My Approach to Helping

Psychotherapy is a very personal experience and I focus on creating a warm, safe and supportive environment. Therapy is often entered into after a difficulty has become impossible to manage on your own or if you are going through a challenging time. At this point, you often feel overwhelmed and stuck. Therapy aims to alleviate this distress by working through the problem. This means that we will talk about what has brought you to therapy and explore internal conflicts, thinking and feeling patterns, and relationship dynamics. It will also be useful to examine if certain past experiences may be influencing the problem, and if so, to bring these into present awareness, analyse them, and develop fresh insights. This process will contribute to a greater sense of agency, achievement, and help you in becoming unstuck. Our work together aims to improve your ability to move in the world more seamlessly and effectively.

I primarily draw from psychodynamic theory. This is an in-depth form of talk-therapy where you are encouraged to speak freely about anything that comes to mind, including current issues, thoughts, feelings, fears, and dreams. Although working from a psychodynamic perspective, I do include other approaches if these are required. For example, OCD responds well to CBT with exposure and response prevention.

I have worked at a number of inpatient clinics in South Africa, while maintaining a private practice, since 2006. My client base has included a diverse population and a wide range of presenting problems.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I am skilled in working with adults on a one-to-one basis.

What I Usually Need to Know to Help

The first two consultations are usually spent discussing the difficulties that you are experiencing and developing an understanding of your background. This will also include a symptom check, your family history, schooling, tertiary education, occupation, and relationships. I will then offer you my opinion on the psychological issues at play and suggest a way forward.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation to help answer any questions or concerns you may have. You are also welcome to send me an email or WhatsApp.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

A crucial factor in choosing a therapist concerns the personality fit. It is essential that you feel comfortable and understood by your therapist. Meeting with the therapist is the best way for you to determine compatibility.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

Identifying and taking ownership of your psychology is no easy feat and requires a fair share of courage.
At the same time, I believe that all human beings are flawed and have moments of weakness. Acknowledging and working with our flaws and and weaknesses makes us stronger in the broken places.
