• Who We Are

    "We're on a mission to make sure you are armed to face the challenges of our modern lives"

    Dr Retha Jansen van Rensburg

    General Practitioner

    I am a general practitioner in private practice, who at times turns into a mother of three children and wife. My fields of expertise are general health, exercise medicine, concussion, health, psychology and well-being. I conducted research on concussion and have presented my research at a congress for Sports and Exercise Medicine in South Africa. I hold a MBChB degree from the University of Pretoria, Diplomas in Family Medicine, Child Health, Obstetrics and Mental Health, as well as a MBA and a Master’s degree in Sports and Exercise medicine. Originally from South Africa, I am a native speaker of Afrikaans and English with a smattering of Tswana.


    I am dedicated to increasing the emotional and physical health, well-being and fulfillment of my patients. I want to make information on health and well-being available to people that strive to be in excellent health and control their health destiny. I not only want to motivate them, but also want to help them be healthier and solve the obstacles that makes achieving this difficult. My goal is to make people healthier, enjoying their life to the utmost!

    Dr Henriette Smith



    I am a psychiatrist with more than 20 years experience. I graduated with MBChB with distinction in Psychiatry from the University of Pretoria in 1992 and did a Diploma in Obstetrics in 1995. I specialized in Psychiatry with MMed(Psych) with distinction in 2000. I regularly attend local and international conferences to ensure I am always updated on the latest knowledge in my field.


    I have extensive experience in treating major depression, anxiety disorders, bipolar mood disorder, substance use disorders, schizophrenia, disorders of cognition such as dementia and ADHD.


    My special fields of interest are the anxiety disorders, depression and bipolar mood disorder. I am especially interested in the integration of a person to become the most you can be. Therefore, breaking down the stigma around psychiatric illnesses by providing knowledge about all the different aspects of personal wellbeing. I believe in holistic care, involving psychopharmacology (medication), psychotherapy, physical, emotional, spiritual and occupational interventions to promote wellbeing.


    My motto is: "Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's learning to dance in the rain!"

    Dr Elizma van der Smit

    Clinical Psychologist

    I have been practicing clinical psychology for over two decades,my extensive experience has been my greatest teacher. I am especially interested in working with relationships, anger and personal development. Working with depression and anxiety disorders is also one of my greatest passions. I love helping, and it is imperative to me that a person who is hurting must get the right information, leading them on a healing path. I always set clear goals to determine our therapeutic path and often use cognitive therapy to attain these goals. My primary focus in therapy is to provide options, where a person might feel that there is no option available.


    I hold master’s degrees in Clinical Psychology and Personal and Professional Leadership as well as a PhD in Clinical Psychology.


    My motto in life is “life is full of cacti, but we don’t have to sit on it"!
