Lesley-Anne Chorn-Psychologist-Plumstead, Cape Town
I am a holistically orientated person, with an understanding that the mind, emotions, body and soul are intimately connected, so that each affects the other. When one gets out of balance, it throws the whole system out of balance. Getting to the root of the imbalance, and healing it, is what interests me.
JOHANNESBURG - A small silver and blue plaque with the words "Mandela's Place" mounted on the brick wall of a small, dilapidated row house is the only recognition of the world-famous statesman who once lived there: Nelson Mandela.
There aren't even any signs in the sprawling Alexandra township to help visitors find their way along trash-strewn streets to get to the house. But the dusty and dangerous slum itself serves as a bleak reminder that nearly 20 years after Mandela became president, many of South Africa's black communities remain mired in poverty.

Counselling or psychotherapy is an interpersonal relationship with the aim to improve an individuals well being. It is essentially a talk therapy in which a variety of techniques are used to improve the mental wellbeing of an individual.
I am apsychologist who aims to provide a safe and supportive space in which individuals can explore and process difficult issues. I provide both short term counselling and longer term psychotherapy. Short term counselling assists individuals who are having difficulties adjusting to stressful life circumstances. Longer term therapy aims to facilitate personal development and growth. I work together with the individual to gain insight and understanding of behavioural patterns and relationships, as well as providing perspective and clarity on themselves and their interactions with the world around them.
I work with children, adolescents and adults on a variety of themes including:
Work related issues Stress Anxiety Loss and grief Trauma Mood difficulties Anger Relationships Parenting Child behavioural difficulties
A cast is meant to hold broken bones in place until it heals. Casts help to immobilise the immediate areas around an injured joint and reduces muscular contractions, preventing further movement at the injury site. It holds the entire broken bone in the correct alignment while allowing it to heal naturally. It can either be placed to prevent surgery for minor cases or as a protective barrier after surgery depending on the seriousness of the injury. However, casts are bulky and rigid things that make movement extremely difficult. Let's look at some ways to survive the cast.
Your best friend throughout your time in a cast would probably be your crutches. Since movements will be severely hindered, you will definitely need assistance to move around. It is impractical to ask your family and friends to help you all the time so this is where crutches come into the picture. Crutches can help you to move around much easier and reduce dependency on your loved ones.
Wheelchair is another possible means to move around in a much more comfortable method. However, wheelchairs will cause inconvenience to those around you due to the size of it and although you are more comfortable, there are more limitations to what you can do. For example, you can easily board a bus using crutches but it is impossible to board a bus that is not equipped for wheelchairs.
Elevate your legs
Prolonged periods of being in a cast can cause blood to concentrate at the injury site due to the sheer weight of it and gravity acting on it. As such, if your legs are in a cast, you should try to elevate it in a position above your heart whenever you can. Elevating above the heart will allow for proper blood circulation and promote a speedier healing process. This is especially important during your sleep whereby your feet will be in the position for at least 7 hours. Prop your legs up using multiple pillows and reduce the chances of Deep Vein Thrombosis.
Ice will help to decrease the swelling and relieve pain. However, make sure you do not cause the cast to become wet or it might start to affect the integrity of it. To prevent this from happening, place some ice inside a small plastic bag and wrap it with a towel. When possible, ice the injured region for 15 minutes every hour. This will definitely speed up healing.
Casts are bulky protective items that help to protect your injured joint or bone. It immobilises the injured part and ensures proper alignment is met during the recovery phase. As Psychologist in Fourways such, it will cause inconvenience to our lives and much adjustment has to be made. However, it is a crucial part of the healing process and if this step goes wrong, our joints will be affected for life.
