Amy believes in assisting each individual to reach their intrinsic potential. She is also very aware that we do not exist in isolation; we exist within relationships, families, work environments, cultures, histories, countries, legacies. A good awareness of the systems in which we exist is key in understanding an individual and assisting in their development.
Her therapeutic approach is eclectic. Amy is guided by a psychodynamic approach as well as integrating cognitive behavioural therapy and dialectical behavioural therapy when appropriate. Amy is a Registered BWRT® Practitioner.
She trained through the University of Stellenbosch and completed her internship and community service in the Department of Health and Department of Correctional Services, respectively. She has previously worked at Akeso Kenilworth Clinic providing treatment in general psychiatry and addictions.
