For the past three years SACAP (The South
African College of Applied Psychology) has been offering a highly sought after Bachelor
of Social Science Honours (Psychology) [BPsych Equivalent Programme] at its
Cape Town and Johannesburg campuses. The 18-month programme, which incorporates
an Honours equivalent degree, as well as a 720-hour HPCSA-accredited practicum,
has now been accredited for the SACAP Pretoria campus. The BPsych Equivalent
qualification entitles students to write the Board Exam for eligibility to
become a Registered Counsellor.
Dr Jaclyn Lotter, Academic Head at SACAP, says:
“Despite South Africa’s increasing mental health concerns and the great need to
increase our force of mental health care workers, especially at a community
level, SACAP is one of the country’s few higher education institutions which is
training Registered Counsellors. We
believe in the role of Registered Counsellors like never before. Escalating deprivation, violence, addiction,
trauma and stress in South Africa underpin the prevalence of anxiety and
depression, as well as substance abuse and many other mental health conditions. We have to make quality mental health care
far more accessible, and Registered Counsellors deployed in communities can
make an incredible difference in connecting people to the help that they need.”
Registered Counsellors provide psychological services
focused on prevention as well as primary intervention for people with
psychological difficulties. They can
work in a variety of community settings, making a vital contribution to the
promotion of mental health and combatting stigmas associated with mental health
conditions. SACAP’s BPsych Equivalent
Programme qualifies them to perform psychological screening, basic assessment
and psychological interventions; provide preventative and developmental
counselling services; and deliver psycho-education on a range of topics.
“Our BPsych Equivalent Programme has already proven
highly successful at our Johannesburg and Cape Town campuses, and we are
delighted it has been approved for Pretoria now,” says Lauren Martin, Head of
Teaching and Learning at SACAP’s Pretoria Campus. “SACAP is committed to the
training and development of knowledgeable, skilled and ethical Registered
Counsellors to help address the enormous shortfall of skills in the psychology
profession. There’s a great need for
diversity and innovation in the mental health care landscape, and Registered
Counsellors play a critical role in delivering quality services and improving
Equivalent programme is in line with SACAP’s unique educational philosophy and facilitated
learning style where classrooms are intimate and students work in close contact
with expert educators in Applied Psychology.
Only 15 students are accommodated on each campus. Applications for the 2020 academic year are
open. Enrol now for the BPsych Equivalent programme at SACAP in Pretoria, visit

Today is World Mental Health Day, a day for global mental health education, awareness, and advocacy against social stigma. We encourage everyone to talk about mental health and work towards breaking this stigma that plagues our wellbeing. If you are struggling with anything, please reach out for help.

Charis Psychological Services have a Counselling Psychology internship position available for 2020.
Janse van Rensburg & Breedt Psychology Inc. trading as Charis Psychological Services is a psychology group practice specialising mainly in the physical rehabilitation psychology context. Rehabilitation psychology contributes psychological knowledge and skills to individuals with disabilities and chronic health conditions in order to maximize health and welfare, independence and choice, functional abilities and social role participation across their life span. Patients are seen while they are inpatients as well as on an outpatient basis at various sub-acute and physical rehabilitation hospitals across Gauteng. Although providing psychological services to patients in a medical setting is the main focus on the practice, the outpatient aspect of the practice also services as a generic private practice where children, adults, older adults, couples and families are seen for a variety of emotional difficulties irrespective if they suffer from any health challenges.
