Clinical psychologists treat people with relatively serious kinds of psychological distress, like depression or anxiety disorders. They hold Master’s Degrees in Clinical Psychology and are registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa.
I am a clinical psychologist in full-time private practice and work with older adolescents, adults and couples. My practice is based in Parkhurst, Johannesburg.
I work primarily from a 'psychodynamic perspective', meaning that I am inclined to emphasize the influence of one’s childhood – as well as their on-going relational experiences – as being central to how a person functions in the present day. The therapy is geared towards identifying and then ultimately changing how these formative experiences have affected us, thus striving for a greater sense of personal freedom and autonomy in the present day.
I am trained to work with a range of issues, including anxiety, depression, bipolar, psychosis, personality issues, substance abuse, as well as issues surrounding one's sexuality, self-esteem and identity.
