I love working with young Educational Psychologists in developing their skills through supervision and various workshops. I also have a passion for working with teenagers and young adults. Much of my work focuses on Career Guidance and Development, where I combine an exciting range of qualitative techniques with the more traditional psychometric approach. This allows me to assist individuals in gaining insight into their personal journeys and motivations as they make career decisions, thereby enriching their self-knowledge. I conduct Psycho-Educational assessments for IEB and GDE Accommodation purposes, and for diagnostic purposes.

As a counselor, my mission is to guide individuals who are seeking more fulfillment in life, empowering them to navigate the delicate balance between work, personal aspirations, and self-discovery.

In our sessions, we explore the unique challenges that arise from juggling the demands of daily life, families and parenthood while striving to pursue personal dreams and aspirations.

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.

Most people just want to be happy. While that can certainly be achieved through counselling, I believe happiness is an emotion, like others, that comes and goes. Instead I work with you to create more peace, joy and fulfilment in your life. These are deeper long-lasting goals that are the foundation of life satisfaction. Over and above the specific concern you wish to work on, I aim to help you connect with who you really are as a person and facilitate the path to who you would like to be.

I enjoy working with individuals, couples and families addressing current challenges with a Solution Focused approach. 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 be very challenging. We are sometimes faced with situations that are beyond our control, such as the loss of a loved one or the actions of our partners and families. We are not always in control of the experiences life gives us, but we are in control of how we deal with them. At times even our own actions or decisions cause us stress and pain. Whichever journey it is that you need to explore in order to heal and grow, remember to reach out for help. You do not have to go through it alone.

People usually seek help from a psychologist when they want something to change. This desire for change may be motivated by painful thoughts and feelings, a situation at work, school, or at home, a challenging event, or relationships with others. Sometimes people work with a psychologist because they want a better understanding of themselves, to change behaviours, or to develop new skills to support their well-being. If any of this is true for you or for someone you care about, getting in contact with a psychologist is a useful step to take.

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.
