You can call on me when you feel low or anxious - maybe you suffered a loss; you're unsure about the future of a relationship; or just feel that you not living the life you were meant to. I utilize terapeutic modalities and methods to instill self-understanding among clients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. Since opening the doors of my practice, I have provided clients in the greater Bloemfontein area and beyond with a wide range of services. From less complicated circumstances, to extremely traumatic and complex crisis situations- my services are personalized to suit everyone’s needs.
I have a natural passion for working with people of all ages, especially students and young adults. I firmly believe that each person's mental health should be a priority and that each person has the capacity to grow and change. I also hope to be successful in being available and being someone to my clients in their time of need. Given my teaching background I also enjoy administering and interpreting assessments. I easily form an alliance with others and enjoy working with problems that also challenge me, since it often gives me a sense of why the situation is also serving as a challenge to the client.

As we move through life, we are often faced with many challenges and sometimes even moments that turn our lives upside down. Traumatic events and distressing experiences often leave us feeling lost, defeated and unsure. Everyone deals with these situations in their own way. At times, we are able to manage and cope rather well however, some challenges and tragedies can start to feel overwhelming and hard to cope with on our own. I know what it’s like to be caught in turbulent times. That is why I put my heart and soul into helping individuals make sense of these moments, put their life back together and find contentment and purpose.

I am counselling psychologist practicing in Bloemfontein and Qwaqwa.
