I also possess a passion for trauma work and working with caregivers to mentally ill children and/or adult clients.
Although I predominantly work from an integrated Psychodynamic (insight-based) approach as well as Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT). I do however incorporate other modalities. As my main focus is to meet the client’s needs by tailoring my therapeutic interventions specifically to benefit the client. I value working relationally with individuals, understanding the dynamics between myself and the client, gaining insight into their world beyond the therapy space, and going at their necessary pace, to encourage growth, empowerment, and strategies towards psychological wellbeing and self-acceptance.

I work with you to understand what is important to you and why, and then create a joint plan of action to help you move from a state of languishing, to one of flourishing. I do not do quick fixes, however, I also do not believe in engaging in more sessions than needed.

I am a Clinical Psychologist in part-time private practice in Krugersdorp, West Rand. I have undergone training that focused on systems theory. Hence, the focus of therapy is dealing with client's difficulties by addressing the interactional conflicts and stressors between the client, significant others and their environment. A general systems model holds that families are systems and that every action in a family produces a reaction in one or more of its members. However, I utilise a range of therapeutic modalities in order to suit the needs of clients.

Being a teenager, student or young adult can be exciting phases in one's life. However, due to the rapid changes and challenges in these phases, they can become some of the most overwhelming phases of life. Teenagers and young adults can feel like they are sometimes thrown into the deep end and are expected to swim without the guidance, support and tools to be able to swim successfully. Wellness counselling encourages self care and healthy living, where clients participate in their own healing. As a Specialist Wellness Counsellor, I aim to offer empathy, a listening ear and a guiding hand to facilitate self care and healing.

Trauma and PTSD Counsellors

When should I seek treatment for trauma?

Not everyone who undergoes trauma needs therapy to heal, but many do. If, after experiencing a traumatic event, you find yourself struggling with symptoms such as nightmares, dissociation, irritability, or emotional numbness—especially if these symptoms last more than a month and are severe enough to interfere with your daily functioning—you may benefit from seeking out therapy with a trauma-informed provider.

How long does trauma therapy take?

Different types of therapy for trauma unfold on different timelines. Prolonged exposure therapy and cognitive processing therapy, for example, each take about three months, while trauma-informed CBT may last anywhere from 8 to 25 sessions. Other approaches, especially those that are less structured or that incorporate elements from multiple modalities, may be more open-ended, though many patients report feeling better within the first few months of treatment.

What happens if trauma is left untreated?

Unaddressed trauma can have serious—even devastating—effects on relationships, career, and day-to-day functioning. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can lead people to distrust or lash out at others, making it difficult to maintain intimate relationships; it can also trigger symptoms such as flashbacks or hyperreactivity that can interfere with a person’s ability to function effectively, personally and/or professionally. Some sufferers turn to drugs to find relief. Symptoms may lessen on their own with time, but there is no guarantee that PTSD will resolve on its own.

Can PTSD come back after treatment?

It is possible for PTSD symptoms to recur months or years after successful treatment. This is because, like most mental health disorders, it is not possible to “cure” PTSD, and stressful life events may cause symptoms to recur in even the most resilient individuals. There is no shame in re-experiencing PTSD symptoms nor in returning to therapy when such relapses occur; indeed, many forms of trauma therapy explicitly encourage periodic “maintenance sessions” to reinforce coping skills and ensure that symptoms stay manageable.
