Mabopane’s young woman’s mental health organization aims to change the community

Story By : Tumelo Sekwele

Nthabiseng Modiga; a Registered Counsellor from Mabopane Block R (Klipgat) is the founder of Mind Your Psyche Counselling Services, a company that was started a year ago.

Modiga studied Bachelor of Psychology at the University of Limpopo, where she graduated in 2018. After her graduation, she worked for a year as an intern at a company called Spectrum Colour Assessments and Counselling under the supervision of a Counselling Psychologist, where she got her experience working with children; she then started the company Mind Your Psyche after seeing the great need for psychological services in our communities.

 “We are faced with different societal issues such as gender-based violence and violence in schools, which can all be linked to unresolved issues or unmet psychological needs,” she explained,

She added that as a result the company was created with the objective of making psychological services affordable and accessible to different communities of different socio-economic status.

Mind Your Psyche offers counselling for social, relational, academic problems and offers support to those with mental health challenges.

It also provides tutorials for children from grade R to 6 in order to assist learners with learning challenges and to help improve them with their self-esteem.

Modiga facilitates workshops to parents in improving the parent-child relationship and psycho educates on mental disorders.

“I work with high school students by teaching them on stress and time management, as well as exam preparation and also offers career guidance,” she said.

“One of the biggest challenges faced by the organization has to be clients’ lack of commitment to counselling sessions as well as the reluctance to seek psychological services,”

“Which can be attributed to the stigma associated with mental health because people usually think you are crazy when you seek psychological help,” she added

Mind Your Pysche is situated in 120 Block R, Mabopane. They can be contacted on info@mindyourpsychecounselling.co.za  or 067 934 9472.
