Luc Scheepers

Clinical Psychologist

About

I am a clinical psychologist registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa with a private practice in Paarl. My qualifications are as follows: 

BA Humanities (Stellenbosch University) 
BA Honours (Stellenbosch University) 
MA Psychology (Stellenbosch University) 
MA Clinical Psychology (NMU, Port Elizabeth)


I completed my undergraduate studies, honours degree, and masters degree in psychology (research thesis) at Stellenbosch University. My research was conducted on the experiences of parents bereaved by the loss of their child. The focus was on the parents’ resilience - how they stood strong in the midst of their grief, and how they survived and adapted to a life without their child. I learned from these parents that vulnerability does not preclude inner strength and how relationships and human emotional connections foster healing. I remain passionate about resilience and hope to help my clients in the context of a supportive therapeutic relationship to (re)discover their own inner emotional resources and strengths necessary for experiencing personal growth.

I received my master’s degree in clinical psychology at the Nelson Mandela University (NMU) in Port Elizabeth, where I also completed my community service. During this time, I worked with clients of all ages, backgrounds, and with various diagnoses, problems of living and emotional challenges at the university’s psychology clinic, the Elizabeth Donkin Psychiatric Hospital, the Livingstone Hospital, and community clinics in the suburbs of Motherwell, Kwazakhele, and New Brighton.  

Currently it is a pleasure working as a private practitioner from the Paarl Family Health building at 147 Main Road and at Mountain Health practice in Worcester at 45 Russel Street. On request, I also enjoy doing work for nonprofit organisations and other institutions in need of my professional assistance, whether it be providing individual therapy services, group therapy, workshops, or psycho-education lectures.
