Hello, my name is Anya O’Hagan.
I am Registered Counsellor with the Health Professions Council of South Africa that has been working in private practice six years.
People come to me wanting to change. Contrary to popular belief, we cannot change alone. Carl Rogers said “significant positive personality change does not occur except in a relationship”. In this case, it is the relationship between counsellor and client that generate the conditions for growth which make change possible.
My love affair with Psychology began when I was a young girl, fascinated by the stories of others and driven by an unquenchable desire to know more, understand more, feel more. I spent five years completing my B.Psych equivalent degree before writing the board exam to become a Registered Practitioner.
“Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death”.
