“I was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, Bipolar and obsessive compulsive behaviours, due to trauma at an early age. All my life I struggled with extreme moods, unstable relationships, impulsiveness and self-destructive behaviours, which was difficult to treat. I was in and out of psychiatric wards, without a successful recovery, and visited psychologists and psychiatrists, looking for relief, but no one could ease my pain. When I arrived at PTC, I had little hope, based on my past experiences, but after intensive therapy I learnt that recovery is possible. I was given skills to manage and process my thoughts, emotions, impulses and behaviours, and addressed my underlying beliefs. I learnt about core values and anti-values, and that I am in control of gaining happiness and fulfillment. My anger towards those who hurt me was dissolved, as well as my guilt towards myself. My self-esteem has grown, my self-hatred is gone, and I feel like I can breathe. Of all the journeys I have had in my life, this one was worthwhile.”

Baie dankie vir alles wat jy vir my gedoen het. Ek waardeer dit baie. Jy het my baie gehelp. Dankie dat ek weer ‘n lewe kan he.

Ronelle is a wonderful lady who has the ability to make you laugh when you’re in the middle of a rather dreary therapy session. 
She is full of wisdom and helps you to figure out solutions to problems without spoon feeding them to you. She makes you work and think, thus making the feeling of finding a solution even more satisfying. 
She saved my mental health because without her I would have been in a terrible state of mind. 
I have recommended her services to others and will continue to do so for as long as need be. 
I am grateful to have her in my life
Kind regards

Dear Ronelle, Thank you so much for your invaluable help and guidance. When I first came to you I thought I was the only one in the world with the issues that confronted me. However, after just 3 coaching sessions I had a completely different perspective and a world of newfound confidence. Your combination of empathy and theory was amazing because it has given me new insight into how our subconscious mind works and this has benefited me in many ways… well beyond the concerns that initially troubled me. I am happy to report that everything is back to normal and I am putting your guidance to work every day. With sincere gratitude,

Dear Ronelle
I would like to thank you for the brilliant workshop you presented on the 31st of October
Very confronting but useful lessons that are possible to execute at work and the “know how” on how to do so.
The program was really very informative and challenging. Good examples on all modules and outcomes were given and good opportunities were given to me to explore and go beyond my comfort zones. I especially enjoyed the work presented on Ecometrics and anthropology. I am also very impressed with the brilliant workshop book you have put together that explains every module so clearly and complete, it gave me an enormous amount of insight into the work
I look forward handling the subjects that has not yet been completed by implementing the very useful skills discovered during this workshop
It was an amazing experience and I feel very inspired and motivated to implement those modules in my working environment. I have enjoyed the challenges and learnt so much
You are an excellent Dean and I appreciate all the preparation and effort you have put in to present this workshop so brilliantly! I thoroughly enjoyed having you as facilitator.
I am so thankful that I had this opportunity. It was really empowering.
Kind Regards

Thank you, Ronelle, for the very informative, encouraging and motivating (one-on-on online) Coaching Course. You helped me to gain a better perspective on some of the diverse practical applications of coaching variations, most importantly and specifically with a Biblical perspective. Your online manner is as warm and welcoming as you truly are in face-to-face courses and workshops. Thankfully, you patiently and openly welcomed my interruptions, and took the time to ensure that I gained understanding and insight into that which I wrestled with. Naturally I felt nervous, anxious, fearful or simply broke out in the sweats prior and sometimes during a practical session on video as it was all new to me. Yet – I shout out to all – just dive in and do it (perhaps you’ll sink like I did, as have all those more experienced than ourself). My initial fear was only partly to do with making things worse for the client than they were before they had arrived. I declare it – initially much of the fear, nerves, anxiousness (and sweats) was to do with my self-pride – what if I mess up, what if the client thinks less of me, what will my voice sound like on video, what about my facial expressions, how bad will I really be, what if I’m no good after all, what will Ronelle think of me, what will she say, what if I fail? Fact is, I did mess up! Ronelle picked up the pieces of me that felt shattered, she helped me put them together in a better pattern so that I learned what to do differently, how to do it differently. From the second practical session up to the last one my awareness of self became humility plus gratefulness in the joy of learning from my mistakes and my focus being fully my client. Ronelle walked with me encouraging and discouraging me correctly with love and more training – I had a few hearty laughs at myself with her enjoying witnessing the growth she had helped me achieve. I;m confident to spontaneously apply any one of those diverse practical applications of coaching she so excellently taught me.

