Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars -Kahlil Gibran
I completed my Master’s degree in Clinical psychology through UNISA and obtained the degree Cum Laude. I have experience in the psychiatric setting (Weskoppies Hospital) where I worked with disorders of addiction, mood disorders (for example bipolar disorder and depression), anxiety disorders, personality disorders, neurocognitive disorders and various psychotic disorders. Following Weskoppies Hospital, I went on to work for the Department of Correctional Services, where I worked with both male and female offender populations. I also have experience in outpatient settings working predominately with substance addiction and mood disorders.
I have been trained and work predominantly within the systemic framework. The systemic approach highlights the importance of each client’s individuality and the value that a client holds in contributing to the therapeutic process. It allows me to incorporate aspects of various other treatment methodologies in order to ensure that my clients receive a therapeutic experience that is uniquely tailored to their needs.
My private practice is based at the N.H.C Medical & Dental Centre in Centurion.
