Lungile Lechesa



Clinical Psychologist

My name is Lungile Lechesa and I am a multilingual Clinical Psychologist (M.A Clinical Psychology, WITS), registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) and the Board of Healthcare Funders (BHF). I completed my internship at Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital in the Child and Adolescent Unit, and at Tara H Moross Hospital in the Acute Adult Psychiatric ward and Outpatient Department. I then did my Community Service at Sterkfontein Psychiatric Hospital working predominantly in the Forensic Unit and Dual Diagnosis Ward.

I have valuable experience working with children, adolescents and adults across diverse psychotherapeutic settings faced with a variety of psychological, emotional or general life challenges. I provide brief and long-term therapeutic services to individuals (children and adults) struggling with a range of difficulties inclusive of, but not limited to the following:

  • Anxiety
  • Trauma
  • Addiction
  • Depression
  • Mood disorders
  • Eating disorders
  • Coping with stress
  • Adjustment disorders
  • Personality disorders
  • Grief and bereavement
  • Behavioural difficulties
  • Parenting difficulties
  • Life changes & transitions
  • Couple‚Äôs or marital difficulties
  • Relational and/or ongoing interpersonal difficulties

Seeking psychological services can be a confusing and daunting experience, however I aim to provide a safe, empathic, non-judgmental and collaborative therapeutic environment where we work together in gaining insight into your difficulties and experiences; and carve out space for healing, growth, fulfilment and meaning in your life.

I work predominantly from psychodynamic and behavioural (CBT and DBT) psychological approaches, which will be tailored to suit your particular needs. I also offer psychological assessments (children and adults), and forensic and or psycho-legal assessments and reports. For further information please contact me at the following
