Konrad van Staden is a Clinical Psychologist and Candidate Analytic (Jungian) Psychologist. Konrad provides individual psychotherapy and analysis to adults and adolescents, as well as various group processes for burnout and coping mechanisms.
Konrad completed his clinical studies at Pretoria University and Weskoppies Hospital. He developed interests and experience in psychoanalytic therapy, addictive disorders(obesity, binge-eating and substance abuse), depth therapy, personal growth, psychosexual problems, and the expression of depression and anxiety within the individual personality.
Konrad believes in developing a deeper interaction between our own unconscious nature and our sense of self. Therapy processes help you feel greater control through reclaiming the lost balance by finding answers inside in resources previously unavailable.
Continual interaction between our biology, our mind and social-relational dynamics brings us into an expression of our soul that leads to being ethical, responsible and psychically playful. To actualise means to find our own unique soul, expression, and integrate it with the world around us through the journey inwards.
After initially reading for a degree in Law at Rhodes University, Konrad travelled through Europe and the Middle East, returning to Rhodes to complete studies in Philosophy and Psychology. He had the privilege of experiencing and learning from differing perspectives through studies at Stellenbosch and finally Pretoria Universities.
Deeply rooted in the experience of the Eastern Cape and the city-dwelling life of the Lowveld, Konrad now enjoys coastal life and the tranquil soulfulness of Kini Bay on the outskirts of Port Elizabeth.
Konrad has a passion for understanding the psychological interaction between wildlife and human and economic communities. He spends time enjoying various sports where he gets to interact with nature, especially the sea.
*To facilitate and meet the need for support and psychotherapy, Konrad offers sessions through Skype and Zoom platforms.
