Mental health is a fundamental component of health. Stigma and lack of understanding about mental disorders are just to mention but few barriers to seeking help and promoting better mental health among the affected.

According to WHO, people who are severely affected by mental disorders die 10-20 years earlier than the general population. However, recently, most people have come out to access proper mental health care.

We spend time with Mr Maweu, a counselling psychologist as he takes us through the journey of his practise.

Every time I Successfully help a patient to get therapy and change for example stop an Addiction I find a lot of fulfilment in it. This motivates me to continue serving.

ESTHER: How have you been able to handle work-related stress and time management considering that you’re balancing between family and work?

MR MAWEU: Work life balance is critical for all of us. There’s a set number of clients that we are Professionally advised to see per day. So that guides me to avoid burnouts. I also seek clinical supervision regularly to work on my wellness. Self care is critical in our Profession.

ESTHER: What excites you about psychology in general?

MR MAWEU: It’s exciting to me and patient to get well without use of meds. I have handled several patients with IAD (Illness Anxiety Disorder) who keep visiting Hospitals, alot of money is spent in MRIs, Scans etc and no organic cause is found. When they are referred to me as a Psychotherapist I walk with them for 6 sessions and they are sorted.

ESTHER: What do you see as challenges in the Kenyan health sector?

MR MAWEU: Our main Challenge is lack of proper structures to meet the needs of the people. For example, the ratio of doctors to patients is not per the standards. Some Hospitals don’t have facilities and wards to deal with Mentaly sick patients. 

ESTHER: What is the future of psychology in Kenya?

MR MAWEU: There’s hope that the government will invest more and make Health accessible and affordable to all.

ESTHER: What is the future of medicine and psychology in East Africa? 
MR MAWEU: In East Africa, Kenya is leading in terms of quality of Health. I believe the rest are doing more to make it possible to have most cases handled here without having to travel to outside countries for treatment.
