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.
One of my favourite quotes is by Hycner and Jacobs … "The human heart yearns for contact … each of us ... yearns to be … recognised in our uniqueness, our fullness and our vulnerability."
I specialise in supportive counselling for trauma, bereavement, anxiety, crisis management, couples, children, low self-esteem, loss of enjoyment or meaning in life, and more.
I work with children, adolescents and adults, and have rooms in Parkwood and Sandton. I also offer online and telephonic counselling.
I have worked in counselling since 2005 and have been in private practice since 2010.
My training is varied and has included Person-centred, Psychodynamic, Jungian, Narrative and Gestalt approaches. I have experience in both art and play therapy and I am interested in creative approaches to counselling.
I have extensive experience in the NGO sector and have worked at The Art Therapy Centre, Lifeline, and Abraham Kriel Maria Kloppers Children’s Home. I have also been affiliated to ICAS and conducted corporate trauma debriefings with them for many years. I continue to do this work on my own.
