Michael Kallenbach is a highly experienced couples therapist who may just be the person to help you.

“Therapy can really work for men. Blokes are very bad at talking about their problems” – Alex James, musician and bass player for Blur

He is an intelligent observer with a clear thinking approach: he is an astute listener with a vibrant and creative mind. Michael offers brief and long-term work to couples and individuals, helping them work through a wide range of emotional and behavioural difficulties.

During counselling he will bring clarity and sensitivity to the room, allowing you to hear your story and come to your own conclusions.

This creates a safe space for authentic and open discussion, encouraging self-reflection and facilitating change.

“Once you can talk about what troubles you, you are some way towards handling it”
—Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit, Jeanette Winterson, Prize-winning author

Michael works across the heterosexual and LGBT spectrum, however emotionally rich or challenging the material might be.  He is passionate about helping couples and individuals, and does so in an affirmative, therapeutic way; he believes that when people are listened to with respect, problems and conflicts can be explored in a non-judgmental environment.

Michael qualified at the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships in London (now Tavistock Relationships), the world’s leading organisation for training in couple psychoanalytic psychotherapy.  He has just completed a year-long study course at the Institute of Psychoanalysis. Prior to moving back to Johannesburg, Michael ran two successful private clinics – one in Harley Street, London, the other in Marlborough, Wiltshire.
