I am a registered Counseling Psychologist. My focus is on creating a safe and inviting environment where my clients can resolve past problems, deal more successfully with current life challenges and strive towards a more fulfilled and happier future. It is important for me to assist my clients to reach their full potential in their personal and professional lives.
I offer the following services:
-Individual therapy to adolescents and adults
I can help clients deal with problems related to:
Depression and anxiety
Trauma - e.g. car accidents / hijacking / rape / childhood abuse / robberies
Grief and bereavement
Stress-related to work or personal/health problems
Adjustment related problems - e.g adjusting to new work / circumstances
Weight related problems
Self esteem and self-image
Life coaching and mentoring
Hypnosis for a wide variety of issues
-Career counseling and subject choice assessments
I offer career counseling for Grade 11 and 12 learners as well as adults. I also offer subject choice assessments for Grade 9 learners.
It is never too early or too late to start planning your career. I help clients to explore their own abilities, interests, personality in order to identify a career that is fulfilling and satisfying.
HypnoBirthing is a rewarding, relaxing, stress-free method of birthing that is based on the belief that all babies should come into the world in an atmosphere of gentility, calm and joy. The program consists of deep relaxation, self-hypnosis, special breathing techniques, visualizations, affirmations and education. It allows for the mom-to-be to make use of her natural birthing techniques and to give birth in a safe and comfortable manner.
I have extensive training in a number of therapeutic approaches and techniques, including Hypnosis, Solution-focused therapy and Eye Movement Integration. I tailor-make my therapeutic approach to each client in order to address my clients’ unique needs and circumstances. Therapy and counseling is never a “one size fits all” approach. I see my clients as the experts of their lives and myself as the expert in my techniques. I believe that when I and my clients bring our expertise together, it will make therapy and counseling a rewarding and fruitful experience.
