Our society struggles with prioritizing their mental health. As a Clinical Psychologist, I am here to advocate for mental health through consultation services and group workshops. Acknowledging that you need help and furthermore taking a step towards obtaining such help is not an indication of a "weakness" or " Failure". Rather, it is an indication of courage, strength and resourcefullness.

I'm a Clinical Psychologist with specialisation in child and adolescent psychology. I am committed to promoting well-being in children, adolescents, and families. I work from a strengths-based and trauma-informed approach, which includes a focus on attachment and meeting clients at their basic need of safety and security. I use Brain Working Recursive Therapy (BWRT) as part of my intervention for trauma, anxiety, and grief. BWRT is a technique that harnesses the brain's ability to rewire itself. It helps individuals process and reframe traumatic experiences more effectively.

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, Ficksburg and Clocolan. As we know life can present with various challenges (challenges with work, relationships, health, identify, trauma etc.) and some of those challenges are connected to the past. Being in therapy can be a great way to make sense of your experience, gain insight, grow and heal. When I work with individuals in therapy I incorporate their culture and spirituality in my treatment because our lives are part of so much more. I offer psychotherapy to individuals, couples, families and groups. I believe ‘the life you want is on the other side of seeking help’.

“You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending” (C.S Lewis) To reach out to a psychologist might feel scary and overwhelming but it might also be one of the bravest things you can do! I am willing to take your hand through your difficulty, and allow you space to talk, to be, to vent and to ask the questions you are so afraid to answer alone. Sometimes therapy can be challenging, maybe overwhelming and at times difficult, but you are not alone and in the end I hope that you can say “it was worth it all”. May this be a meaningful experience for you.

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
