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 am a Counselling Psychologist working in private practice in Bryanston Johannesburg. I specialise in working with children, adolescents and adults in individual psychotherapy. I also offer couples and family therapy. My approach is integrative and collaborative, working with my clients as a team, and tailoring the therapy process through incorporating elements and skills from various psychological paradigms to best suit each client’s specific and unique needs and concerns. Therapy may entail developing understandings into the client’s emotional struggles and relationship difficulties as well as enhancing coping strategies you already possess to facilitate sustained change beyond therapy.
I have a particular interest in working with children who present with emotional, developmental, learning and adjustment difficulties, and offer play therapy to address these challenges. I aim to help children develop coping strategies, as well as build their confidence and inner resources. I also have extensive experience in Student Counselling and enjoy working with students and young adults who often face significant changes at this stage in their lives whilst transitioning into adulthood.
In addition to therapy, I offer a variety of comprehensive assessment services such as Psychoeducational Assessments - this includes emotional assessments, IQ and scholastic assessments, and school readiness. I also offer career assessments and guidance.
