I am an independent, board certified clinical psychologist registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) and the Board of Health Care Funders (BHF). I work therapeutically with adults and adolescents, individuals as well as couples offering long and short term therapy.

Having worked in a number of public hospitals and community clinics I have enjoyed working with clients from diverse backgrounds, with varying psychological needs. Those experiences have shaped my therapeutic approach, I focus on providing a warm, non-judgmental and supportive space within which to help people understand themselves and their circumstances on a deeper level, and to deal more effectively with their life challenges.

I primarily practice from three therapeutic modalities, depending on the client's needs. These include psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioural therapy and clinical hypnotherapy.

I have helped clients who have experienced the following psychological difficulties:

  • All Psychiatric Conditions (depression, bipolar, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, phobias, panic attacks, schizophrenia, personality disorders, dissociative disorders),

  • Addictions (drugs, smoking, eating, gambling),

  • Self-harm and suicidal behaviours

  • Trauma and abuse,

  • LGBTIQ mental health issues,

  • Interpersonal difficulties (relational, marital, occupational),

  • Bereavement,

  • Coping with loss, chronic illness (HIV/Aids, cancer, migraines, chronic pain, chronic fatigue), and life transitions (death, separation, divorce),

  • Personal growth.
