Social workers work with individuals, as well as families and communities, to develop treatment plans for people with mental health problems. They may work either in private practice or in collaboration with other healthcare professions. They hold Bachelor’s of Arts Degrees and are registered with the South African Council for Service Professions.
Not knowing how to help our children when they are struggling is one of the hardest things for a parent to bear. Understanding our own experiences of being parented and the impact this has on our adult lives is often an equally challenging endeavour.
I am a Cape Town-based (southern suburbs) social worker, and child and family therapist. I work with individuals, parents or the parent-child dyad, offering counselling and tailor-made parent coaching to address the social, emotional, behavioural or relationship difficulties you, your child, or your family, may be grappling with.
Using evidence-based interventions, coupled with a mindful approach and an attachment focus, I partner with clients to create and implement strategies and processes that work for you and your family. From tricky toddler behaviour to awkward adolescent adjustment, or your own adult journey of sadness, “stuckness”, or conflict, I help clients through managing these difficulties with confidence, respect, and success.
