I am a Clinical Psychologist working in Parktown North, Johannesburg. I offer both short and longer-term insight-orientated therapy to adults, couples, young adults and adolescents.
Choosing to contact a psychotherapist can be daunting, and I understand the importance of finding a therapist that feels like a good ‘fit’ for you, so our first session would focus on determining whether you feel this is the right space for you and how we would work together should you choose to continue. I work primarily psychodynamically (which is an insight-oriented approach) in my practice, as I believe in the power of understanding to offer resolution, healing and ultimately choice in how our lives move forward. However, I adapt to the needs of the client and find Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and more directive approaches useful when necessary.
I have particular interest in, and experience working with clients facing:
- Bipolar Mood Disorder
- Relationship difficulties/marriage
- Issues of sex/sexuality
- Life changes/stressors
- Pregnancy and post-natal issues
- Parenting issues
- Feelings of poor self-worth or emptiness
- Exploring personal growth and potential
