REFERRALS

Benita is happy to help some friends connected with you. She does not, however, take clients who are family members (through marriage, naturally or through a de facto relationships).

For 17 years, she saw members of the same family and what inevitably occurred was that each family member expressed their problems, likes and dislikes about the other. As Benita does not believe that being a family therapist is an impartial role, she took sides, mentally or overtly, by communicating this to the client. She took the side of the family member (client) she believed to be the most innocent and the most manipulated, although this complicated the nature of business.

Family therapy while possible for Benita is not what her business is aimed at achieving and in 2015 Benita ceased this role.
