Sean Friedman - Counselling Psychologist - Sea Point

Sean Friedman

Counselling Psychologist

I work with adolescents, and primarily young adults under 35.

I have been trained psychodynamically and make use of behavioural models to nurture the relationship with oneself (to facilitate greater self-awareness, self-acceptance, and self-confidence) and to facilitate behavioural change in different areas (relationships, health, occupations, and self-care).

In our initial session, I will conduct a history taking, consider your difficulties in context, and provide a professional recommendation. I offer both short and longer term therapy: for clear outcomes, management of chronic conditions, as well as self-understanding and growth.

Some of the areas that I treat:

  • Mood and Identity Disturbances
  • Anxiety: Panic, Social Anxiety, and OCD
  • Complex Trauma and Healing the Relationship with the Self & Others
  • Young Men and Women Issues
  • Gender and Relationship Issues
  • Attention Deficit (and Hyperactivity) Disorders
  • Developmental Concerns: Career / Purpose / Spirituality / Relationships
