” You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress, simultaneously.”

Services at Christi Gadd Clinical Psychology

Life can be very difficult – managing work and life, building meaningful relationships, negotiating family dynamics, raising children, losing loved ones and/or going through traumatic or other painful experiences, we often end up feeling overwhelmed, burdened, scared, worried, anxious, numb or depressed losing our sense of being a masterpiece and a work in progress simultaneously.

The following services available at my Pretoria East Psychology Practice may assist in negotiating these challenges and creating your own masterpiece:

Individual Therapy

At my Pretoria East psychology practice, Individual Therapy is a personalised process tailored to the needs of each client. These could be to achieve certain goals, relieve distress or to change unfulfilling aspects of their lives.

Couples Therapy

Most couples may benefit from Couple’s Therapy at some point in their relationship in order to enhance the satisfaction and fulfilment in their relationship. This is done by exploring the patterns that underlie the challenges they are facing.

Family Therapy

Family Therapy aims to create an environment where family members assist each other in negotiating their current challenge. This is done by creating a safe environment where family members may have difficult discussions in a constructive manner.

Psychological Assessment

Psychological Assessment makes use of various techniques in order to obtain a holistic and integrative picture of a person and their current functioning. This may then be used to guide interventions in scholastic-, occupational- or social contexts.


Neuropsychology is concerned with manner in which the brain regulates our behaviour. Neuropsychology may assist in the identification and management of brain-related illnesses and/or injuries.

Psycho-Legal Assessment

Psycho-legal Assessment refers to the process where psychological knowledge is applied within a legal context. Psycho-legal reports may be of use in personal injury claims, medical negligence claims or third party claims.
