Yvette Erasmus, PsyD. LP
Helping you have healthy, enlivening and satisfying relationships with yourself and others.
Showing you processes and inner maps that will help you transform self-sabotaging habits and disconnected relationships into deeper connection, meaning and purpose.
Would you like to …
- Understand yourself and others more deeply?
- Transform blame and shame into compassion and healing?
- Live into your deepest values with confidence and clarity from your loving, strong inner spirit?
My educational programs, group coaching and personal sessions will give you a welcoming, non-judgmental space where you’ll feel empowered and inspired to develop your inner strength and authentic self.
I grew up living in the spaces between cultures, on the edges, holding opposites.
Born during Apartheid to white South African parents, my father worked as a diplomat for the government, while my mother actively critiqued it.
Growing up between cultures straddling divergent ideologies, I quickly learned that rules for “right and wrong” behavior depended on whose perspective you took and which culture you inhabited.
This began my deeper search for universal principles that transcend and include diversity and the rich variety of human expression on our planet.
I’ve been searching for what’s at the essence of being human (and what it takes for us to live in peace together without losing our individuality) for as long as I can remember.
Over the years, the collective knowledge drawn from multiple cultures has illuminated my path, opened my heart, reconnected me to myself and others, and given me a deep sense of purpose and meaning.
Currently, my work is trauma-informed, grounded in developmental growth and learning processes, and infused with the principles and practices of nonviolence and compassion.
Here is a list of the core principles that deeply inform and guide the way I work and the programs I teach.
I work with life-long learners who believe in the value and power of kind and honest human relationships.
If you’re looking for more inner peace, deeper connections and want to use your life energy to contribute to a more compassionate world, I’d love to work with you.
You’re welcome here.
