Meet The Team
We are a progressive Medical practice based in Vredehoek Cape Town established in 2016. Get in touch today to find out how we can help you.
I am a clinical psychologist working in private practice. I assist adolescents, adults and families who experience a range of psychological difficulties. My areas of interest include (but are not limited to) relationship difficulties, negotiation of major life transitions, bereavement and loss, depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, substance use, identity and self-improvement.
I have previously worked at Valkenberg Hospital (in Adult psychiatry and forensics), Red Cross Hospital within the Division of Child and Adolescent psychiatry, and within the Department of Correctional Services providing rehabilitation to inmates of correctional services; providing psychotherapy to people of all age groups at Heideveld Community Health Clinic and at Akeso Kenilworth Clinic providing treatment in general psychiatry and addictions.
I am guided by a psychodynamic approach as well as integrating cognitive behavioural therapy and dialectical behavioural therapy when appropriate. I am a Registered BWRT® Practitioner.
In my work with clients in psychotherapy, I very much believe in assisting each individual in reaching their intrinsic potential. I’m a believer that clients are their own expertise and work to create a collaborative space to promote sharing, growing and learning. Therapy can be a vulnerable experience, and it’s one that should feel safe and secure in order to access difficult experiences and emotions in order to heal. I am also very aware that we do not exist in isolation; we exist within relationships, families, work environments, cultures, histories, countries, legacies. I find a good awareness of the systems in which we exist, key in understanding an individual and assisting in their development.
After completing her MBChB, and rural community service in the Northern Cape, she spent a year abroad, mostly in India, where she deepened her understanding and intrigue in Eastern philosophies, Yoga and the body-mind-spirit connection.
Her other passion is Emergency Medicine in which she spent 6 years working in state and private hospitals in South Africa, as well as the UK.
During this time she completed various post-graduate courses in Integrative Medicine, one through Stellenbosch University and another by Dr Bernard Brom.
