Business Details

Shenila Maharaj is a Counselling Psychologist who specialises in working with adults, couples and adolescents to bring about positive change.

I mostly adopt a Solution Focused Brief Therapy Approach.

Making the decision to enter into the therapeutic process may be an over interrogated decision. This may be due to the stigma attached to such a process.

Therapy, in simplistic terms, may be seen as a process that provides you with the space to explore whatever it is that you are struggling to make sense of, at any given moment. Therapy may be described as a container that holds the client and their hardships or as a safety net.


INDIVIDUAL THERAPY / ADULT COUNSELLING offers you a journey of re-discovery to establish your strengths to help you deal with whatever issue you are dealing with that may be making you feel dissatisfied, unhappy or experience other distressing feelings.

COUPLE COUNSELLING / MARITAL THERAPY focuses on re-building or re-kindling your relationship. Effort is made to help you and your partner understand each other better.

PRE-MARITAL COUNSELING explores the possible issues that may arise in your marriage and you are guided through dealing with these issues in a contained space.


I offer therapy to adults and adolescents in the following areas:

-Anxiety Management
-Trauma Debriefing
-Adjustment Difficulties – life changes such as marriage, relocation and motherhood
-HIV/AIDS Related Counselling
-Personal Growth and Development – exploring childhood experiences that may negatively affect your current behaviour
-Career Counselling
-Eating disordersIndividual Counselling sessions are usually the duration of an hour.


The traditional method of counselling is face to face. For various reasons i.e. the busy pace of life and logistics, this may sometimes not be accessible. Some people may also prefer more indirect ways of counselling rather than face to face. I offer a few options: telephonic counselling, email correspondence and Counselling via Skype. For more information contact me.


I offer 90 minute divorce mediation sessions to assist in making the divorce process a more manageable experience regarding the various decisions and plans that need to be made.


I offer workshops/talks on the following topics.

-Self Care/Relaxation Techniques/ Stress Management – emphasis is on praticing abdominal breathing, Progressive Muscle-Relaxation and guided visualisation
-Assertiveness Skills Training
-Study Skills Workshops – exam management, time management
-Career Guidance Workshops
