Garret Barnwell is a clinical psychologist practicing from Parktown North, Johannesburg, providing assessment, short-term and long-term psychotherapy to adolescents and adults. My practice hours are Mondays – Fridays 08h30 to 19h00.
People come to see a psychologist for many reasons. I see adolescents and adults who experience challenges coping with illness, psychological distress or seek personal growth and professional development. I am an integrative psychotherapist and utilise a person’s personal strengths to overcome challenges. This therapeutic style affirms the inherent value of each individual and I draw from cognitive-behavioural, relational, narrative, and psychodynamic approaches to bring a holistic perspective to the therapeutic process.
My areas of interest include:
Living and coping with chronic illness (such as, diabetes, hypertension, cancer, HIV, etc.);
Mental distress, related to work stress, grief, existential worries, trauma, depression, anxiety and other personal experiences and challenges;
Personal development whether in your relationships or career.
I have a warm approach, and therapy offers a space that is non-judgmental and confidential.
