Many people I meet are seeking meaningful connection; they yearn to be listened to, fully seen and understood for who they truly are. They need to belong. I believe that if we all stood in a circle and held hands, each of us could take a little love from the person on their right, absorb what they need and pass the remainder on, to the person on their left. Is this not our role on the planet - to nourish and uplift one another as best we can?

A psychologist helps you deal with the issues through bringing perspective, exploring options, developing strategies and increasing self-awareness to get you back on your feet and empower you to take back control of your life. Therapy is not only for people who are feeling overwhelmed in areas of their lives but also for those who are curious about knowing and understanding themselves in greater depth and those who want the opportunity to share their views, be heard and gain new perspectives on their situation and experiences.

Ideally, I would like to work with a person who primarily wants to be empowered in developing practical solutions to alleviate their current challenges. This would be a person who has experienced any form of traumatic incident in the course of their recent life. Further, it would be an individual who has been displaying life adjustments which have begun to affect their personal and professional relationships. In light of these concerns, my ideal client would partner with me in developing a holistic treatment plan to address these issues for more effective functioning.

Hello, thank you for reading my profile. I believe therapy is a process where a client and their therapist explores life events with the purpose of getting better. Life events impact how we think, feel and behave- so in therapy, we get to explore these crucial events in a safe and confidential environment. I work with clients who endeavor to rethink, heal and grow from a variety of issues including mental health conditions or symptoms. The issues that I am usually presented with include, life events such as trauma and bereavement, or presenting symptoms similar to anxiety, depression, ADHD, etc.

All aspects of life that we experience as intrinsically meaningful require that we feel in control, committed to goals, confident in our abilities and skills, perceiving challenges as opportunities for growth and success.

I love working with people who feel different. Specifically, with regards to gender, sex & sexuality, relationship structures and parenting with awareness & intention. In Sex Therapy we think about your sexual and intimate life. If sex (solo or partnered) is not what you had hoped it would be, counselling can be a helpful process to get a better understanding of how the body-mind connection works when it comes to the different elements of sex. I am committed to unpacking harmful narratives & misinformation, while creating a safe space for you to do the work.

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.
