My clientele include children, adolescents, adults and organisations.

My areas of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Depression and anxiety

  • Couple and marriage therapy
  • Aptitude and scholastic assessment

  • Medico-Legal Reports and Assessments

I aim to create a trusting and safe environment in which the client can explore, discover and journey to a place where he/she is able to live a fuller life, be able to contribute more effectively to society and there are no limits to his/her potential.

I can assist in creating well-rounded employees by running workplace programmes that keep healthy staff healthy, assist them to make positive lifestyle choices and build company capacity. Programmes offered include stress management; communication skills; career development and career assessments.

People change careers more frequently, searching for the ideal job that both meet their economic and personal needs. Developing and maintaining a selection system that yields solid returns is critical to the success of every organisation. Targeted selection is a proven, practical, consistent and legally credible system that provides a firm foundation for accurate hiring decisions and affords me the tools and skills to gather and evaluate data effectively. Additional information can be gathered through the use of various assessments, which could include for example: Intelligence, Aptitude and potential tests; Personality Tests and Career Counselling Tests.

I am fluent in Afrikaans and English and conduct therapy, assessments and workshops in both languages.
