Address: Muizenberg, South Africa

Wilna van der Walt is a registered medical doctor; she practices in the field of psychotherapy, and has a special interest in creative work.

On her personal journey, she encountered the creative process in the 1990’s as a living organic process. Jungian psychology confirmed her experience of the potentially transformative power of the creative process and continues to inform her current work.

“A patient needs only to have seen once or twice how much he is freed from a wretched state of mind by working at a symbolical picture, and he will always turn to this means of release whenever things go badly with him.” Chodorow, quoting Jung, 1997, p. 93

If you should decide to enter therapy with Wilna, incorporating creative work into your work together would be a possibility.

Her past medical experience includes 10 years with Oncology and 15 years in general practice serving township inhabitants.
