Asanda Madi
Clinical Psychologist Intern

Chair Person

Asanda Madi is currently completing her Masters in Clinical Psychology at the University of the Witwatersrand. She has also volunteered as a counselor for SADAG (South African Depression and Anxiety Group). Asanda is interested in the relationship between the brain and behavior, as she spends her spare time conducting research and blogging on her flourishing blog []. She holds the verse - Romans 12:2 (“… Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind”) – close to her heart as she believes that what we think influences who we become. She believes that this is in no way esoteric in its meaning but very practical for every life. Her personal mantra is found in this quote: 'Life is more like painting a portrait than it is like obeying a set of rules.’ ~CS Lewis. Therefore enjoy the journey, come alive and find your own kind of beautiful.
