Registered counsellors perform basic counselling for people who are looking to improve their personal functioning. They can also assess to see if a client need more in depth psychological treatment and refer them to the appropriate practitioner. Registered councillors hold honours degrees in psychology.
I have been working within the mental health industry for over five years and am passionate about the application of psychology within the South African context. I have practiced in various environments, such as rehabilitation centres, NGOs, hospitals and schools. I have also spent time working as part of a multi-disciplinary clinical team, in Europe. I currently run a full- time practice in Wynberg, but dedicate certain hours to community based development. I work with children, adolescents and adults who experience a broad range of emotional and psychological difficulties. I provide one-on-one counselling but also facilitate group therapy and skype sessions.
My primary influences stem from Psychodynamic and Narrative approaches to counselling; however, I offer treatment grounded in Cognitive Behavioural, Play and Gestalt Therapy. I prefer to cater the treatment I offer according to my clients’ individual needs, as opposed to prescribing a specific modality. I aim to offer a warm therapeutic environment in which clients can gain a deep insight into their lives, overcome distress and begin to flourish.