Hiermee wil ek graag vir Ronelle ñ verwysing gee vir die naweek se ‘Workshop’ bygewoon op 8-10 April.
Die het verseker my verwagtinge oortref, ek het met baie vrae gekom en met Ronelle se baie effektiewe en Professionele aanbieding (tog die gevoel van ‘ek belong’) het vir my gerustelling gebied.
Ek is steeds baie opgewonde en meer gedetermineerd om ñ sukses hiervan te maak. Ek is oorweldig met die feit dat ek ñ Passievolle Mentor gekry het, Ronelle se uitkyk op Perspektief en haar benadering is aansteeklik.
Die ‘Workshop’ was gevul met ñ oorvloed van kennis…(van dit verwerk ek steeds) Ons kon lekker gesels asook vrae was goed verduidelik. Die vrymoedigheid van die Gees wat welkom was – is van onmerkbare waarde.
Wens ek kon elke ‘Workshop’ bywoon.
Dankie Ronelle jou voetspore is reeds in my hart ingeplant.

Dear Ronelle, You have truly been a guardian angel sent from God to save me. I came to you broken and lost, completely in despair with plans of how it would be best to end my life because I simply didn’t think I could go on any longer, the weight had just got too much to bare. I was struggling with addictions and childhood sexual abuse – the full facts of this I wasn’t even aware of when I first met you. Throughout our time together I have found myself again through God, nothing short of a miracle has taken place to enable the breakthrough that I have had through our sessions together. The tools you have enabled me with, your approach and all the homework – there was A LOT! Have all been vital parts of ensuring that I came through this journey. It’s been far from easy, I’ve been on the biggest emotional roller coaster I’ve ever experienced and I know that I still have a lot to work on and that will probably be the way for the rest of my life as a survivor but the fact is now I have learnt to forgive and I’ve been set free. I’ve learnt to forgive the person who assaulted me, my mum, my dad and myself. I now know I have a purpose in life and it’s to live my life, for myself through God following the path he has created for me and that feels amazing. I cannot thank you enough Ronelle for everything you have done to help me through this part of my journey, you helped me become born again and for that I am eternally thankful

Client – 11 February 2016

I have known Ronelle for many years and bear witness to the positive change of hundreds of people of all ages , gender, creed and in any walks of life; not only her clients; who had the opportunity to spend time with Ronelle. I am honored to be her colleague and friend and thank God for her and her love for Him and others.

I started my therapy journey with Ronelle Joubert in the month of May 2014, and was it an eye opener for me! I could see and experience that I had a lot to learn from her. It was my first time that I received any type of therapy and therefore I didn’t know what to expect at first. I always refer a person to Ronelle who needs guidance in life. She can be trusted with your secrets and your life-happenings. Ronelle was excellent in showing me how to transform my thoughts and I learnt from her that if it was not for the cracks in my life then I also would not see the light.

Workshop 8April – 10April 2016
I was very pleased with these workshop days. I have learned so many new and interesting things that will definitely make me a more affective therapist in the future. The atmosphere was great and the teacher, Ronelle Joubert, was amazing. She explained everything very well and helped us in the best way that she possibly could. I am very thankful for all her time and effort.
The weekend was an eye-opener to many things in my life, and a true blessing.
Thank you

I was very impress with the workshop as well as with Ronelle Joubert. The way she presented the workshop was eye opening. I went thinking that I am going to get a workshop that will help met just to understand Ecometrics but what I got was more than just a workshop. Ronelle didn’t just give me the information that I needed to know, she gave me the extra background to help me understand why I need to know the information and how it works. I will recommend attending her workshop for all students on level one certificate course in functional therapy and any other workshops Ronelle have throughout the year.

