Our Patients Are Redefining Success


“I just want to say a big “thank you” for the brilliant counselling sessions for improving my mental health, which was highly affected after I failed in one of my board exams. I thought my career was over. I didn’t feel like taking my studies forward and just wanted to vanish out. But after attending sessions provided by Mantra Care experts I was back on track.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Live, video, or chat-based counselling via your laptop or mobile phone is known as online therapy. The only difference between online counselling and face-to-face therapy is that you can have your consultation from the privacy of your own home. To get started, all you need is a computer or mobile device, a good internet connection, and a quiet private area.

In South Africa, online therapy can be an effective treatment for a variety of mental health disorders. Treatment for Depression, Stress, Anxiety Disorders, Relationship Issues, Trauma, Grief, Loss, Work or Office Issues, Mental Health Issues, Couples Issues, Marriage Issues, LGBTQ Issues, Anger Issues, Dementia/ Alzheimer’s & Panic Attacks are all included.

The following are some of the most popular types of therapy:

The therapist confronts your negative views about yourself and the environment in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). He seeks to change undesired behaviours or treat mental illnesses like depression. For phobias and depression, CBT is a rather short-term treatment.

Client-Cantered Therapy: In this method, the client is the one who initiates the discourse. The duration of the session is determined by the client. The therapist demonstrates a high level of empathy and assists in the development of self-esteem and problem-solving ability.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): To help clients improve motivation, the therapist teaches behavioural skills (mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, and emotion regulation). DBT is frequently used to treat mental health difficulties such as eating disorders, PTSD, personality disorders, and thoughts of self-harm.

Existential Treatment is a type of therapy that promotes self-actualization in the face of life’s reality. Existential therapy assists people in confronting challenging and overwhelming life and death truths.

Gestalt Therapy is a type of psychotherapy that focuses on the present moment. Role playing is frequently used to reconcile disputes from the client’s past.

Therapy is beneficial to everyone, not only those with mental illnesses. Therapy is used by some of the most successful people to stay motivated. A therapist can also assist in the treatment of mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety, body image disorders, and even addiction. A therapist will help to:

  • Understand your feelings
  • Get immediate support (if required)
  • Plan your future
  • Relieve stress, anxiety or pressure

A therapist, often known as a psychologist, is a trained mental health professional who assists clients in improving their mental health. In South Africa, therapists primarily assist clients, whether through in-person or online treatment. They assist their clients in coping with any issues they are facing and in letting go of the past. They assist South African clients in living a better present and future. Better coping skills are also taught by therapists. Therapist job includes:

  • Listen with empathy and understanding
  • Guide clients through stressors and anxieties
  • Analyse past and present events in client’s life
  • Comfort clients
  • Provide a third-party unbiased opinion
  • Be empathetic and teach emotional, cognitive, and communication skills

No medication is prescribed by our therapists or psychologists. Psychiatrists, mental health facilities, and other medical specialists in South Africa are referred to clients as needed.

We believe that therapies should be guided by “need” rather than “financial ability to pay.” We start our counselling sessions at just $10 per session to make counselling more accessible. In South Africa, our sessions are 90% less expensive than typical in-person counselling. As a result, we are one of the most cost-effective options for online therapy in South Africa.

If our counselling proves to be too costly, you can ask the therapist for a direct discount. The majority of therapists do not work for a living. Our therapist will take your request into account and provide a discount based on your condition and needs.

The length of counselling is determined by the client’s unique condition, needs, and obstacles. The number of sessions required vary depending on the ailment and type of treatment. This is something you can address with a therapist at your initial consultation. With 10-15 sessions, many individuals with depression, anxiety, and stress in South Africa report feeling better in 2-3 months. A session can last anywhere from 30 minutes and two hours.

In South Africa, online treatment has been shown to be equally beneficial as in-person counselling. There are several reasons why online counselling is preferable:

Most importantly, online therapy in South Africa is often less expensive than in-person counselling. Rent, utility bills, and other expenses are not included. As a result, the therapists pass on the advantages to you.
No need to travel to a psychologist’s office, sit on the same sofa, or speak with the same therapist. You don’t have to leave the conveniences of your home or office for online treatment. Sitting in your bed, in your pyjamas, talk to your therapist!

Multiple communication modes:

  • Text-based therapy allows you to communicate with therapists at any time of day or week. Your therapist is always responsive. This is the ideal alternative for the socially nervous who want to avoid face-to-face conversation.
  • If you need to rant for a moment or have a lot on your mind, voice messages can help. Without needing to book a lengthy appointment, voice messaging delivers the comfort of hearing a therapist’s voice.
  • If you want to witness a therapist’s reaction and have them react to your body language, video call sessions can be employed. You can opt to spend that quality face-to-face time with us via our app, which is completely secure.

Your Treatment, Your Rules: Most of us in South Africa lead stressful, unbalanced lifestyles, making typical treatment sessions impossible to fit into our schedules. You may control the time, location, and initial direction of your therapeutic engagement with online counselling. It’s freedom that prioritises you, the client seeking mental health help.

You are not limited to therapists near your home in South Africa when you use internet therapy. Local therapists may also be unprepared to handle your specific demands.
