Counselling psychologists treat people dealing with normal life challenges, such as the loss of a job or divorce. They hold Master’s Degrees in Counselling Psychology and are registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa.
Psychotherapy or counselling can be an effective method for addressing psychological or emotional distress. Choosing to enter a process of therapy can be difficult or anxiety-provoking and I have a deep respect, empathy and compassion for individuals who take this step.
I offer both brief and long-term psychotherapy for:
• Individual adults | young adults / students | adolescents | seniors • Couples • Families
As a counselling psychologist I am interested in assisting people to deal with day to day life challenges. This may involve adjusting to developmental processes (e.g. life stage transitions) or circumstantial events (e.g. relationship breakdown). During this process, people have the opportunity to discover many aspects of themselves, such as thoughts, feelings and coping strategies. Usually, it facilitates self-awareness and the development of self-regulation, which helps people to negotiate these challenges with adaptive coping skills.
Specific life challenges that I have an interest in include:
• Low mood | Depression • Anxiety | Stress • Relationship dynamics • Life stage changes • Self-identity • Bereavement | Grief • Addictions • Volatile mood regulation
I draw on various theoretical frameworks in an attempt to provide an efficient, effective, evidence-based psychotherapy service.
