My ideal client is anyone of 11 years or above who wants change. Any client requesting or attending therapy, I regard as a willing and positive client, capable of change. Someone who is actually already creating part of the change, although he/she might not yet be aware of it. Even people in a lot of emotional pain, reporting for therapy, is expecting something, however small their hope or expectation might be. This includes, anyone experiencing trauma, stress, burnout, grief, relationship issues, challenges of adolescence, abusing a substance or feeling anxious or depressed.

I work individually with adults who might be feeling overwhelmed or struggling to cope with difficulties that may be related to depression, anxiety, trauma and life changes. For the treatment of depression and anxiety disorders, I primarily make use of a skills based approach called Metacognitive Therapy (MCT). I am a certified EMDR practitioner, a helpful approach for the processing of trauma. I also draw from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and psychodynamic approaches, depending on the specific needs of the client.

I love helping people with personal development. Everyone has their struggles and challenges, their dreams and desires. I love to walk with my clients to help them overcome their obstacles to their dreams and find fresh solutions. Be those obstacles low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, addiction, financial or relationship problems. I want to see my clients be their own biggest cheerleader, to stop self-doubt and judgement and to give themselves the freedom to be themself. My passion for therapy is not because I am perfect and have it all together - but because I have found the joy and freedom of coming into my own authenticity.

All of us at some point might need support to deal with the many challenges of life, whether it be a personal crisis, a loss, an addiction, a feeling of stuckness or a change in one's ability to cope. I offer compassionate and non-judgemental psychotherapy for adolescents and adults. It is not always easy to take the first step to start therapy and to be vulnerable, but allowing yourself to open up is often the start of the journey towards acceptance or change.

As humans, we are social beings. We, therefore, need to form relationships with one another, in order to feel "whole". When an individual reaches out for help with their mental health, they start a cycle of healing. Mentally healthy individuals create healthy families, which spills over into healthy communities, and ultimately, a healthy society. So although I have a passion for working with couples and families - building, restoring and maintaining functional relationships, starts with each individual.

I provide short and longer term individual therapy. The first two to four sessions provide an opportunity for you to express your current concerns and for me to get a better understanding of what you are experiencing. Thereafter, we can discuss a therapeutic plan moving forward. I focus on difficulties related to depression, anxiety, bereavement, managing life transitions such as adjusting to student life or managing relationship changes, coping with physical health problems and adjusting to life affecting medical diagnoses. I also work with people seeking input to facilitate personal development.

Each professional in Cape Town then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety.

Psychologists in Cape Town specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others.

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.
