The quality of our relationships has a significant impact on our happiness and physical health. If we feel disconnected and misunderstood or are struggling to cope emotionally with our lives, we can quickly feel despairing and alone. Some problems just seem to escalate or repeat themselves without being resolved. My great passion is bringing healing to people’s relationships with others and within themselves. I help my clients, who include children, teens, individuals, couples and families, to find greater emotional freedom, inner security and resilience, as well as helping them to build and maintain healthy relationships so that they can know themselves as peaceful and meaningfully connected with others.
I know that no single approach is the right one for every individual. I have been trained in a range of therapeutic frameworks including Systemic and Psychodynamic therapy. Because I am so passionate about creating healthy, conscious relationships, I have spent years in additional professional training in Couples work: Psychoanalytic Couples Psychotherapy, Emotionally Focussed Couples Therapy, Imago Couples Therapy, Encounter-Centred Couples Therapy as well as additional professional training in Parent and Family therapy.
I live in Cape Town with my husband and my children. My own personal experience in my marriage, as a parent and as a past teacher have also enriched my professional work.
