Cindy Strydom

Clinical Psychologist

I believe that the therapeutic relationship is vitally important in the therapeutic process, and therefore I place great value on creating an environment in which my clients feel understood and at ease. I have a preference for working from a Cognitive Behavioral Therapeutic (CBT) paradigm but I also adopt a wide array of therapeutic techniques to optimally benefit each client. I have completed training accredited by The Albert Ellis Institute, based in New York City, in Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), as well as training from international accredited The Beck Institute in CBT. I also provide training and supervision to other psychologists. CBT as a therapeutic technique is highly effective in treating a wide range of difficulties.

I have 9 years of therapeutic experience and am passionate about assisting each client to achieve their optimal functioning. Therapy is available in both English and Afrikaans, and Skype sessions can be arranged.

  • Grief / Bereavement- Anxiety- Depression ers Problems that stemmed in childhood
