I currently live and work (online and offline) mostly in Switzerland (March to Nov).
I work mostly online with South African clients. I do training workshops Internationally, for EMI (online and offline) and training in Resource Therapy online. I organize SE training in South Africa.
I also do therapy and supervision for therapists internationally.
As a clinical psychologist I use my training and experience to guide clients and to help them move towards health, happiness and wellbeing. Clients consult me because of any form of distress, such as depression, anxiety, grief, loss, trauma, problems with relationships, self-image, addictions, eating disorders etc.
I specialize in the treatment of any form of trauma. Human beings can transform and resolve any form of distress or uncertainty. No issue or problem is too big or too small to bring to therapy.
I obtained my first master’s degree in psychology at Stellenbosch University in 1980.
I married, studied and lived in Germany with a DAAD grant. While raising my children, I lectured at the University of the Western Cape from 1985 to 1989.
We moved to KwaZulu-Natal as a family in 1990. I completed my second Masters degree in Clinical Psychology and completed an internship at Town Hill Hospital and at Fort Napier hospital in Pietermaritzburg in 1993. I also co-developed and worked in a community psychology project in Zululand.
From 1994 to 2011, I worked in my practice in KZN, which I developed into a multi-disciplinary practice. During this time I regularly had Masters students doing their internships with me and I also acted as a therapist and supervisor for therapists.
In December 2011, I moved to Stellenbosch where I lived and worked until I moved to Switzerland in March 2020.
I do training workshops for Psychologists and Psychotherapists in Eye Movement Integration Internationally and I teach Resource Therapy (Online).
Psychologists and therapists also consult me for supervision and/or their own therapy.
I follow an integrated, holistic and multi-dimensional approach. My training and experience, together with specific psychotherapeutic approaches and modalities, are used in an integrated way to create a client-centered and unique therapeutic journey, together with each individual client.
Human beings are multi-dimensional and interconnected beings. Whatever affects one system within the human entity will have an effect on every other system, whether physical, emotional, psychological, neurological or spiritual.
Depending on the client’s needs and experiences, any system may be used as the entry point to start the therapeutic healing journey.
Therapy may start with the body-based therapies, such as SE or TRE, or brain-based therapies such as CBT or DBT or BWRT or with dissociated states (Hypnotherapy or Ego-state therapy or Resource Therapy) or positive psychology and energy healing modalities such as EFT or Mindfulness, or more neurological, multi-modal modalities such as EMDR or EMI. Wherever the journey starts in therapy, the goal is for the individual to function optimally at all levels, as a healthier, more integrated and happier being.
