About Me

Hey, and welcome to my page! 

My name is Tami and I am a Registered Counsellor living and working in Cape Town, South Africa. I am the proud owner and founder of Tami Cruse Counselling which opened in 2022.

My office is in Roeland Square in Gardens, CPT.

Having been through the journey of therapy myself, I understand first hand how intimidating it can be; especially taking the first step to get psychological support. But I do however encourage you to make this investment in yourself and your mental health.

I look forward to connecting with you.

 Mission

Tami Cruse Counselling's mission for mental health is to support, educate and provide psychological services to empower South African's who are living with mental health challenges. I do this by providing a supportive safe space while using evidence-based techniques to assist my clients in managing their own mental health challenges. I believe that mental health issues impact important social issues, including education, employment, homelessness, and poverty. Tami Cruse Counselling aims to assist clients in processing their past and moving toward a more connected and meaningful life.

Vision

My vision is to provide culturally appropriate, holistic and evidence-based therapeutic approaches to people living in Cape Town. Access to mental health care is my top priority and it is therefore my vision to provide services focused on emotional wellbeing to promote psycho-social-emotional development for my client's personal or professional lives.
