I am a Registered Counsellor and Certified Health Coach, therefore I am passionate about working holistically with my clients. Hence, my focus is on the integration of body, mind and soul and how these influence the process of transformation. Although my training and expertise is in the counselling process, you are the expert of your own life. It is in light of this that I prefer collaborative ways of working which engage the client as the expert of their own lives. A collaborative, solution-focused approach, enables me to work with my clients in ways that allow for optimum personal growth.

I have a psychotherapy practice that offers clients specialized psychotherapeutic care. My practice is for adults who need help with problems like mood disorders, substance use disorders and even aspects of their own personality they may find difficult to change. I like to collaborate with clients, to think together with them about what they may need to reflect on that will bring them value and meaning in their day-to-day life. In addition to this I think it is important to examine patterns of excessive or unhelpful behaviour that compromise their feeling of self-coherence, agency and place in the world.

I am a registered Counselling Psychologist working at a practice in Claremont and my own in Kommetjie, Cape Town. I offer psychotherapy to adults, and couples. My therapeutic approach is rooted in integration, which honours brain, mind, and body connection as ways of accessing the source of the problem. I am classically trained in talk therapy from a psychodynamic perspective which I integrate with neurotherapy known as eye movement integration (EMI) and BWRT (Brain Working Recursive Therapy) whilst holding somatic space for embodiment. This allows healing to become deeply integrated in your life.

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.

A Level 4 Addiction Professional registered with the Board of Addiction Professionals South Africa (BAPSA), I offer affordable counselling for people with addictive disorders as well as for the people living with them. Addiction is a family disease and affects everyone close to the disordered person. I use a counselling style known as Motivational Interviewing. This is a person centred approach, wherein the client is considered the expert on their own lives and the counsellor is there to facilitate change through strengthening motivation. I work from rooms and online.

Alcohol Use Counsellors

Are there specific medications for alcohol use?

There are oral medications approved to treat alcohol use disorder—such as disulfiram, acamprosate, and naltrexone, which also comes in an injectable form. These medications do help people reduce their drinking as well as avoid the problem of relapse. Naltrexone helps reduce cravings, disulfiram can make a person feel sick when they drink, and acamprosate may help ease symptoms like poor sleep and anxious feelings.

How do alcohol recovery or rehabilitation programs work?

In inpatient programs, individuals live in a facility with other patients in recovery; in outpatient programs,individuals live at home. These facilities are staffed with healthcare professionals including physicians, nurses, psychologists, counselors, and psychotherapists. Staff can also include people who have recovered themselves, serving as mentors and guides. These programs may use abstinence, harm reduction, detoxification, psychotherapy, and other tools for recovery.

How do 12-step programs combined with psychotherapy work?

Members of 12-step programs help each other reach abstinence and work to maintain it. These programs promote complete change in the individual’s emotional, mental, physical, and even spiritual perspectives. Some programs require that new members attend 90 meetings in 90 days. Many people do attend these programs in conjunction with their work in psychotherapy; the combination of therapy along with 12-step can be extremely effective.

How does harm reduction combined with psychotherapy work?

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, harm reduction prevents death, injury, disease, overdose, and substance misuse. People who choose harm reduction for alcohol use reduce the amount of alcohol they intake. It is not abstinence-based like a 12-step program, but combining harm reduction with psychotherapy proves to be effective for many people.
