I have been in practice for over twenty years. I work with adults and adolescents. I am interested in trauma and have worked a lot with post-traumatic stress disorder, mood disorders and anxiety disorders.
I work with relationships and in particular the impact of traumatic experiences on relationships. I also often work with lifestyle issues. I have recently submitted a doctorate on the adjustment of torturers after committing atrocities. I am fairly matter-of-fact and direct. I like to work with clearly defined goals and therefore often use cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).
I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR was developed in the field of trauma where it gives good results. I also use hypnotherapy when it is indicated.
I arrange CPD for psychologists through a company we have established www.traecan.co.za. We also present workshops for the general public. Please visit us for upcoming events and let us know if there is something you would like to attend or present.
