Not accepting new clients
I offer counselling and life coaching. Clients will come to me with a range of problems and often feel confused. In our work we will clarify the problem and see what is most challenging for you at the present time. We will discover where this confusion arises in the body and mind and be able to see what started it. Perhaps this has been triggered in the past: by an environment, people, a person, upbringing etc. The work we do is non-judgemental and my purpose is to help you find your way out of the confusion and suffering, so you can find success, purpose and meaning in your life. I will be with you all the way

I believe that mental health is an integral part of our well-being which is underpinned by an appreciation of the intricate interplay between the mind, environment, and physiology. Life challenges should not steal your joy but rather be an opportunity for personal growth. I believe that attitude is key therefore changing your perspective about life is a big step towards healing and living a better quality of life. Just like physical health mental health is something to be celebrated and worth investing in. -Carpe Diem-

Whether you have a specific goal for therapy, or whether you are sitting with a vague sense that something in your life is just not right, I want to help you understand it. I believe that people's experiences of relationships play a role in how they view themselves and others. I therefore prioritize creating a safe space to explore your concerns.

I believe each person is unique; each with our own strengths and weaknesses. With the right perspective and tools, we can overcome great challenges. In fact, by working through our challenges, there is much to be gained - a fuller, more authentic and abundant life. But admitting that you're facing troubles, that you need assistance or that you do not feel fulfilled is the first step. My ideal client is someone who needs a safe space & an empathetic ear to work through their trauma or difficulties, and to discover the hope that lies beyond what they have experienced.

Amidst these times of disruption of the world as we knew it, many are experiencing a deep sense of loss, uncertainty, fear for the future and a sense of hopelessness. Some have lost employment, others have lost friends and family through death, for most, the stability of everyday reality has changed dramatically. Consolidating these experiences, allowing the processes to evolve and find expression, in a holistic and meaningful way, can assist in lightening the load that is ours to carry. In adapting to change we are able to reimagine, see possibility and potential and embrace a new way of being that strengthens our resilience

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Port Elizabeth psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Port Elizabeth specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
