Welcome, I offer a safe therapy space that is empathic, non-judgmental and confidential in nature. I seek to help my clients by building a therapeutic relationship that is supportive, open, and collaborative.

I work with children, adolescents, and adults, as well as the parent-child unit and families. My clinical orientation is informed by a Psychodynamic framework, however all therapeutic treatments are person-specific, and therefore devised to suit each client's current needs. I therefore also practice other modalities, including CBT, DBT, and Mindfulness-based therapy.

I work with a broad range of psychological conditions and issues, including (but not limited to) the following:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorders
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Relationship difficulties and interpersonal conflict
  • Adjustment to life events and stress
  • Substance Abuse
  • Loss and grief
  • Impulse control

and (specifically in children):

  • Social withdrawal
  • Separation anxiety, panic attacks
  • ADHD
  • Aggression, defiance
  • Bullying
  • Parent-child relationship issues, sibling rivalry
  • Trauma-related conditions
  • Poor self-esteem
  • Adjustment difficulties (due to life changes such as change of school, moving, parents' divorce, etc.)

Professional affiliations I am a registered member and practitioner of the following professional groups:

  • Babies in Mind (www.babiesinmind.co.za)
  • HPCSA (Health Professions Council of South Africa)
  • BHF (Board of Healthcare Funders of Southern Africa)

I look forward to hearing from you.
