Welcome!

I offer a range of social work therapy, consulting and training services.

Therapeutic services include face-to-face or online sessions with teenagers and adults regarding their personal challenges. My central belief in therapy is that everyone has the potential to get the outcomes they want, if they are prepared to try new solutions and are properly supported in their efforts.

I consult with organisations around aspects of leadership and management, such as staff and team motivation, group dynamics and dealing with change. Currently I am working with an international organisation to develop a global curriculum for child & youth care practitioners in alternative care.

Consultation services are available to social workers who need additional support or input regarding their own services or practice, such as consulting on cases or ethical challenges. Social workers also need support to prevent secondary trauma and prevent burnout due to the intensity of the work that is done.

Training and facilitation is regularly available on a wide range of topics, such as working with trauma, suicide, work safety, group facilitation and various therapeutic modalities.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and it’s impact on medical and mental health practitioners, I recently set up an additional website together with some other colleagues to keep track of information, articles and services related to the pandemic in South Africa.

Note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all services are currently only available via online platforms.

Feel free to look around my site and let me know if you have any questions. You can e-mail me on werner@changeworks.co.za.
