Clinical psychologists treat people with relatively serious kinds of psychological distress, like depression or anxiety disorders. They hold Master’s Degrees in Clinical Psychology and are registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa.
I am a Clinical Psychologist based in Fourways. I completed my Masters in Clinical Psychology after a 7 year training programme at the University of the Witwatersrand (Johannesburg). My special interests are in children, adolescents, Mindfulness/meditation and Art therapy. I have completed several additional courses to supplement my degree in the latter areas. I completed my Art therapy training at Flourish (Chicago based art therapy center), where I gained theoretical and practical knowledge. I also have a Community Arts Counsellor qualification from Lefika Arts Therapy Centre (Johannesburg). I have completed a course on Parent-Infant Psychotherapy (Ububele, Johannesburg) and Child Psychotherapy (Institute for Child Psychotherapy, Johannesburg). In addition, I regularly dedicate my time to participate in regular Child Development courses through the Institute for Child Psychotherapy, Johannesburg Parent and Child Counselling Centre, and Ububele; keeping up to date with new research and trends. My role is to help individuals understand and explore their inner selves, assist with diagnosis of mental disorders and relieve psychological distress. I desire to help individuals become more adaptive in their lives, form healthy relationships with those around them and to ultimately achieve a sense of self, a sense of identity and of peace.
