About the founder of my therapy-

Riaan van Wyk

Riaan van Wyk (MSexologiae, BSc (HonsL) Psych, BEng (Hons), the Founder of the My Therapy Therapeutic Centre, is a Behaviour Scientist, Relationship- and Sex Therapist.  He is currently busy with a PhD (with promotors Dr Johann Lemmer (Academy of Sexology International) and Prof. Ras van Niekerk (UNISA)) in developing a new treatment protocol for female desire/arousal disorder.

He started his career as an Engineer but his interest in human behaviour was relentless and drove him to pursue his true passion – the Human Sciences.  He has an in-depth knowledge of psychology, human behaviour, therapeutic interventions as well as human sexuality from a universal integralistic perspective.  He further upskilled himself with post graduate studies in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (Beck), Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (Ellis & Dryden), Rational Behaviour Therapy (Maultzby) as well as Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (Pederson’s expansion on Linehan), Intimacy Based Relationship Therapy (Van Wyk), Emotion Focussed Therapy (Johnson) as well as Universal Integralistic Based Sex Therapy (Binick, Leiblum, Lemmer).

Riaan developed an intervention cum therapeutic framework to match the needs of clients with the correct practitioners to ensure that a client is in therapy for as short a time as possible but as long as is necessary.  He also developed other proprietary researched interventions; a methodology called Dream/Purpose Extraction and a coaching cum consulting-based program called Design Your Life – Personal Strategy.

Riaan and his team of Interventionists (Sexologists, Psychotherapists, Human Performance Specialists & Social Workers), help people cultivate healthy thinking, feeling and behaviour in life, at work, in relationships and in their sexuality.
