I am a registered Clinical Psychologist in Hatfield, next to the University of Pretoria. I am inspired by diversity and the strength of the human psyche. My aim is to help the individuals find a sense of self, among the disarray of their symptoms. The self so easily gets misrepresented by symptoms and the true person does not have a voice.
As a trained EMDR® therapist and registered Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner I trust in each patient’s capacity to heal. I use various therapeutic interventions to assist each patient to grow and master the process of self-regulation. Essential for this process of growth is increasing patients mindful awareness of them self within particular developmental stage or transitional phase. This equips patient for greater self-care and insight into the dynamics of their behaviour and relationships.
I work with adults and adolescence with a wide range of difficulties and psychiatric disorders
- Panic and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Depression and Bipolar Disorder
- Personality Disorders
- Eating Disorders.
I assist patients during times of adjustment in transitional life phases, Loss and Grief and relationship difficulties and loss. I also consult at Denmar Psychiatric Hospital and work with hand in hand with various Psychiatrists in Pretoria.
