Dr Vanessa Marais

Clinical Psychologist

I have been in private practice for 30 years, specialising in cancer and cancer treatment related psychological problems which include depression, anxiety, emotional difficulty and sexual dysfunctions.   I specialize in Breast cancer and Leukaemia but therapeutically I work with all types of cancer, regardless of the stage of the cancer or treatment modality.  

I do individual psychotherapy, but also work with the family or partner of the cancer patient.  I work palliative and do bereavement therapy. I predominantly do cognitive therapy and cognitive – behavioural therapy (short- or long-term) which includes emotional expression and the developing of coping- and adaptation skills for personal growth.
