Feel seen, heard and valued

"Connection: The energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard and valued. When they can give and receive without judgement; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship." - Brené Brown

Michelle Smit

Hi, I'm Michelle. I am fully bilingual in English and Afrikaans and am currently completing my Ph.D.

In addition to my private practice, I work as the clinical leader of a dual diagnosis psychiatric hospital that specializes in addiction. Addiction work is my passion and I am well versed in the complicated nature of addiction and how it not only affects the individual but their friends and families as well. I can help you to navigate this process and to assist you with your battle for sobriety.

I also work with issues such as depression, anxiety, and relationships. Transitional changes and life's obstacles often times comes with a feeling of uncertainty and feeling overwhelmed. Let me assist you in finding clarity, in finding change, and finding a sense of peace.
