Clinical Psychologist in Cape Town City Bowl and Tygervalley Clinic Belville
I work with a range of therapy clients. Some seeking personal growth, insight and improved quality of life and understanding of themselves. Others experiencing severe psychological and psychiatric distress and needing intensive, even inpatient, treatment.
I am an inter subjective psychodynamic therapist. This means that the therapy not only looks at your current stressors and modes of coping but how these ways of interacting with the world have come about based on your life experiences. It is this processing of emotion and insight into behaviour and the therapeutic relationship that brings about change and emotional healing over time.
I specialize in depression, bipolar, anxiety and interpersonal relationship dynamics (with family, friends, romantic partners etc.).
I also conduct neuropsychological assessments following head injury or brain related illness.
