I am a social worker with 10 years of experience. My private practice in Sandton involves working with adolescents and adults with a focus on self-growth, trauma and interpersonal relationships. I also work in a Psychiatric Recovery Centre providing support and psycho education for families with members suffering from mental disorders.

I have a special interest in:

  • Anxiety
  • Panic Attacks
  • Divorce
  • Pet Bereavement
  • Mood disorders
  • Trauma, loss and grief
  • Personal growth/self esteem
  • Psychological Education e.g. helping on understand mood disorders such as depression
  • Assisting families of loved ones diagnosed with a mental illness
  • Employee wellness
  • Conscious parenting

I also offer talks for groups as well as support groups with a focus on divorce and conscious parenting (available on request).

My approach is a person-centred therapeutic approach while simultaneously drawing on other therapeutic models, depending on the needs of the client. I draw from my experience as a therapist as well as my life experience which has seen many trials and tribulations. I strongly believe that one does not have to be in 'distress' to seek counselling as self-exploration is to the mind what exercise is to the body.
