Header-Cheryl Graser-Pruss, Clinical Psychologist
Baobab Tree  I am a Clinical Psychologist, registered with the HPCSA (Ps0048801), as well as a Clinical Psychotherapist, registered with the United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapy (04156443). 
I have a Masters Degree in Educational Psychology (Wits), and a Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy (Sherwood Institute, UK).  I have completed workshops, inter alia, in Transactional Analysis, Imago couple therapy, hypnotherapy, and have had additional training in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (UJ).  I am a member of the South African Psychoanalytic Initiative.

I have been practicing for 18 years, and have worked with children, adolescents, adults, couples, families and groups, in schools, corporations, mental health institutions and in private practice.  In doing so, I have successfully treated a variety of psychological problems, some of which include work related issues, self esteem, relationships, trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, personality disorders, life skills and life coaching, as well as addiction.   
I offer supervision to colleagues, and manage the clinical psychology internship programme at one of the internship placement centres in Johannesburg.  I currently offer part-time consultations with patients and staff at an addiction rehabilitation centre, where I conduct individual and group sessions, as well as psycho-educational seminars, in a group-like setting, to the significant others of the addict patients, and occasional staff training.  Within this, I am involved in some of the community outreach projects, most notably in Hillbrow, where the addiction problem is severe.

Having been co-owner of a unique child-centred early learning centre for infants and young children, for ten years, I provided counselling to parents of the children attending the school. I also implemented programmes for the children, which incorporated every aspect of their development.  I ensured that all my care-giving staff were handpicked and frequently trained.

I am a co-founder and director of the Egoli Psychotherapy Training Institute cc ( www.egoli-psychotherapy-institute.co.za ), which offers workshops pertaining to psychotherapy, for mental health professionals.
