I am a Clinical Psychologist registered with the Health Professions Counsel of South Africa (HPCSA) and the Board of Healthcare Funders (BHF). After completing my Bachelors and Honours degrees in psychology I qualified as a Registered Trauma Counsellor and worked at the Open Door Crisis Care Centre and in private practice. I then obtained my Master's degree in Social Science (Clinical Psychology) from the University of KwaZulu Natal in Pietermartizburg.
