I am a humanistic person , I value people for their human values as individuals. I enjoy helping , writing and reading as hobbies . I am interested in becoming a counseling psychologist and I am currently studying my honours degree in psychology. I want volunteer for lets connect because I believe that everything you do can make an impact no matter how small or insignificant it may seem , thus I want to use what I have learned to help in anyway I can. I like to think I have overcome quite a few challenges in my live from being a mother at the age of 15 to facing a huge amount of bullying because of it, and I would suffer social anxiety because of it I would lock myself in the house for days and breakdown every time I had to go out . I am lucky that I got support and that got me through it . that is what drew me to study psychology and that why I want to help others who are going through their low periods.
I was an alcoholic for many years. I drank to numb the pain, because I didn’t know any other way to cope with the mental pain I was experiencing. But God is good, and I was able to stop drinking, and I am now 17 years sober. I knew something was not quite right, but I didn’t know what it was. It turned out, I have Male Borderline Personality Disorder, ADHD, and High Functioning Autism. I am now in recovery, I practice my DBT skills daily. I do still have those ‘moments’ where I get triggered and just lose my cool, but those moments are becoming father and farther apart. I’m open to talk about anything. I’m not an expert, but I can share you things that work for me. Don’t hesitate to connect with me. Just leave me a message and I will reply you as soon as I can. This is my favorite proverb, “No matter how far you’ve gone down the wrong road, turn back. “

I am currently a 3rd year Psychology student, as well as a part time tutor for school kids. I love working with people which is why my passion lies in this field.

My name is Mfihlo Rikhotso. I'm 23 years old. I'm doing counseling psychology in unisa. I'm very passionate to help people pick up themselves for different life challenges that they come across in life. I was raised by a single parent. My dad rejected me after I was born saying I wasn't his child. Growing up without both parents was hard worst part knowing that your dad is alive somewhere but he choose to left you. Life haven't been easy for me but all in all I survived the storms. I'm now the strongest woman on earth. I'm courageous, ambitious. I'm chasing my dreams. I'm a good listener and I'm so ready to change people's life by giving them a hearing and counseling them.
My name's Hillary, I’m 27 years old, and I was born and raised in a small Italian hamlet with 100 inhabitants. No wonder why, after I graduated from High School and worked in the family business for one year, I decided to leave my hometown and go on an adventure to discover the world. I ventured into the most diverse jobs to survive abroad: the waitress, the dog groomer, the hostess, the customer service representative, the teacher, and the Au Pair, to name a few. By doing so, I not only visited about 30 countries and lived in 5 of them, but I also developed a great passion for traditions, diversity, history, nature, and people. For the past two years, I decided to settle in Cape Town and dedicate myself to psychology to deepen the many questions about human nature that have inevitably arisen during my travels. At present, I collaborate as a guest writer with a non-profit organisation aimed at seeking educational opportunities for African students. I would like to get engaged with more volunteering opportunities to grow closer to my community, support those who are in need, and gaining practical experience in a field that can be relevant to my studies. Studying online, I have to face the issue of isolation. It doesn't only put a strain on my motivation from time to time; it also makes it challenging to gaining a practical understanding of psychology. I see volunteering as a solution to overcome the difficulties that I’m encountering while studying online. I have a great passion for psychology, and I want to maximise the opportunities to learn as much as I can about it, also to understand which branch of the subject best suits my skills and personality. In the future, I hope to contribute by doing some good to our society, reminding as many people as possible that sobriety is the quintessence of happiness and that the more we economise every single aspect of our daily life, the more we move away from the purest meaning of it. I believe that in education lies the hope for a better future. It can give the opportunity for a more significant number of people to reflect, reason and, perhaps, escape from difficult situations.
Sono una laureanda in Psicologia Clinica, con una laurea in Scienze e Tecniche Psicologiche. Nei momenti più difficili della mia vita, quelli durante i quali credi che nessuno possa capirti, ho avuto l'Arte come compagna delle mie notti insonni. Grazie all'arte sono poi riuscita a trovare le parole per spiegare e ad accorgermi che in realtà c'erano tante persone pronte ad ascoltare. C'è sempre qualcosa o qualcuno in grado di tirarti in salvo, l'importante è tendere la mano per poter trovare quella dell'altro.
