Did you know that most people find it hard to talk about personal problems? Some people end up struggling for years because they don't get help. Therapy can help to identify emotional patterns and themes and give you confidence to make changes to improve the quality of your life. I've been in practice for more than 18 years and work with adults and couples. I have a lot of experience working with many problems that make life difficult, such as depression and anxiety. I understand the ways in which they overwhelm us. Let me know if you're tired of putting up with them and want to bring change into your life.

I offer relationship and family therapy. The reasons that the clients have come to me is to try and repair their relationships, either due to unresolved issues, the total breakdown in communication. Sometimes, after years of being together have forgotten how to voice their needs, and have given up trying to have them satisfied. Other times families seek help trying to navigate life with teenagers. I have also worked with individuals who are seeking some direction, purpose and meaning in their lives. People come for therapy as they are aware that they could be living a more optimal life, are exploring and evaluating their lives.

As human beings we grow and journey through life, often we experience the need to change and adapt the way in which we deal with crises. We experience internal turmoil, trauma, stress, relationship, work and family troubles and often these situations demands us to deal with them. The client I would like to work with is somebody who recognises their desire to improve their personal coping strategies to deal with these the best they can. The ideal client is somebody who takes that daunting first step to helping themselves by seeking professional help.

Everyone has ups and downs in their journey of life, but sometimes you need additional support to navigate particular low points. Your thinking may be cyclical, so addressing the problem from multiple angles, with various lenses, can be the breakthrough that is needed. I work with a Humanistic and Positive Psychology framework that sees you as whole and focuses on your strengths. You are not your trauma, your grief, or your diagnosis. I want to help you to improve your quality of life and to fulfill your potential. I also use Resilience coaching to look at your mental, physical and emotional needs, to identify growth areas.

So many are carrying the heavy weight of grief, heartache, loss of connection and so much more. We feel isolated, forgotten, alone in our struggles and often punish ourselves for feeling broken and lost. But the truth is you are stronger than you think, braver than you know, and most certainly not alone. I help people like yourself reconnect with themselves and others, learn new and healthy ways to cope, and find their own way towards healing and meaning.

You do not have to wait until you are in crisis before you reach out to a counsellor. One thing in life that is certain is change and facing challenges. Just navigating normal life transitions can be stressful and overwhelming. We are made to be in relationship with one another and when you are going through a difficulty there can be such power and healing in being able to express to someone in confidence what you are experiencing on a physical, emotional, mental and social level. We all need that space where we feel safe, we are able to share in confidence and there is no judgment.

Cedar Psychology was established to cater to different mental health needs within a safe, non-judgmental and containing environment. We all have our ups and downs, where support from family and friends can be enough to help us manage our stress. Sometimes we may feel that we need more. Some may enter therapy because they have felt sad, worried, confused, angry, or numb for a long time, or would like help processing their past. Others may enter therapy because of sudden life changes such as the loss of a loved one, work/school stressors or relationship difficulties. Whatever your reason may be, support is available.

I believe the way a person thinks, influences their emotions which impacts on their behaviour. Therefore examining foundational thinking and values will foster healing of emotions and eventually lead to change in behavior. Do you feel like you don't have a voice, helpless and marginalized. Come to the counseling space to process life issues.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Cape Town are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Cape Town then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Cape Town psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Cape Town specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
