I am a registered Psychological Counsellor based in Claremont, Cape Town. I work primarily with children, teens and families and I feel passionately about my role as a source of support within an ever-changing society.

I received my qualifications in Educational Psychology at Stellenbosch University and gained experience working in schools in Stellenbosch and Somerset West. The majority of my experience comes from working with adolescent girls in need of emotional support. I am also a qualified Play therapist and Kid’s Yoga teacher, drawing inspiration from these sources for my therapy practice.

I aim to bring awareness to each person I work with by holding a safe and nurturing space for self-exploration and acceptance; awakening growth and development from within.

I base my practice on the philosophies of Narrative Therapy, Play Therapy, CBT and Mindfulness. In this way, I keep my therapy space open to creativity and playfulness while fostering deep emotional care and support for my clients.

  • Adjustment issues
  • Emotional awareness
  • Changing families
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress management
  • Identity development
  • Self-esteem and confidence
  • Family relationships
  • Friendship issues
  • Developing social skills
  • Grief and loss
  • Trauma
  • Career exploration

Services offered:

  • Child Therapy
  • Teen Therapy
  • Family Sessions

 I hope to make a difference within our unique Cape Town community, by bringing families closer together, generating healthy connections and more joy.

Choosing to begin therapy for yourself or your child can be daunting; reach out to a helping hand and I will be there to guide you along the way.
