Welcome to My Psychology Practice

I am a HPCSA registered Clinical Psychologist in Cape Town with special interests in Health Psychology and Functional Medicine, with a particular focus on Holistic Adult Mental Health and Wellness – Treating the “Whole” Person; while adhering to my scope of practice. I prefer to work within an integrative framework, to fit with individual clients’ needs. I am experienced in both short and long term therapy, clinical assessment and consultation, and multidisciplinary team interventions.

Considering Therapy?

One of the major concerns for most of us when considering therapy is that we may have little or no idea of what to expect. If you have to go to your doctor with a cold or an ear ache, you have at least some idea of what sort of treatment to expect. But psychotherapy? Is it just a chat between two people, one of whom calls him- or herself a clinical psychologist (and charges a fee for it)? Or is there more to it than this?

Psychotherapy can help you develop insight into the causes of your emotions and consequential behaviour, and it can create the basis for you to adopt more productive ways of dealing with them. The aim is to equip you with the knowledge and confidence to grow out of your challenge so that you can successfully address problems or difficulties that might arise in the future.
