Christi Gadd Pretoria East Psychology Practice in Garsfontein Faerie Glen


“The world is moving through one of the most chaotic periods in history. Around the globe, governments are acting fast to prevent the spread of COVID19 (coronavirus) to flatten the curve and ensure the sustainability of our health system. Our government has also acted swiftly and enforced a lockdown period for the safety of all South Africans. We understand that the situation the world finds itself in and the implications for all of us will cause a lot of anxiety and insecurity for you.”

I would like to assure you that these emotions are all valid – all of your emotions are valid.

Support is out there! I, and many of my colleagues, have made online services available to provide assistance in this time of isolation.

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