I am a Clinical Psychologist based in Farrar Park, Boksburg. I offer psychotherapy to adults, adolescents and children (from infancy onwards).

My approach to therapy is integrative; where I draw on psychodynamic theories, mindfulness and other tools to suit your unique needs. Psychotherapy aims to provide a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space in which to explore your emotional experiences, your relationships and your goals. The process of therapy can assist in: gaining insight and increasing self-awareness, offering support through life changes and difficulties, managing distressing experiences or symptoms impacting on your relationships, work or school life, and finding ways of coping better and leading a more balanced life. Appointments are available outside of working hours and on Saturday mornings.

I have experience and interest in working in the following areas:

  • Depression and other mood disorders
  • Anxiety
  • Trauma and PTSD
  • Parent-infant psychotherapy and Newborn Behavioural Observation (NBO) interventions
  • Post-natal depression
  • Play therapy for children
  • Parenting
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Coping with major life stressors and changes
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Identity issues
  • Managing chronic illness
  • Personality difficulties
  • Feelings of loneliness, emptiness and numbness
  • Mindfulness
