I am a Counselling Psychologist registered as an independent psychologist with the Health Professions Council of South Africa. I am passionate about assisting people on their journey to become the best version of themselves. Creating and holding space for my clients to face the challenges that keep them from reaching their full potential, is important to me. I believe it is in this space and the relationship created therein – between client and therapist – where the change happens. It is a privilege for me to witness, guide and help my clients in this.

My Work

I have been trained in a variety of theoretical frameworks and practical techniques, including:

  • Narrative Therapy
  • Eye Movement Integration
  • Ego State Therapy
  • Eriksonian Hypnosis
  • Somatic Experiencing
  • Impact Therapy
  • Sand Tray Therapy
  • Professional Business Coaching
  • Psychometric assessments measuring cognitive, emotional and personality functioning.

I consider myself as someone who brings a combination of tools and techniques to the relationship, allowing for the possibility of removing obstacles standing in the way of growth.

“Beneath every behaviour there is a feeling. And beneath each feeling is a need. And when we meet that need, rather than focus on the behaviour, we begin to deal with the cause, not the symptom.”
