Ashnee Kasseepursad

Ashnee Kasseepursad is a Clinical Psychologist who is passionate about working within the mental health space and promoting mental well-being. She is dedicated to facilitating growth and healing though a collaborative and holistic approach. The following quote by Carl Rogers encapsulates the therapeutic process and my values. You are accepted as just you are and the expert on your life.

The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change. What is most personal is most universal. People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you just let them be. I don’t find myself saying, soften the orange a bit on the right-hand corner. I don’t try to control a sunset. I watch them with awe as it unfolds. ” Carl Rogers

Therapeutic Approach

Ashnee works from an integrative, interactional, systemic framework. The therapy is tailored to suit the needs of each person, couple, and groups and what each client brings to the therapy space. Over time in our dynamic interactions within the context we create our reality and form patterns in our relationships. Our relationships are a focus from early childhood throughout adulthood. We are born into relationships; we live our life within relationships and thus our well-being stems from the quality of our relationships. As Charl Vorster stated, “I relate, therefore I am.” Within the therapy space we bring alive the constructs of congruence, unconditional positive regard, and empathy whereby  you create your journey towards your self-actualization.
