I am a counselling psychologist registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa.  I provide psychotherapy and performance lifestyle coaching in the City Centre, Cape Town.

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy or counselling can be an effective method for addressing psychological or emotional distress. Choosing to enter a process of therapy can be difficult or anxiety-provoking and I have a deep respect, empathy and compassion for individuals who take this step.

I offer both brief and long-term psychotherapy for:

  • Individual adults | young adults / students | adolescents | seniors
  • Couples
  • Families

As a counselling psychologist I am interested in assisting people to deal with day to day life challenges. This may involve adjusting to developmental processes (e.g. life stage transitions) or circumstantial events (e.g. relationship breakdown). During this process, people have the opportunity to discover many aspects of themselves, such as thoughts, feelings and coping strategies. Usually, it facilitates self-awareness and the development of self-regulation, which helps people to negotiate these challenges with adaptive coping skills.

Specific life challenges that I have an interest in include:

  • Low mood | Depression
  • Anxiety | Stress
  • Relationship dynamics
  • Life stage changes
  • Self-identity
  • Bereavement | Grief
  • Addictions
  • Volatile mood regulation

I draw on various theoretical frameworks in an attempt to provide an efficient, effective, evidence-based psychotherapy service.

Practice hours: Weekdays from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm

Performance Lifestyle Coaching

Performance lifestyle coaching can be described as an activity to facilitate professional and personal development for individual growth and enhanced performance. Typical interventions include individual consultation or psychological skills training programs with teams. The goals for interventions can vary from establishing a unified team philosophy or team cohesion, improving communication quality and flow or building self-regulation skills for peak performance.

Performance lifestyle coaching is particularly relevant to professionals (e.g. sport) for:

  • Professional or personal growth
  • Optimal functioning
  • Goal achievement
  • Stress management
  • Professional identity
  • Holistic well-being

Rates: Competitive rates can be negotiated based on the type of intervention program. Please feel free to contact me for further information.
