My name is Khumo I am 23 years old and a BPsych Equivalent student. I recently graduated with a degree in Psychology with Cornerstone Institute.
I am originally from Midrand in Johannesburg and moved to Pretoria at the age of 14. My mother and two sisters live in Pretoria while I live in Cape Town completing my studies. I recently lost my dad in 2015 which was a great loss and still a huge adjustment for me and the rest of my family.
I chose to study the BPsych Equivalent because of the important role counsellors from my church played in helping me to deal with the loss of my father. There are trained professionals who deal with the psychosocial and psychological needs of people and yet I feel not a lot of people know the benefit of such services and certainly not in my community back home.
