"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen"- Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Welcome to my practice

 

I am a Clinical Psychologist operating within the Garden Route area in the Western Cape. My philosophy of working therapeutically is guided by the client's needs or presenting problem. This is determined by doing an initial, comprehensive psychological assessment. Types of therapy include (but are not limited to): Psychodynamic Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Brain Working Recursive Therapy (BWRT), Play Therapy, etc.

I have experience working in diverse/multicultural settings with people from varying backgrounds and socio-economic statuses and I am therefore sensitive to the contextual needs of my clients. My scope of practice includes diagnosing and treating acute and severe psychopathology (e.g. depression, anxiety, PTSD, etc.). I work with individuals, couples, and families ranging from early childhood to late adulthood.

 

Psychological Services

I provide psychotherapy for individuals, groups, couples, and families. This includes therapeutic services for children, teenagers, and adults. Sessions can be conducted in both English and Afrikaans, according to the client's preference. Online therapeutic services are also available.
