About Me

I take my work very seriously and set the highest standard for myself. I aim to assist clients in achieving their goal for therapy in the shortest amount of time. This is my promise to my clients – I give 100% during every session. In return, I also need the client’s willingness, openness and commitment to work with me. If I do not have the skills or expertise needed to effectively assist a client, I will refer him/her to a professional that does.

I welcome clients to be open and honest with me – if you are not happy with something I did or said, I will appreciate your honest feedback. I also promise that, within realistic boundaries and always with empathy and compassion, I will challenge you where needed. This is to help us achieve our goal and never to be mean or critical. I will recommend certain therapeutic processes if it is in line with the goal of therapy, however I will not force a client into something they are not comfortable with. I work with people, therefor I do not distinguish between race, gender, age, sexual orientation or religious views – we are all sufferers and conquerors of the human-condition.    READ MORE

Couples Therapy

Couples therapy can assist any couple to overcome difficulties that have caused strain in their relationship.

When a couple’s problem solving skills and communication skills are not adequate to successfully manage the challenges they are faced with, it often leads to emotional distance between them. This emotional distance leads to a feeling of disconnect – emotionally and physically. External factors may also lead to stress within the relationship that the couple struggle to manage effectively. In couples therapy the goal is to break the negative cycle that has formed in the relationship and to empower the couple with skills that will enable them to manage future challenges effectively.

HBDI Assessment

The Hermann Brain Dominance Instrument Assessment is the world’s leading thinking style assessment tool.

Over 2 million assessments have been completed internationally and recorded in the HBDI database. It is an online assessment that takes roughly 30 minutes to complete. The HBDI evaluates an individual’s thinking preferences and creates their personal thinking preference profile.

HypnoTherapy

The hypnotherapy process that I do is called Medical Hypno-Analysis (MHA).

It is a structured and short-term process aimed to identify the root cause of a problem and to address it effectively. Clients are often consciously aware that logically their feelings and/or behaviour are unfounded, yet despite numerous efforts they still struggle to change it. This is because the feelings and behaviour is a response to a belief that is deeply rooted in the subconscious mind, and therefore very difficult to change consciously. During hypnotherapy we work with the subconscious mind, enabling us to change those deeply rooted beliefs.

Sports Psychology

Corporate Workshops

Ilé is a director at Coreformation – a business aimed at helping companies reach their strategic goals by means of assessments and interventions.

A company is essentially a system where all the parts need to function effectively and interact effectively to reach the overall goal. At Coreformation we are not business specialists, we are people specialists, but we have yet to come across a business that does not rely on people to be successful.

Premarital Counselling & Workshops

Prevention is better than cure. Getting married; moving in together; having a baby – all these life events are often portrayed in society as wonderful and romantic events that naturally occur because the couple love each other.

The reality, however, is that these life events often create stress and challenges for the couple to negotiate. Love alone does not necessitate resilience, effective communication, problem solving and effective understanding of each other’s needs within the relationship. It is not uncommon for these exciting life events to push couples apart. Premarital counselling and workshops can help couples to prepare for these events and the challenges they may face because of them.

Professional Supervision

It is important for any individual working in the helping professions to take care of themselves.

If we run on an empty tank, we have nothing left to give. It is also important to note that as a therapist there is always more to learn about others but also about ourselves as we grow and enter different phases of life. I can provide supervision to student counsellors/psychologists as well as qualified professionals. This will combine personal therapy and growth with discussions of subject matter and case studies, depending on the need of the client.

Ilé is fantastic!

She gave me tools to make necessary changes which will also help me to manage future situations in my life. She is kind and non-judgmental. She is also great with couples therapy. I can highly recommend her.

(12 sessions including individual therapy, hypnotherapy and couples therapy)

“I reluctantly decided one day to seek out professional help. I had just undergone a relationship ending: losing a partner and a stepchild. I felt like my soul had numbed, my drive had fizzled away, and my thoughts were leading me to perform actions of addiction and relapse. I was, without any doubt, on the verge of ending everything. My whole investment in this relationship had gone to waste – or at least, that’s what I thought. I was always against “seeing someone” or “finding help” but this time it was highly recommended by friends and family. I then stumbled across Ilé Schutte.

She went and took this ball of emotional, negative and confused matter I called “me” and through not magic tricks, or need for medication or extreme interventions, transformed me back into the person I wanted to be. Positive. Motivated. Brave. Assertive. Passionate. I rediscovered myself, and with that, moved on with my demons in check and can function confidently – I’ve even been able to commit to a new relationship without that added “baggage” or fears of repeating the same mistakes again.

Ilé is subtle – she allows you the opportunity to discover your flaws without pointing them out. She will guide you to self-discovery and I would highly recommend her to anyone: from “going through a bad patch” to “it’s now or never”.

I needed to have a cataract removed but, when I went for the operation, the surgeon refused to operate because my blood pressure was too high. I was sent to my GP to treat my blood pressure but it was at normal levels. He gave me some blood pressure pills to take anyway and I rescheduled my operation but again it was cancelled because of high blood pressure. Another trip to the GP confirmed that my blood pressure was normal. I decided that my problem must have a psychological cause instead of a physical one, so I went to see Ile.

The sessions with Ile were very relaxed and comfortable experiences. After a few, some of which didn’t seem to be related to my problem (but were), we got to the source of my problem. Everything came together with the last session. Looking back at the path that we followed I wouldn’t have been able to get to the solution by myself or even by speaking to friends and family. So I am very pleased that I decided to get the professional help.

I have now had two operations to remove both my cataracts without any blood pressure problems. I can now see the world clearly!
As a bonus of the sessions, other aspects of my life have been improved. I have finally, after 60 years, overcome my crippling shyness and also feel able to share my feelings instead of bottling them up until they exploded.
