Nurture Your Emotional Health

Individual and Family Support for Emotional Well-being 


Lubbe, PhD


Meet Carien...

(pronounced Kah-reen)

Our inner world of emotions and sensations intrigues me, and this is where and how I help people: to live in a more regulated way.

Self-talk and feelings influence our daily lives. When we feel overwhelmed, stressed, worried, or angry all the time, this impacts negatively on our emotional health and mental wellness.


You do not have to go through this on your own. Seeking help and support is a great step to restoring your resilience.

I am excited by the possibility that therapy can foster hope, promote inner healing and enable a sense of enhanced well-being. It is a huge privilege to see people grow and change by actively working towards better outcomes in their lives. I aim to provide a safe, supportive and nurturing space where individuals can heal, connect with their inner selves and ultimately live more optimal and meaningful lives.

​I hold a PhD in Psychology and was a professor at the University of Pretoria before moving to New Zealand. I am a registered Psychologist with the NZ Board for Psychology, and have been practising since 2000.
