I aim to create a non-judgemental space for my patients to explore the emotions, thoughts and behaviours that are not in line with the healthy, happy life they want for themselves and their loved-ones. I prefer to work from a Cognitive-Behavioural paradigm, but use a wide variety of techniques to assist my patients in acquiring the knowledge, skills and tools they need.

I do individual and group therapy with adolescents and adults in both English and Afrikaans.

Special Interests:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement / Grief / Loss
  • Chronic illness
  • Stress / Burnout / Lifestyle issues
  • Personal Growth
  • Career and professional concerns
  • Adjustment during and after Divorce
  • Retrenchment
  • Retirement

As I worked in a corporate environment for nearly a decade, I’m very familiar with work-related stressors and feel passionate about supporting managers and leaders to develop themselves and their interpersonal skills. As an alternative to therapy, I also do Training and Coaching:

  • For personal and professional development;
  • To improve self-esteem and assertiveness;
  • For achieving goals;
  • To improve work relationships.
