Welcome to Dr Riette de Lauwere’s Private Practice


Riette is a registered clinical psychologist and pastoral therapist with 27 years of experience working with children, teenagers and adults with a range of emotional and/or psychological difficulties.


Riette uses a narrative approach with her therapy with adults. With children, working from a narrative approach she employs play and art therapy to address behavioural, emotional, or psychological difficulties.
The training for her doctoral studies, where psychology and practical theology were integrated, added depth to the therapy.  

Trained in a variety of psychometric assessment batteries, Riette uses these instruments to assist parents in discovering what underlies their child’s scholastic, behavioural or emotional difficulties and addresses such difficulties. Furthermore, she is qualified and experienced in psychological / psychometric assessment of adults.


Online Therapy

Riette is set up and available for online sessions with children, teenagers and adult clients who prefer to use this medium during the national lockdown period in response to the Covid 19 Pandemic.
