Feel better now by releasing and letting go of your anxiety, stress and other negative emotions that may be challenging or overwhelming you.

Situated in the leafy suburb of Linden, just west of Johannesburg central, lies the home of 5th Place.

At 5th Place we aim to change the narrative about mental health and emotional wellbeing. We empower people to improve their mental wellness by advocating for increased awareness and understanding, and provide specialised psychological services, either online or in person. We have a holistic, five fold approach to our interventions.

Feel better now

At our core we are perfect and what we need to do is clear away the debris of our difficult feelings collected and built up over the years. Instead of a mind cluttered with ruminations, unfulfilled fantasies and endless regrets we invite, with Shape of Emotion, a chance to quieten the mind, connect with our emotions, and feel better now.
