Facilitating Your Recovery


Eclectic Individual Centric Approach

Flailed Emotions

Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways.  — Sigmund Freud

Forward Thinking

The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction, not a destination.                          – David Richo


Our words are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us.                                          – David Richo

Battle Cry

At any given moment you have the power to say: ‘ This is not how the story is going to end’                    – Battle Cry PTSD

My Vision for You

I want to help you to create a life that feels good on the inside, not just one that looks good on the outside.

Esté Pistorius


I am a registered Psychologist with 25 years experience in private practice, working with children from the age of 3, teenagers and adults. My passion for life and people, and for the ‘wounded soul’, drives me to touch each patient’s soul via psychotherapy, and then fill the scars and wounds with gold, as the ancient Japanese use to do with their broken items, thus recognising beauty in our brokenness. 

I am also an internationally registered Equine Assisted Psychotherapist, where horses form part of my therapeutic team.
I am the owner of the Bloemfontein branch of Action Factory, the leading NLP-Life Coach training institute in South Africa.
Furthermore, I am an internationally registered NLP practitioner using Neuro-Linguistic Programming Techniques to address various problems, psychopathology and trauma.
Also being an international certified Life Coach, assisting you and/or your business to become the person you believe you can be…..and to celebrate life.
I believe that healing must occur on all levels: body, mind and soul, thus a holistic approach, I also received my international certification as Body Coach – coaching people how to Move Right, Think Right and Eat Right.
Recognising the power and beauty of the subconscious mind, I obtained my Certification for Hypnotherapy, probably one of the most powerful methods to heal broken souls.
My passion for music and art, with my B.A.Mus-degree (violin and piano), also enables me to touch children’s lives via music therapy, also teaching them to play an instrument at the same time.
I am also involved in a Drugs-And-Alcohol-Rehabilitation Program, as I did my diploma in Support of Alcoholics.
Since 2016 I am a Basic Life Support Provider registered with the Resuscitation Council of Southern Africa.
