Counselling & workshops in Cape Town focused on increasing Emotional Intelligence, Consciousness and Mindfulness for children and adults. BWRT offered as well.
My name is Shenaaz Moos and I am Registered Counsellor (also a mother of 3) and saw a great need for offering emotional support to adults, children, couples and families in my community. I left being a stay at home mom after 10 years to enter the work force and became a Counsellor & Facilitator at The Parent Centre in Wynberg from 2012 to 2015. I opened my Private Practice in 2014.
I focus on building Emotional Intelligence(EQ) and Consciousness, my services include:
Play therapy for children from the age of 7
Individual and Couple Counselling
What is EQ?
Knowing your own emotions,
Recognizing and being sensitive to other people’s emotions,
Knowing how to calm yourself when you are upset,
Developing the skills of restraint – knowing when it is wise not to say or do something.
Often when challenges can become too much to handle on your own, the emotional support of counselling is beneficial. Having a support system, be it an empathetic ear in the form of a partner, family, friends or a club is crucial in periods of emotional distress. Unfortunately, this is not the case for everyone but it does not mean that you should deal with this on your own. Getting support is a sign of your courage, not your shortcoming or imperfection.
As a Registered Counsellor, I do short term counselling up to 8 sessions so the focus is goal directed while offering the support needed.
If you need help with any of these, please do not hesitate to contact me for an appointment or if you have any questions:

All sessions are payable upfront and can be claimed back from your medical aid. Please confirm with your scheme if you require a referral or authorisation in order to be reimbursed.
According to Psychologist Dr Randy Cale, Parent Coaching is as follows:
Parent Coaching is specific to helping parents resolve behavioural struggles with their children. These parent-child struggles may range from the typical challenges of daily parenting life— such as morning routines, homework struggles or sibling bickering. However, more often parents call for Parent Coaching when faced with more demanding behaviours that push the limits of their parenting—including the strong-willed child, the picky eater, the angry, disrespectful child or teen, the defiant, oppositional son or daughter and even kids with constant Attention Deficit issues. ”
Navigating the challenges of life is difficult and often just the right set of information can point us in the right direction, turn a normal event to an exceptional one.
Some other topics include :
Emotional Intelligence (EQ)
Parenting – in general
The Five Love Languages

What is Play Therapy? It is a way of being present with the child, following their process using play as the medium to communicate. It factors in their unique developmental level, temperament, birth order and Love Language (the latter three are specific to my method) to provide them with tools and skills to best manage their challenges be it anxiety, anger management, bullying, friend drama and so much more. I see children from the age of 6 years old to teens.
