I am a qualified Counselling Psychologist, registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) as well as with the Board of Health Care Funders (BHF). I obtained my MA Counselling Psychology degree at the Pearson institute, through their full-time two-year intensive practical training programme.
Having completed my internship year, which involved working with children, adolescents and adults, I began providing psychological services to Kids Haven, a children’s home in Benoni. In addition to consulting at Kids Haven several times per week, I run a private practice in Parktown North. I work with adults in both individual and couples therapy, as well as adolescents facing individual challenges.
My practice methodology is to consider things from an integrative perspective, utilising numerous frameworks as appropriate to meet the needs of patients on an individual level. This interactional framework offers understanding and awareness of patterns of communication that the individual has developed in context, while the psychodynamic perspective is beneficial when developing deeper insight into emotional functioning. I am familiar with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), and various other modalities, using them when necessary to alleviate anxiety and assist with distress. This flexible approaches allows me to aid the client in the most appropriate way and thus work with the client to meet their individual needs
