I’m a clinical psychologist in private practice at the Oxford Healthcare Centre in Saxonwold. I trained at Wits and in England at University College London. I offer psychotherapy to adults and couples. My approach is integrative in that it is informed by the specific needs of the individual.  I incorporate different psychological approaches and tailor treatment accordingly. I emphasize mindfulness based or informed interventions which help to cultivate greater awareness of the inner workings of the mind.

I have considerable experience working with couples. Other areas of interest and specialisation include:

  • Depression and other mood disorders
  • Anxiety
  • Trauma and PTSD
  • Adjusting to difficult life events
  • Stress management
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Self-esteem and identity issues
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Anger and self-harming behaviour
  • Mindfulness coaching

I charge medical aid rates.
