I am a registered Psychological Counsellor based in Claremont, Cape Town. I work with children, teens and adults and I feel passionately about my role as a source of support within our ever-changing society.
I am not 'traditional' in my approach, and as a creative soul, you'll often find me either sitting across from you; on the floor with you; on a kiddies chair or even a yoga mat. It all just depends on each individual person I work with and what I feel will resonate with you. I work from a holistic standpoint and will always encourage you to be taking care of yourself outside of therapy space, in other areas of your life.
I value honesty and transparency and I regard this highly within the therapeutic relationship. My therapy space is very close to my heart as I've made it an open, calm and safe space. It's a space for creativity, a space for digging deep and a space for listening in. Sometimes we'll get messy, sometimes we'll play, sometimes we'll move but mostly you'll get to share and I will listen intently and hold a space for you. I will walk beside you on your journey and gently steer you towards the right path. Sometimes you'll cry and sometimes you'll laugh, you may even want to scream or shout. This space is for you and this space is for me, we will share it and make it what we need it to be.
I am so grateful to practice what I do and I love the process of facilitating you getting to know and value your true authentic self.. I love having this space to engage with you and tearn about what is dear to you and your heart.
I base my practice on the philosophies of Narrative Therapy, Play Therapy, CBT and Mindfulness*. In this way, I keep my therapy space open to creativity and playfulness while fostering deep emotional care and support for my clients.