Goeie middag Ronelle
Baie dankie vir die opleiding Saterdag. Dit was lekker om jul almal te ontmoet en te hoor/sien watter werk jul doen met kinders en grootmense wat hulp nodig het.
Terugvoer tov kurses:   Pastoral Counselling Course, Children and the Process of Loss, Grief and Mourning
Ek voel die aanbieding en die handleing van die kurses was baie goed asook die onderwerpe in die program wat behandel is, tov die tyd wat tot ons beskikking was.  Die onderwerp van die opleiding is baie wyd en die kurses kan meer ure in beslag neem alhoewel ek voel wat ons geleer het tydens die opleiding ons ‘n goeie oorsig gegee het en voldoende was.
Ek het baat gevind by die praktiese voorbeelde van hoe jy met ‘n kind kan werk tydens rouberading, en was ek bly om te hoor dat ek op die regte pad is met my kinders wat ek al gesien het wat iemand wat na aan hul was aan die dood afgestaan het.
Ek sal graag meer inligting wou gehad het oor die hulpverlening aan kinders wat uit ‘n gebroke huis kom,  en hoe hul die egskeiding van hul ouers beter kan hanteer i.e Terapeutiese aktiwiteite wat gebruik kan word wat dalk goed sal werk met hierdie kinders – alhoewel ek dink dit amper in ‘n kurses van sy eie kan wees.
Die opleiding het my gehelp om introspeksie te doen en weer te kyk na my as ouer en hoe ek my kinders se gevoelens en gedrag lees, en om seker te maak dat ek nie iets mis nie.   
Ek sal die opleiding aanbeveel vir enige ouer. Hoop die terugvoer is voldoende.
Baie dankie weereens!!

To whom it may concern: I started my therapy journey with Ronelle Joubert in the month of May 2014, and was it an eye opener for me! I could see and experience that I had a lot to learn from her. It was my first time that I received any type of therapy and therefore I didn’t know what to expect at first. In the first few sessions she sketched me the bigger picture and I exactly knew what was expected from me. Ronelle has a vast amount of knowledge and skills and she always has a refreshing and positive attitude. Ronelle has a friendly warm, vibrant and forthcoming personality that welcomes you warm heartedly with each and every session. Furthermore, Ronelle is enthusiastic, dynamic, strong minded and very passionate as a Functional Therapist. Her performance in her work is highly commendable. Ronelle just has unique methods and techniques to help you deal with your past. She guides you to make contact with your inner self, to understand your inner self and to bond with your inner self. She has the ability to eventually take you out of your comfort zone in order to equip and surround you with a new perspective of life. If it was not for Ronelle I would have been stuck in my old selfish world. I have learnt so much from her: She taught me how to practice perseverance, to be consistent with my behaviour and actions, to love and to be true to myself. Ronelle assisted and supported me when I needed it most. She always made me feel important. This uplifted me and helped me gain back myself worth and self-confidence. Going through therapy journey with her made me realize to appreciate all the little things in life. Ronelle has the ability to bring you closer to God and to help you to be grateful and joyful. God became my anchor in my life. Ronelle also showed me how to have a purpose driven life, and that is not to strive towards goals nor hobbies, etc. but to serve God and to rejoice in Him. Ronelle showed me the value of having friends. You got to do it by yourself, but you can’t do it alone. Ronelle assists and guides one to a much better version of oneself. I always refer a person to Ronelle who needs guidance in life. She can be trusted with your secrets and your life-happenings. Ronelle was excellent in showing me how to transform my thoughts and I learnt from her that if it was not for the cracks in my life then I also would not see the light. May Ronelle serve the Lord with her great talent to uplift, and touch lives of people for years to come. With Ronelle, I have experienced a well-formed life transformation.
