Nicola Munroe is our Clinical Psychologist. She divides her time between private clinical
practice in Nelspruit, White River Manor and neuropsychological medico-legal report writing.
She has been practising as a Clinical Psychologist for 14 years.
Nicola believes in a client-centred and tailored approach to psychotherapy that is driven by
the client’s needs and considers each individual holistically, including one’s context,
personality, communication style, background, spirituality and biology.
Cognitive behavioural Therapy, Solution Focused Methods, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy,
Enneagram Work, Narrative Approaches, Guided Imagery and Psychodynamics are some of the
approaches she draws from.
Nicola completed her Bachelor of Social Science Degree in Psychology (2001, Summa Cum
Laude), an Honours Degree in Psychology (2002, Cum Laude) and an MA Degree in Clinical
Psychology (2004, Cum Laude) at the University of KwaZulu Natal.
She is a member of the Golden Key Society and has completed an honours research in the field
of sport psychology and exercise and running addiction. Her Master’s Thesis investigated the
role of forgiveness and unforgiveness in psychological health.
She completed her internship at two psychiatric hospitals (Fort Napier Psychiatric Hospital and
Town Hill Psychiatric Hospital) as well as a trauma counselling centre and a child and family
assessment centre. Nicola has also worked in Durban in the field of Neuropsychology, doing an
assessment, therapy and cognitive rehabilitation with patients who had sustained head trauma or
who were diagnosed with neuropsychiatric disorders. This is where her passion and fascination
with the brain began. Since then, Nicola has annually attended the NASA (Neurological
Association of South Africa) Congress and continues to work in the field of neuropsychology
My focus has been on developing a personalised approach to therapy where a
thorough investigation of the clients’ needs is conducted in order to
discover one’s unmet needs.
