" I am not what happened to me,
I am what I choose to become "
- Carl Jung

I am a Clinical Psychologist based in Paulshof, Sandton. I work with adolescents and adults, including individuals, couples and families facing a variety of difficulties. Some of my areas of interest include Mood Disorders (Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar Mood Disorder), Stress, Psychosis, Personality Disorders, Loss, Relationship difficulties, Trauma and Personal Development, Low Self-image, General well-being / Life Stressors and Parental Guidance, among others.
Each and every person is unique, shaped by our own individual experiences, values, families, social groups and perceptions. Therefore, my approach to therapy is Integrative in nature, tailoring each session to the specific individual and their needs.
Given our chaotic work schedules, clients can be accommodated after general working hours so that finding time for your own process need not infringe on your already busy schedule. In addition, an online option is available.
Feel free to contact me with any questions or to set up an appointment.

Relationships can sometimes veer off into unfamiliar, uncomfortable and confusing paths. Therapy therefore explores the couple relationship, problem areas, expectations, and areas of improvement that will aim to improve the overall relationship.

Progressing from childhood to adulthood has proven to be a time of significant confusion, as well as development, both mentally and physically. As a result, some adolescents may experience difficulties in understanding and moving through this phase. Psychotherapy focuses on unpacking this process, gaining clarity and assistance in successfully navigating this developmental phase.

Workshops and Presentations

Conducting workshops and presentations for groups or companies provides a platform in which the target audience has the opportunity to understand, explore, and implement skills learnt, both professionally and personally. Workshops can be tailored to your specific needs, be it to address specific problem areas, for general growth and development, or as conversational learning spaces.

Given our complex and chaotic lives which generally revolve around the usual working hours, therapy need not be another task which needs to be crammed into our workday. Whether it be due to a busy work schedule, or for personal or logistical reasons, the option of conducting your session online is also available.

Frequently Asked Questions

A therapy session typically spans 50-55 minutes. The first / second session is used to gather information about you, your need from therapy, what your expectations are, and a plan going forward. Consent, privacy and confidentiality is discussed so that you are aware of any limits to therapy. General information about your history and demographic information is collected to gain a better understanding of you. You are also free to pose any questions or concerns you may have at any point. It is also important to remember that you need to be comfortable with the therapist and therapeutic space. For whatever reason, if you are not comfortable or feel that this is not a good fit, that is completely ok!

The number of sessions required differs from person to person. This is largely dependent on your reason for attending therapy, frequency of sessions and what you would like to get out of therapy. The therapist may make recommendations, however the decision is completely your own.

Although this may be the common perception, this is incorrect. Psychotherapy can be useful to everyone, even if you do not have a mental illness or significant life adversities. The process of psychotherapy can augment and further develop a more enhanced quality of life.
