What has happened? Often when the initial shock wears off we will say, "I am okay now". Thus we underestimate the impact of the frequent traumas and stressors in our lives. Over time these pockets of tears, fears and pain affect our relationships, leaving us in feeling more alone. I am a Clinical Psychologist with a medical and stress related background. My integrated therapeutic focus is on interpersonal relationships and the emotions that can affect them. I work with individuals, couples and/or with the parents of children who are having difficulties.

Often, how we navigate our traumas is informed by our relationships with our primary attachment figures. So, while I have found that "here and now" work is useful, my experience has taught me that there is no point in resolving what is on the surface if we have never attempted to deal with the root of the problem. I therefore pride myself in taking time to thoroughly understand people, so that we can work towards a more long-term form of healing.

The decision to start therapy is a brave and equally vulnerable one. Perhaps you have had losses of different kinds, started feeling different from your usual self, or experience an urge to know and understand yourself better. Therapy is a space that can be helpful in navigating these experiences, learning new ways of being, and overcoming life hurdles. Together with what the client aims to achieve, the goal of therapy is to fundamentally work on how the individual relates to themselves and the world around them. In therapy we also facilitate the pursuit of the client’s desired quality of life.

These challenges may include some more common complaints such as depression and anxiety, or those trying to come to terms with a trauma or bereavement. My approach is focused and therefore short-term in nature. As such long term time commitments is uncommon. I hope this can help people achieve significant change whilst offering them a more cost effective therapeutic approach.

Life can get away with us and may make it difficult to keep in touch with yourself (whoever that is, whatever that looks like) and that is why I value the concept of taking care of yourself/myself, be it spiritually (religion, nature, art, etc), physically (picnicking, hiking or gym), mentally (reading and doing puzzles) and emotionally (talking, drawing, music, etc). We live in a high pressured, and at times critical society which can make it difficult to navigate even the most "mundane" tasks. I believe that having a safe, non-judgmental space in which to explore various issues is necessary in tension release & self-discovery.

I have been a therapist for 29yrs and have been privileged to share many patients stories of sadness, loneliness, anxiety fear and tragedy. I have witnessed courage, perseverance and the untangling of the recent past and the deeper past in order to live more healthily with themselves and in relationship to others. I believe the quality of the relationship between myself and my patients creates a safe space in which to explore both the conscious and unconscious factors that lead to the breakdown or impediments to the above relationships.

I am a Clinical Psychologist based in Linden (Randburg) and find it particularly rewarding to work with teens (15+ years) and young adults at my practice. Whether you are dealing with the pressures of high school, adjusting to being a student, embarking on the world of work, or navigating the complications of life in your thirties, adolescence and young adulthood is a time marked by numerous transitions and unique pressures that can cause great overwhelm. That said, it is also a time of immense growth and self-discovery - both of which can be facilitated and enhanced through therapy.

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.
