I work eclectically and draw from various theories to best suit individual needs.
I completed a B. Psych (cum laude) and Masters in Psychology at UWC. I have worked at various facilities since graduating including The Cape Town Drug Counselling Centre (CtdCC), The Dual Diagnosis Unit (DDU) at Kenilworth Clinic, Centre for Student Support Services (CSSS) at UWC as well as various tertiary public psychiatric hospitals where I completed my internship and community service years.
My interest and passion in human behaviour transfers to my work practices. Baring witness to others life stories has given me compassion and empathy to others pain. This has also allowed me to witness the extraordinary resilience and love possible. And as such, my respect for both the simplicity and complexity of human experiences is extensive.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Often the thought of therapy can itself be anxiety provoking, particularly with what may be portrayed in media at times. As such, let’s demystify the process and help you gain a clearer picture of what to expect.
I strive to provide non-judgemental and caring experience which becomes the environment to safely explore and understand your difficulties. Over the first 2-3 sessions, a clinical assessment is conducted in order to gain a clear understanding of diagnosis and overall functioning. This allow us to establish clear treatment goals and collaboratively work on interventions.
I have been trained in various therapy modalities and as such, all interventions will be personalized to your individual needs.
