I am a clinical psychologist based in Gardens, Cape Town. I work with adults, adolescents and couples, in both short and long-term therapy. I have a special interest in working with people who are faced with major life changes or decisions, and who generally feel “stuck” or overwhelmed. Often these feelings are related to grief or loss, the experience of trauma, or the onset of an illness. At times, there is no immediate, obvious point of origin for these uncomfortable feelings, but we find them debilitating in certain, or all areas of our daily lives. I work from an integrative psychodynamic framework, and I believe that we are able to identify unconscious patterns of behaviour and thinking, through increased self-awareness, within a therapeutic relationship. Ultimately this increased insight can lead to changes in our thinking and behaviour, and a fuller ownership of our lives and emotions.
