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.
My role is to help understand, diagnose and explore psychological distress; to ultimately support my client, while we develop together, an awareness of both internal and external (environmental) conflicts, with the aim to alleviate distress and faciliate personal development.
Currently I am a PHD candidate with the University of Stellenbosch. The PhD research project involves evaluating a mindfulness intervention and proposing evidenced-based treatment for people with dual diagnoses of substance use disorder and mental illness.
