In my therapeutic approach, I embrace an integrative perspective. As an integrative psychotherapist, I draw from various therapeutic models, recognizing that each person’s journey is unique. Rather than adhering to a single method, I tailor therapeutic techniques to suit individual needs and circumstances. My services are offered to children (psychological assessments only), individuals (adolescents and adults), couples, groups, and families using evidence-based therapeutic approaches and psychological assessments (for clinical or legal purposes) with a Special Interest in Neuropsychological Assessment.

I believe in a solution-focused and evidence-based approach that helps you as a client to heal, grow, change and to self-actualize by changing a pattern in your life. My passion is to unleash each unique individual’s full potential; and I work with all my clients to remove barriers that keep them from doing so. This is done by eliminating undesirable programs in the sub-conscious, and replacing them with affirming ones, which is a fast and efficient way for anybody to change an ineffective mindset and achieve their goals in life.

Embarking on your journey towards healing and finding purpose can evoke feelings of hope and fear. You might be confronting past trauma resurfacing in disruptive ways or struggling with establishing meaningful connections. You may recognise that your usual coping mechanisms are no longer effective. I work with individuals who have granted themselves the space and compassion to explore issues surrounding emotional distress, complex trauma, unhealthy relational dynamics, and fostering self-acceptance.

My passion is assisting families that are going through challenging times. Sometimes just a different viewpoint can bring healing, at other times a more concerted effort is required between the parties. Family challenges can include marital strife, sibling issues, parent-child relationships, and also external influences that cause problems between family members. Other areas I also work in are bereavement counselling, and care of the elderly.

Life can throw curveballs in our path from time to time, and these transitional periods can cause stress, anxiety, depression, and isolate us from our friends and families. Going through significant events such as exams, starting at university, thinking about getting married, getting divorced, changing jobs, or even moving house or country can bring up all sorts of emotions and struggles. At the end of the day, we all want to be able to navigate all of life's challenges with the least stress possible, feeling grounded and supported and ready to face the day.

My journey as a Psychologist has evolved and grown throughout the years and has been in parallel with my own personal journey. While I have helped countless individuals and families, I have taken away many lessons and experiences from them as well. The most important component that has remained in this process has been the importance for me to continue to provide a safe space where individuals feel heard and listened to. Where for just one hour per week anyone can unpack and wade through muddy waters of emotions, pain and challenges to eventually be able to take the tools acquired in therapy and apply them in the future.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

Psychologists listed in the directory are registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA). The majority of General Counsellors featured in the directory align themselves with reputable professional bodies, particularly the Association for Supportive Counsellors and Holistic Practitioners. All Registered Counsellors listed must be registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA). Social Workers listed in the directory must be registered with the South African Council for Social Service Professionals.

Providers whose professional membership or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Given that professional memberships are not a statutory requirement for general counsellors in South Africa, certain qualified professionals or organisations may choose not to maintain such memberships despite possessing the necessary qualifications. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Psychologists, counsellors and social workers can all provide counselling or talking therapy and have credentials and supervised, practical experience that enable them to do so in South Africa.

Psychologists have five years training in psychology, have completed an internship over 12 months, and have completed the National Examination of the Professional Board for Psychology. They must be registered with Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA). Registered Counsellors must have at least four years of study at a university or college, such as the Bachelor of Psychology and have completed the National Examination of the Professional Board for Psychology. General counsellors, such as Supportive Counsellors, Holistic Counsellors, and Wellness Counsellors, registered with the ASCHP must possess at least an NQF Level 4 qualification. Social Workers must possess a Bachelor of Social Work and must have completed an approved internship in the social service sector.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, the cost of a therapy session in South Africa could be between R600 and R1,500. If you have private insurance, your plan may cover some if not all of your sessions. You should contact your insurance provider to determine if they provide coverage for therapy sessions and to determine what, if any, requirements they might have in order for your sessions to be covered, such as a referral from your GP or medical specialist.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postcode.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Therapists who are registered with the HPCSA and professional organisations such as PsySSA or the ASCHP are bound by an ethical framework that requires them to uphold a confidentiality agreement. Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship and only under specific circumstances, such as when there is the potential or known harm to the client, or as required by law, will a therapist be obligated to break the agreement. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed during the initial consultation.
