I am a registered Counselling Psychologist in Private Practice at the Kloof Family Health Centre in Durban, KZN. I graduated with a Masters Degree in Counselling Psychology at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. I completed my Masters internship at the University's Student Counselling and Careers Centre, assessing and working with students who experienced a diverse range of psychological difficulties and challenges. Overall, I have researched and had extensive experience in the field of Trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
I currently work with a multi-disciplinary team of Health Professionals at the Kloof Family Health Centre in KwaZulu-Natal. I offer psychotherapy and psychological assessments to adults, adolescents and children facing a wide range of difficulties and challenges.

Furthermore, I work with individuals who face the psychological difficulties and challenges relating to a diagnosis of cancer.
