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.
I completed my Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology at Rhodes University, during which time I worked mostly with children and adolescents. I gained extensive experience in play therapy as well as psycho-educational assessments. During my internship at the Rhodes University Counselling Centre, I primarily provided psychotherapy to students, but also conducted career and other academic-related assessments. Before entering private practice, I worked at a residential addiction treatment centre for adults, where I gained extensive experience in individual therapy, group therapy, family/couples therapy, and psychological assessment and diagnosis.
I enjoy working with all ages and provide psychotherapy in English and Afrikaans.
My areas of interest include, but are not limited to: • Personal growth • Problems adjusting to life changes (e.g. divorce, new career, retirement) • Relationship problems • Self-esteem difficulties • Stress and Anxiety • Depression • Processing trauma and loss • Substance abuse • Bipolar disorder • Personality disorders
