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.
I am a psychiatrist in private practice based in Cape Town with an interest in general adult psychiatry.
I have an interest in mood and anxiety disorders, as well as trauma- and stress-related disorders. I also have a special interest in obsessive compulsive- and related disorders, and burnout and work-related stress. I believe in holistic, individually tailored and evidence-based client care, with an emphasis on wellness and the building of resilience.
My psychotherapeutic interests include mindfulness, behavioral activation and cognitive behavioral therapy. Should it be required, I may refer patients out to a network of top psychologists to deliver psychotherapy in accordance with my clients’ individual needs. I strongly believe in empathically collaborating with clients in every part of the decision-making and treatment process, ensuring a client-centered and therapeutic environment.
