Welcome. I’m a registered Clinical Psychologist in private practice based in both Newlands and Tamboerskloof, Cape Town. A curiosity with how we each come to be the unique person we are informs both my psychotherapy practice and personal life.
I work with individuals, from adolescence through adulthood, as well as with groups.
Life is challenging. We may feel unable to cope at times. Feelings like sadness, anger, worry, and loneliness, or traumatic life events may overwhelm us. Perhaps we struggle to change problematic patterns of thought and behaviour or we might simply feel out of balance and seek greater insight and meaning into life. Psychotherapy can help.
Psychotherapy provides a unique opportunity to openly speak, think and experience feelings with someone trained to help make sense and provide relief. My approach is, at heart, focussed around the needs of the person and non-judgemental, where together we seek to better understand difficulties in relation to one’s life. My training in psychodynamic as well as cognitive-behavioural therapies allows flexibility in meeting the particular needs of the person.

My internship was completed at Valkenberg Psychiatric Hospital, Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital and Groote Schuur Hospital, as well as Dr Abdurahman Community Health Clinic. These provided broad-ranging experience in assessing, diagnosing and treating adults, children and adolescents.
My community service year with the Department of Health, KwaZulu-Natal, provided further experience with emergency first-responders and primary level mental health care.
