B.A. Major in English and Psychology Honours in Psychology M.A. Clinical Psychology, University of Cape Town
- I am a clinical psychologist, a member of the Cape Town Psychoanalytic Self Psychology Group and Member of the South African Psychoanalytic Confederation. I am an individual and couple psychotherapist and have a post grad certificate in psychoanalytic self and relational psychology.
I have been in practice for 20 years; previous to private practice I completed community service at the Red Cross Child and Adolescent Unit and worked as a school psychologist.
My practice is situated in a lovely Victorian house in a quiet road near Palmyra Junction and Cavendish Square. There is plenty of parking outside and a comfortable waiting room.
I have a special interest in attachment, parent-child relationships, parenting and child development in general. An aim of both short term and long term therapy is to help clients make sense of the thing that disrupts or blocks continued growth and development.
I am gentle in my approach and believe that therapy must take place within a non-threatening background of safety and trust. I conduct an assessment and discuss the outcome with my client so that all recommendations and options be available for consideration.
Through attunded empathic listening and exploration I help my client make sense of their life and self. Discovering self and making personal sense of things within the context of a therapeutic relationship leads to change and renewed growth.
