My approach is eclectic and I make use of an array of approaches to therapy depending on what would be most beneficial for the client’s therapy journey and healing process.
I began my career in psychology in 1997 at the University of Cape Town, where I completed my Honor’s Degree in Psychology. I then went on to complete my Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology at Rhodes University in 2005. My Master’s Thesis was a phenomenological exploration of psychotherapy with clients who were diagnosed with Narcissistic or Borderline Personality Disorder and experienced sexual abuse in their childhood.
Prior to opening my independent practice, I worked at the Health Department of the Western Cape. I gained valuable experience there and began working at George Hospital, seeing patients with various psychological and behavioural disorders. Eventually, I started working at a private practice which specialized in Psychotherapy.
I opened my own private practice in 2009 in Constantia, Cape Town, and have a keen interest in psychodynamic psychotherapy and play therapy. I attend regular workshops and advanced training in Adult Psychotherapy and Play Therapy, and continually keep up to date with current research and developments in these areas.
My approach is eclectic and I make use of a variety of therapy modalities depending on what would be most beneficial for the client’s therapy journey and healing process.
“I work from an eclectic framework and non-judgmental approach when helping clients deal with difficulties. I usually start with a thorough assessment which allows me to understand more fully what is happening for the client. I journey with my client as they uncover what has created emotional or psychological problems for them. This journey together may be brief or long-term, until sufficient healing and growth has occurred for the client.”
