Pamela Stevens

I am 37 years old, married for 11 years and have two children, 5 and 6 years old.  Psychology interested me when I went through a traumatic event in my life.  I was in a big car accident and was diagnosed with depression.  Through my studies I got to know myself better and had a wonderful psychologist that assisted me dealing with my trauma. 

I also have a special interest in drug addiction and alcoholism.  A very close friend of mine suffered from addiction and through this I got educated in this field and could empathise and assist the family. 

I also worked at SAPS Durbanville and assisted victims of crime (house break ins, high jacking, assisting family members on suicide cases). 

These experiences have taught me that in life, everything flows into different stages.  At the traumatic stage in my life, I learned that I can be empowered and I can stand up and be strong. 

Through my counselling services, I would like to assist and empower people in need and coping with daily challenges and also dealing with a variety of issues in life and also assisting in  mood disorders, such as depression, anxiety (etc.)
