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.
It can often be difficult to express oneself in words. I have an innate passion for creating a safe space to enable people to express themselves creatively. In this way - Art becomes the bridge between one's internal and external world. However - No art experience however is needed to benefit from this modality! Through creativity people can find their deeper voice of truth, power, clarity and purpose.
I completed my Masters in Art Psychotherapy at the University of Hertfordshire in London in 2000. Since then I have run a private practice working with children, adults, families and professionals in both individual and group capacities for the past 19 years.
I have experience with a wide variety of conditions including emotional and behavioural problems, ADD/ADHD, anxiety & depression, learning difficulties, autism, developmental delay, refugees, trauma victims, Educators, Department of Education, HIV/Aids & orphans, Correctional Services and Psychiatry.
I facilitate various courses and workshops for both personal and professional development. See www.arttherapy.co.za for more info.
My training and thinking is psychodynamic however I have an eclectic tool kit when required including coaching, Journey therapy, archetype exploration, mindfulness, numerology etc.
