I am a registered Counselling Psychologist (MA Couns Psych (Rhodes)) working in private practice in the Lynfrae, Claremont residential area, and Rondebosch, Cape Town. I offer both psychotherapy and assessment for a variety of clients - children, adolescents and adults - in the form of either Play Therapy, Individual Therapy, Couples or Family Therapy. The psychotherapeutic interventions I offer for individuals, couples and families can take the form of brief, focused interventions to more long-term, in-depth interventions.
Working from an Integrated approach, psychotherapeutic interventions are dependent on one’s needs, desires and difficulties. This approach is predominately based on an Interpersonal framework which uses the therapeutic relationship (one based on acceptance, empathy and genuineness) to bring about change. I have also been trained in Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy and Schema Therapy Techniques.
In my work with children, I work from a Child-Centred approach which provides children with a non-directive and accepting environment in order to safely express their emotions as well as develop a sense of mastery. When working with children, I also work in close collaboration with parents by offering support, parent skills training and psycho-education.
I hope to assist individuals in dealing with a range of difficulties such as relationship or adjustment stress, work or scholastic difficulties, mood and anxiety disorders and childhood disorders as well as to bring about change by providing a private and containing space which gives one the opportunity for self-exploration and personal growth.
Personal growth is a life journey and it is a privilege to be invited as a fellow traveller on parts of this journey and a privilege, as a therapist, to witness the challenging but remarkable changes one makes on their travels.
