About Eleen Polson:

I am Eleen Polson, a counselling psychologist with a specialisation in body-mind psychotherapy and expressive arts therapy. For the past 25 years, I have developed a unique approach to helping clients access their innate body wisdom to facilitate growth and healing. I combine traditional psychotherapeutic techniques with body-work, TRE (trauma release exercises), movement, art and music to facilitate insight and change.

I work with adults, teenagers and children on an individual, in-depth therapeutic level to customize interventions for their specific needs. I offer expressive arts therapy retreats and TRE (trauma release exercises) in a group context.

Gain an understanding of how I work by viewing my on-line course Grow&Heal~tips&tools to upgrade human connections .

My studio practice is in Clydesdale (near Pretoria Girls High School), and from time to time at Hoogland Health Hydro.


In our demanding lives, we all sometimes need a helping hand to assist us in leading joyous and meaningful lives.  I am a counselling psychologist and a healer.  I am also a daughter, mother, spouse, contemplative pilgrim, writer and artist.  My practice is centred on a belief in the healing and freeing power of deep connection to all aspects of life – to our deeper self, to our body, our soul, our needs and feelings, and to each other and our world.  This connection assists people in working through difficulties and leading more fulfilled lives. In this journey towards wholeness, we need to work with the body, mind and soul.  

To support my holistic approach and multi-disciplinary practice, I draw on both traditional psychotherapeutic techniques and on the unique and powerful contributions of body-work, music and movement, mindfulness, visualisation and breathing.   I have also specialised in short-term therapy, making a difference one session at a time.

I conduct workshops nationwide.
