Our Practice Centers Increase Engagement

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy entails one-on-one sessions between a therapist and the client. It does not necessarily need to take place in times of crisis or distress but can also assist an individual in personal growth and development. My professional interests include, but are not limited to: Depression, Bipolar, Anxiety, Disorders of addiction (alcohol/drugs), Adjustment, Bereavement, and Trauma .

Family Therapy

Family therapy involves sessions with the therapist and various family members (depending on each family’s unique composition). Family therapy helps the family deal with issues experienced by the family such as conflicts, illness within the family, and identifying patterns of interaction among family members that perpetuate problems.

Couples Therapy

Couples therapy involves joint sessions with the therapist and the couple. The length of a session is usually 60 minutes. Couples therapy aims to address the unique stressors and conflicts that are being experienced by the couple. It assists in improving communication, exploring patterns that may be problematic, and enhancing the strengths within the couple system. It is also useful in helping the couple deal with important changes in the life cycle such as birth of a new baby, children going to school, dealing with teenagers etc.

Medico-Legal Assessments

The assessments are conducted following the request of a legal representative or third party.

Group therapy

Group therapy can be an effective treatment choice for drug addiction, depression,  bereavement, and traumatic stress.  It helps you realise you are not alone, facilitates giving and receiving support, helps you find your voice, helps you relate to others (and yourself) in healthier ways, and provides a safety net

Introducing Lobone Raditladi

Our clinical psychologist and Tranformational Speaker

Lobone’s Story

Lobone grew up with his maternal grandmother in a remote village called Modimola, outside Mafikeng in the North-West Province of South Africa.  He, later on, went to live in Mafikeng (Montshioa location and Lomanyaneng village respectively) with his mother and step-father after they got married.  Lobone completed his Matric at St Mary’s high school in Mafikeng where he became the first student in the then Bophuthatswana homeland to receive the “Standard Bank Best Matric Student Award” in 1991 during the year when he was also the Head boy of the school. The event was captured in the Mafikeng Mail, Radio Bop, and Bop TV news. This ignited and marked the beginning of his public speaking.

Inspired by his late grandfather and poet, LD Raditladi, Lobone went to study as a teacher and acquired a University Diploma in Education and Training but did not pursue his initial dream of writing Setswana books. He, however, continued his career as a school teacher and principal while he felt more inspired to become a psychologist.

In 2001, Lobone attended an Inculturation school in Kenya, Nairobi, where he was inspired to understand more about human existence, behaviour, and functioning.  In 2003, he organized a fundraising cross-cultural tour to Europe, Austria, where he took with him 15 students from his school choir to stage performances in various communities around Vienna.  The money raised was used to educate the poor children in the area of Lomanyaneng and Majemantsho villages in Mafikeng.

What else?

Lobone relocated to Johannesburg in 2008 with his family to take up a job as a school principal of a private school in Soweto. He worked as a school teacher for 19 years (including being a deputy and principal for 14 years). Despite his proven success in education, Lobone still believed in his capacity to achieve more, and subsequently decided to pursue his dream of becoming a clinical psychologist. He was fortunate to be selected to a full-time Master’s Degree programme in Clinical Psychology in 2015 at UNISA, which he successfully completed. He is currently working as a clinical psychologist.

Lobone is also well-known as a musician in various communities where he lived and worked as a teacher.  He was a chorister and co-conductor of the then popular Molopo Choral Artists choir in Mafikeng.  He also conducted St.Mary’s Church Choir in Mafikeng and recorded CD albums in 2007 and 2010 (which are currently popular in Motsweding & Mafikeng FM). With his interest in psychology and music, Lobone titled his Masters dissertation “The perceived psychological contributions of choral singing in a Setswana-speaking community.”
