About Lungile

My name is Lungile Lechesa and I am a multilingual Clinical Psychologist (M.A Clinical Psychology, WITS), registered with the Board of Healthcare Funders and the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA). I obtained my Masters of Arts in Clinical Psychology at the University of the Witwatersrand and my thesis  investigated the disclosure of sexual abuse.

I completed my internship at Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital in the Child and Adolescent Unit and at Tara H Moross Hospital in the Acute Adult Psychiatric Ward and Outpatient Department. I then did my Community Service at Sterkfontein Psychiatric Hospital working predominantly in the Forensic Unit and Dual Diagnosis Ward.

I have valuable experience working with children, adolescents and adults across diverse psychotherapeutic settings faced with a variety of psychological, emotional or general life challenges. I work predominantly from psychodynamic and behavioural (CBT and DBT) psychological approaches, which will be tailored to suit your particular needs.
