At Eugene Viljoen’s practice we work hard at getting the best support, assessment and clinical diagnosis and treatment for all our patients. We believe that everyone should and can have fulfilling sexual relationships, get resolve in conflict situations, and develop personal tactics to combat psychological blockings or rehabilitation of neuro-conditions, in order to live mentally healthier lives.
We believe in doing the right thing, and treating each case situation with the patience, care it deserves. A small adjustment can make all the difference in re-aligning the mind to the right compass direction.
We look at each individual in the context of the situation, background, and their environment to get to a holistic outlook on a case-by-case basis.
Being objective and professional stems from extensive experience and is key to the service we provide.
