2014. Ever since I have been attending further courses and keeping abreast with new developments.

My Values

I have a loving husband and I am a mother to two young boys, I value family above all else. Sometimes this can be challenging, but I believe that there is no greater reward than experiencing the love of others and the ability to love those close to you.

Apart for my human family, you will find my animals roaming around and they have a special place in my heart. They have the ability to calm and sooth a tough day with nothing more than a touch or gesture.

Why me as your counselor?

I believe that with my education, experiences as well as my personal background, I am able to relate to you in an empathetic way. I can assist you to find a new perspective on your situation and provide you with coping skills.

All information discussed is kept strictly confidential. I am of great belief in the ethical system that has been given to us by the HPCSA and I hold it with great regard.
