Let our Relationship Specialist help you save and improve your relationship with our unique, proven approach.


This unique protocol is unique and specific to My Therapy


Because other models simply weren’t enough for last chance couples

  1. Traditional counselling models traditionally only has a 53% success rate; coupled with the sexual component of intimate romantic relationships, the success rate of these interventions go up to only 59%
  2. RIBT – incorporates emotional intimacy, which improves the success rate to 78% and with our unique combination of Rationality and Emotionality, our success rate is just over 80%.
  3. Rational – This part of the therapeutic intervention shows how we interpret each other’s behaviour through our own lens of meaning.
  4. Intimacy – Here we focus on creating a safe emotional space for each other where we can re-establish our emotional connection.
  5. Therapy – Means we go deeper than counselling. We work with each person’s attachment styles and do in depth family of origin work to really repair the damage to the relationship and not just agree to disagree.

Principles of Relationship Therapy

Rescue and enrich your relationship

  1. It helps the couple to redefine their relationship in a rational and emotionally focused way
  2. It identifies and modifies blaming and/or emotional withdrawal behaviour
  3. It identifies and modifies dysfunctional behaviour in the individuals as well as in the interactions between them
  4. It improves communication and promotes emotional maturity
  5. It treats problems from earlier in the individuals’ lives and focuses on using their uniqueness and strengths to create a safe haven for each other


Learn to enjoy your relationship again

  1. Your relationship is as important to us as it is to you, but you as an individual is more important.

About Your Therapist

Riaan van Wyk

MSexologiae (Cum Laude), BSc (Hons-NDP) Therapeutic Psychology (Cum Laude), BEng (Hons)

I am an Integrated Psychotherapist, Traumatologist, Sexologist and Relationship Specialist. I am fortunate enough to co-own My Therapy International with my wife, Anna-Mart van Wyk, who practices a Holistic Therapist and a Neuro-Behavioural Coach.

It might surprise you that I started my career as an Engineer, as it was the “logical choice” in the era when I attended varsity, but my interest in human behaviour was relentless and I ended up reading twice as many books on Psychology as on Engineering while qualifying as an Engineer.  After having practiced as a Metallurgical Engineer for a couple of years, I finally made the “right choice” and pursued my true passion – the Human Sciences.

My Engineering studies contributed greatly to me being the Therapist I am today as it caused me to be very critical of therapeutic interventions that lack the scientific credibility and proven track record to back them up.  I therefore only use therapeutic models that are evidence-based and validated by science to ensure my patients get results.

I think differently to other Therapists and I integrate many models to ensure that my patients receive the optimal level of care to truly help them.  I can’t help but be outcomes orientated and feel a huge sense of responsibility to make a real, tangible difference.

Although, I use many different intervention protocols, I have a special love and intimate knowledge of these therapies as they work –

  • Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (Fosha)
  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (Beck)
  • Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (Ellis & Dryden)
  • Rational Behaviour Therapy (Maultzby)
  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (Pederson’s expansion on Linehan)
  • Internal Family Systems Therapy (Schwartz)

As a result, the majority of interventions that I use are based on principles from the abovementioned therapies.

In all that we do, we only use reliable therapies and for that reason, our results are predictable.

We believe that patients should be in therapy for as short as possible and as long as is absolutely necessary and we do not want to make people dependant on therapy, but rather equip them with skills to thrive.

My wife and I are passionate about offering people a holistic solution to well-being – first heal and then excel and learn new skills to sustain the progress that you have made long-term.

Life is magical and the magic starts with hope.  We believe that we are essentially Hope Merchants by trade; and we just happen to use Therapy to give people exactly that – HOPE.

– Riaan van Wyk

How our other patients felt

Riaan guides you to heal yourself with perspective and practical application. He matched my pace and took my wounds as seriously and critically as I did.

Riaan has explained the cause of all my problems, and provides effective therapy with real results. Couldn’t recommend him highly enough.

Riaan’s multi-disciplinary background really made him stand out relative to other therapists I have worked with. He was able to back up concepts with material evidence and explain them well, which helped me overcome skepticism towards some therapeutic techniques that otherwise feel “fluffy”. Very powerful when combined with his excitement about emergent approaches, his deep desire to help people, and last but not least, his seemingly infinite patience.

When you have no hope, no way forward. Feel caught up in everything and you cannot bear the pain anymore…then you meet Riaan. The person who saved my life. The highest level of knowledge, skill and empathy.

Riaan is a great therapist.  He knows what he is talking about and he has a huge knowledge in mental health. He listens carefully and is there when i need him.
