I am a Clinical Psychologist, currently in private practice at the Beacon Rock Medical Centre in Umhlanga Rocks, Durban. I am a dedicated professional committed to providing a variety of quality mental health care services, in English, to clients 4 years of age and older. I have a special interest in child, adolescent and geriatric psychopathology. In a safe and contained environment, my client, in collaboration with me, can explore their inner conflicts, relationships, past traumas & present challenges. I do not apply a specific therapeutic stance when seeing clients; instead I prefer to tailor my therapeutic interventions according to the unique characteristics of each of my clients & their presenting issues. My goal is to enhance my clients’ understanding of themselves, their relationships & their external surroundings, so that they may grow & attain a sense of personal well-being, & achieve more satisfying relationships with others.
Some of the concerns I see patients for, include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Depression, Bipolar Mood Disorder (BMD),
- Dementia and ageing,
- Separation anxiety,
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD),
- Attempted suicide/Suicidal thoughts,
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD),
- Disruptive behaviour disorders,
- Eating disorders,
- Emotional difficulties,
- Intellectual Disability (ID),
- Complicated grief,
- Personality disorders,
- Bodily complaints (without a medical cause),
- Problems associated with major life changes, including transitions and chronic illness.
Consultation Fees: Standard medical aid rates apply and reduced rates are offered to clients who wish to settle payment via cash, debit card, or credit card at the time of an appointment.
I know that sometimes taking the first step, and asking for help, can be an extremely difficult thing to do, but I am here to accompany you on your unique journey towards better mental wellness.
Please feel free to contact me or visit my website for further details about what services I offer.
