In practice, I work from an eclectic approach as I have found therapeutic flexibility to be helpful in meeting my patients’ needs. My therapeutic approach mainly draws initially from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Insight-Oriented and Psychodynamic psychotherapy, and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT). If need be, I will use other modalities.

The experience of psychological and emotional pain can feel very lonely. However it's important to know that everyone experiences the following at some point in their lives: depression, anxiety, anger outbursts, low self-esteem, academic problems, relationship difficulties, divorce, parenting difficulties, substance abuse and any other lived experience that has caused distress. Furthermore, needing help applies to adults, teenagers and children alike as pain knows no age. Your lived experience is unique and your concerns about yourself and your life is real.

Life can become busy and difficult, and stress can build up until you feel that you can't take it anymore. Sometimes all you need is someone who is there to listen and guide you through their thoughts. Transitional events can be daunting, especially for teens and young adults. In this phase of life, it is important to be able to sort through their emotions and how they are thinking. Sports performance is majorly impacted by how people think. Injury, burnout, and lack of motivation can negatively impact the way they play their sport.

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.

The pain of continued relational conflict, that just never seems to be resolved can eat at your soul, leaving you feeling alone and exhausted. The desire to have your partner know your pain and see your hurt is what you long for. Whether the pain has been caused by them, or whether you suffer from the pain of abuse at the hands of caregivers or others in your childhood, you want someone to know and understand what you are going through. You want the pain to stop and become free and whole. Sometimes you just wish you could run away.

We all face adversity and often experience traumatic events which are at times challenging to overcome. When we are faced with such challenges, we often want to deal with these emotions and stressors alone. Ultimately, this can heighten our emotions and sometimes makes things worse for us. I believe that everyone deserves a listening ear and to simply have a safe space to blow off steam and unpack the day. Counselling offers you a space to fully be yourself and discuss everything happening in your life.

Life as we know it is challenging – it’s hard! The future seems uncertain, security one thought you had isn’t so secure anymore. Constant stress and past trauma(s) may leave one feeling alone, confused, burnt out, lost, stuck, or that it all has become too much. The constant change and financial struggles seem to be ever-increasing. All (or some) of this leads to anxiety, depression, and feelings that leave us feeling helpless and even hopeless. It also skews the way that we perceive others and our surroundings. You are not alone, there is help at hand!

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.
