  About me and my work.
I obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Health Sciences and Social Studies with specialisation in psychological counselling through Unisa in 2005. I then completed an Honours degree in Psychology at the University of Stellenbosh in 2006. Thereafter I graduated with a Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology and Community Counselling in 2009..
 
 

 

 

My internship sites included rotations at the Forensic Unit in Valkenberg Hospital, the psychiatry out-patients unit and neuro-psychology clinic, as well as the therapeutic ward at Groote Schuur Hospital.

I spent my Community Service year as the District Psychologist for Mitchells Plain where I was based at GF Jooste Hospital and provided psychological services to the surrounding clinics as well as training and supervision of mental health nurses at Lentegeur Hospital

I am a registered member of the Health Professional Council of SA (HPCSA) a regulatory body which oversees the practice and conduct of health professionals and I am registered with the Board of Health Care Funders of South Africa (BHF). I am also a member of the Psychological Society of South Africa (Psyssa).

Therapeutic Orientation

I have been trained to work from various perspectives including Psychodynamic psychotherapy, Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), Person-centred therapy (PCT), Emotionally-Focussed Therapy (EFT) and Solution Focussed Brief Therapy (SFBT) However I have a keen interest in Relational Psychotherapy. In some instances I also adopt an eclectic approach while always taking cognisance of the therapeutic process, context and the unique needs of the client.
