Welcome to Dr John-Eduard Bosman Psychology Practitioner

I am a registered Psychology Practitioner (Category Registered Counsellor) and a Pastoral Therapist. I have a private practice in Kempton Park, servicing mainly the East Rand cities of Edenvale, Bedfordview, Germiston, Benoni, Boksburg and Brakpan. I have 15 years of experience working with couples and individuals of different sexual orientations, cultural backgrounds and religious beliefs. I am available to do Skype or Zoom sessions when needed.
In providing relationship counselling, I work with a range of issues that are often part of successful couple therapy. These areas include relationship stress and conflict, depression, grief and loss, trauma and early-childhood hurts.
I have provided trauma counselling following traumatic incidents such as motor vehicle accidents, violence, sexual abuse, and so on. I have worked successfully with couples where one or both partners have survived traumatic incidents.
The approach that I prefer is one of the most researched and highly effective relationship counselling approaches. This approach is known as Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFCT) or Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT). Having expertise in this approach means that I have a well-researched understanding of the needs of adults in romantic/love relationships and what is known about helping couples have satisfying and healthy relationships.

People who contact me usually do so because they are experiencing difficulty in their marital and personal relationships or are experiencing uncomfortable symptoms of stress, depression or anxiety. They want relief, they want answers, and they don’t want to feel judged.

It is surprising how hard life and relationships can be. When you find yourself at this point it may be helpful to take a step back and talk to a counsellor to make sense of what is happening around and in you.

Counselling provides a safe, validating relationship in which to gain insight, foster strengths, and develop the coping skills you need to manage difficult emotions, relationships, and life circumstances.

Effective counselling is not simply talking about your problems. It is about working towards solutions for the things you can change and accepting the things you can’t change.

In essence, the goal of psychotherapy is to help you “weather” the storms of life with a greater sense of calmness and confidence so that you can continue to grow and evolve.
