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 have a passion for the development and understanding of the self – physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. As a psychologist, my aim is to provide a supportive environment in which my clients are able to discuss and explore challenging life issues whilst pursuing various strategies to bring about resolution and meaning. The therapeutic space is a sacred space which I hold as the privilege of being witness to people’s life stories and emotions.
Psychotherapy or psychological counselling provides a safe environment to explore how the individual / couple / family / group engages with a variety of life circumstances and discover new perspectives. Diverse strategies and techniques may be utilised within the sessions with the specific purpose of facilitating the client/s’ growth, healing and enhancing general well-being. Psychological assessments are useful as an additional process integrated with therapy (e.g. marriage counselling), or as a stand-alone method (e.g. career assessment) offering in-depth knowledge and awareness.
My therapeutic interests include working with teenage and adult issues; relationship counselling or couple’s therapy; self-esteem; therapist development and supervision; assessments; spiritual development; trauma; bereavement; stress management; skill development; anxiety and depression related issues.
