About John van Steyn

In practice since 1986, I have extensive experience in working with individuals and couples. My style is supportive, positive and sincere. I offer traditional therapeutic approaches as well as integrating hypnotherapy and mindfulness-based practices to help my clients overcome life’s challenges.

Most people seek counselling because something in their life is out of balance. Taking action toward change in our lives is never easy and many people benefit from the guidance of a competent counsellor. If you choose van Steyn Counselling, you will receive my counselling guarantee, which is:

  1. I will provide a safe, respectful, comfortable and confidential counselling environment.
  2. I will listen. My clients decide where they want to go in counselling. I help them get there.
  3. I will never judge or criticize.



Personal Statement

My personal background has included significant loss, grief, illness and adjustment to disability. I have been blind for 39 years and I believe this is an asset in terms of my approach to counselling. Unaffected by outward appearances, I focus on the essential issues of importance to my clients and help them identify their inner strengths and resources. It is my commitment to offer the people I serve an enjoyable and rewarding experience.
