I am a Clinical Psychologist with a private practice in Durban North. I work with children, adolescents and adults. I provide assessments, play therapy, individual therapy and couples therapy. I am contracted to medical aid.

About me

I completed my Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in Port Elizabeth. I have worked in various settings including private hospitals (Hunterscraig Private Psychiatric Hospital), government hospitals (Charlotte Maxeke Academic Hospital – JHB General Hospital), various clinics, and at a university (University of KwaZulu-Natal).

My special interests:

  • scholastic assessments
  • behavioural problems
  • attention difficulties
  • bullying
  • career assessments and guidance
  • under or over eating
  • self-harming behaviour
  • addiction
  • sleep difficulties
  • depression and anxiety
  • general emotional distress
  • bereavement/grief
  • divorce/separation
  • relationship/interpersonal difficulties
  • LGBTI issues
  • low self-esteem
  • personal growth and development

There is a wide range of different ways of doing therapy. I believe that the type of therapy used is largely dependent on the personalities of both the person seeking therapy, and the therapist. Because of this, I am open to a wide range of therapeutic approaches however I generally tend to understand my patients from a psychodynamic orientation.

Psychodynamic therapy involves working from the roots of entrenched patterns of ways of being. Psychodynamic therapy usually requires a longer duration of therapy sessions, but tends to result in more long lasting effects.
