Counselling Psychologist in Sandton
Dan is a counselling psychologist registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) as well as the Board of Healthcare Funders (BHF). He obtained a Master of Arts in Community-Based Counselling degree from Wits and completed his internship at Ububele.
Psychodynamic psychotherapy allows a safe space for people to explore themselves without the need for the constraints that society often provides. Dan views therapy as a process in which we can express our thoughts, experiences and feelings. The therapy that Dan offers aims at developing an understanding of one’s self so as to create deep and enduring changes in one’s life. Therapy is driven at times by the client and at others by the therapist in an attempt to gain insight and awareness. However, we are complex beings and therapy differs, based on the needs of each person. Dan believes that the primary road to healing and growth occurs through the relationship that develops between a person and a therapist.
