About Us

ABOUT US

The iMe Movement is a collective of educators, digital experts, counsellors and psychologists actively looking to shed light on behavioural addiction in adolescents - especially in relation to digital exposure.

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO

We founded the “iMe Movement” (an initiative of Because I Said So Life Coaching NPC) with a mission to raise awareness, educate parents and children on various forms of behavioural addictions young people are facing today such as pornography, gaming, social media, eating disorders etc.

Digital Addiction in all its forms does not discriminate and we have experienced the harmful effects of it in our own lives. The iMe Movement wants to see the next generation grow up in a society where people are seen as people and not objects, where REAL LOVE and REAL CONNECTION are possible.  We believe that with enough awareness, education and support we can indeed live connected, yet protected and ultimately live effectively.

In our 10 years working with young people and many years in Advertising and communication we have seen the impact of the digital world on the youth of today and we are answering the call to educate, empower and prepare young people to live effectively in a hyper-connected world.

Corlia Erwee
Registered Psychological Counsellor(BPsych, ICP) - HPCSA PRC0029807
Corlia’s life story is a testimony of restoration and healing.  Corlia works with the iMe Movement team to walk alongside children, parents and teens to help them realise that their mountains are not that big.  She also believes that we are made up of our past and our present, we are body soul and spirit and we find ourselves in living breathing systems – families, marriages, friendship circles and workplaces. All of these influence our thinking and our believing. This is where a second pair of eyes – that of the counselor – can be so helpful. Counseling is not fixing. Counseling is helping people dig deep into their own set of resources to find their own solutions.
