Dr Christel Kieser-Muller
Sielkundige | Psychologist
MA (Counsl. Psych) (UP), PhD (Psychology) (NWU)
Christel Kieser-Muller started her professional career as a Town and Regional Planner. She soon realised that a person’s life experiences directly impact on their overall wellbeing. When we experience trauma or severe life stressors, it is not uncommon for our lives to unravel. Often, underlying emotional problems need to be addressed before a lasting improvement in a person’s quality of life can take place.
Through synchronistic events she found her way to psychology. Passionate about the psyche of the city, the transition to psychology was a natural fit.
Christel furthered her studies in Psychology and obtained a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology. She completed her internship at 1 Military Hospital in 2004. During this time, she was exposed to various aspects of psychobiodynamic imbalances and trauma-spectrum manifestations within a diverse demographic and cultural client base.
Her private practice was established in 2005. The focus of the practise is the facilitation of a psychobiodynamic therapeutic process aimed at achieving a balance between the mental, emotional and physical dimensions of a person.
Through the process of healing and growth, clients regain a sense of meaning, purpose and wholeness.
Christel’s own experiences in her work lead to a great passion for the spontaneous healing process of people who have been through traumatic or stressful experiences across their lifespan. This passion culminated in her PhD on The Facilitation of Spontaneous healing in an ageing individual presenting with Complex PTSD: A SHIP perspective, in 2017.
