Esti le Roux

My name is Esti and I am a member of Signo Professional Association and have signed a SignoPro ethics code of conduct in the interest of my clients and my growth as a practitioner.

I am interested in providing my services as a narrative therapist to all sectors of the Mossel bay community.  As a qualified Foundation Phase teacher I love to help children going through difficult times. I also apply narrative therapy to the various levels of challenges parents and adults experience especially in a time like this. People’s well-being is my focus!  Although I have completed an advanced program of two years in narrative therapy through Coram Deo, accredited by the University of Pretoria, I am interested in trauma therapy and know the impact anxiety and depression have on our well-being.

Narrative therapy seeks to help people identify their values and the skills of knowledge they have to live these values, so they can effectively confront whatever problems they face.  My role is to help the person co-author a new narrative about themselves by identifying these qualities.  Narrative therapy claims to be a social justice approach to therapeutic conversations, seeking to challenge dominant discourses that shape people´s lives in destructive ways.

By listening to people, I am able to identify possible areas in their lives that contribute to their unhappiness.  At the same time, I can also identify alternative stories that can have a positive influence in their lives.  I help them to build on the positives and a

new alternative story.  In helping others, I also identify areas in my life that I still struggle with, thereby helping myself to construct coping strategies.  It is therefore a win-win situation for both the client, and me.

People is my passion. I am naturally attracted to people experiencing problems, thereby experiencing a feeling of being helpful.  We all live an unknown story. Tomorrow is not guaranteed for anyone. We need to know that God’s love for our lives are the most important to hold on to! To never let go of hope and to believe in better tomorrows!
