About me

My name Nompumelelo Prudence Kubeka I am a Traditional Healer and Clinical Psychologist in private practice. I studied Bachelor of Science degree in Human Physiology and Psychology undergrad. I then did my Honours in Psychology degree at the University of Johannesburg.  I then went to do my Masters of Art in Clinical Psychology degree at the University of Pretoria.  I was trained psychodynamically and I appreciate Carl Jung’s work on the collective unconscious and archetypes. I resonate with him more especially with having a spiritual gift.   I am registered with the HPCSA and BHF as a licensed Clinical Psychologist.

My private practice is called NPK Clinical Psychologist and it is based in Mondeor (Johannesburg South).  I also work as a sessional psychologist at Akeso psychiatric clinic in Alberton. I incorporates my work of being a traditional healer and a psychologist in my practice and while adhering to the HPCSA scope of practice.

 I did my internship at Weskoppies Psychiatric hospital.   I then worked at the Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic hospital as Clinical Psychologist in community service and also as qualified Clinical Psychologist. While completing my magister and internship at Weskoppies Psychiatric hospital, I went through my process of ukuthwasa to become a traditional healing and graduated in 2016 as a traditional healer.  My thesis The Psychological Perspective on Zulu Ancestral Calling: A Phenomenological Study (2016, UP, Pretoria), written while I was undergoing her process, is based on my understanding and submission to the ancestral calling. I also part of a dialogue between Jungian analysts and traditional healers through South African Association of Jungian Analysts (SAAJAH)
