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.
