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, currently in private practice at the Core Sport & Wellness Medical Centre in Durban North, Durban. I am a dedicated professional committed to providing a variety of quality mental health care services, in English, to clients 4 years of age and older. I have a special interest in Child and Adolescent psychopathology, however I do see adults too. In a safe and contained environment, my client, in collaboration with me, can explore their inner conflicts, relationships, past traumas & present challenges. I do not apply a specific therapeutic stance when seeing clients; instead I prefer to tailor my therapeutic interventions according to the unique characteristics of each of my clients & their presenting issues. My goal is to enhance my clients’ understanding of themselves, their relationships & their external surroundings, so that they may grow & attain a sense of personal well-being, & achieve more satisfying relationships with others. Some of the concerns I see patients for include, but are not limited to, the following:
Depression, Bipolar Mood Disorder, Separation anxiety, PTSD, Attempted suicide/Suicidal thoughts, Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Disruptive behaviour disorders, Eating disorders, Enuresis/Bedwetting, Emotional difficulties, Intellectual disability (ID), Autism, Schizophrenia, Complicated Grief, Personality disorders, abuse, Bodily complaints (without a medical cause), Problems associated with major life changes, including transitions and illness.
Consultation Fees: Standard medical aid rates apply and reduced rates are offered to clients who wish to settle payment via cash, debit card, or credit card.
I know that sometimes taking the first step, and asking for help, can be an extremely difficult thing to do, but I am here to accompany you on your unique journey towards better mental wellness.
