Psychiatrists are medical doctors who have specialised in the treatment of mental illness. They often use medication to treat their patients, but are also able to offer psychotherapy. They are registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa under the specialist register.
It has been more than two decades since I started working as a psychiatrist, and every day I am still humbled to walk the journey through great suffering to help patients reclaim their lives. There have been many humorous and joyful occasions. I am passionate about my career and I strive to translate this to a high quality of care for my patients.
I am also a mother to two wonderful young children. So I am well aware of the stressors busy parents face.
