Hello there! My name is Philip. As an ELDER among my colleagues, with over 40 years experience, I’m likely to be familiar with your kind of predicament. I specialize in treatment for ongoing PERSONAL trauma, and for dedicated COUPLES in need of resolving CONFLICT in their relationship. I also see PARENTS with misbehaving children or teens, and FAMILY MEMBERS at odds with each other.

A unique way of talking breaks the logjam. And with radically enhanced communication come unprecedented breakthroughs in mutual cooperation. This is reinforced by BEHAVIOUR MODIFICATION methodology with targeted consequences for desirable lines of action. PRACTICAL problem-solving is key.

I get involved, I share my thinking, and I make myself available when something important comes up. Finding a trusted ALLY makes one feel SAFE.

I am best suited to sincere, unassuming people. Therapy maximizes support when needed, but avoids unwanted dependency. YOU choose the pattern of contact and connectedness that works for you. You’re already on your way. And there’s no time to be wasted. Come to the comfort of my home in Camps Bay and be heard at the deepest level.

Fees based on medical aid norms with affordable sliding scale if needed.
Early evening sessions available.
