Greetings, my name is Riana. A very warm welcome from me to you.
I am an English and Afrikaans speaking wellness counsellor in training at Vita Nova. The reason why I am interested in being your counselor is because my heart and passion lies with people in the sense that I am passionate about embarking on a journey towards growth, empowerment, and healing with every client, no matter how diverse. I am a firm believer that there is unity in diversity.
A quote that has stuck with me is the following: “Be strong enough to stand alone, smart enough to know when you need help, and brave enough to ask for it.” – Unknown
Therefore, I want to applaud you for taking the first step into seeking help by visiting this website. I want to reassure you that these counselling sessions will include unconditional positive regard, confidentiality, empathic listening, and no judgement. By implementing these factors, a healthy therapeutic relationship can take place, where we form a team and face obstacles together.
