Get to know me as a practitioner and person
I am a clinical psychologist operating from Thrupps Centre off Oxford Road in Illovo.
I am interested in the interplay between mental health, emotional wellbeing, spiritual expression, nutrition and exercise. My specialities are relationship counselling and life-coaching, however, I also offer the following professional and psychological services:
•Individual therapy for adults and adolescents
•Trauma and Bereavement
•Group therapy and facilitation

I am motivated and energised by people! I love interacting, sharing and learning with others, whether its on a one-on-one basis or in a group setting. I am a keen sportswoman and outdoors enthusiast.
I am fascinated by business and entrepreneurship; I am inspired by creativity and courage; and I am deeply committed to facilitating the development of a sense of mastery, self-confidence, self-awareness and drive in others.
I have considerable corporate experience, having consulted in the HR, organisational design and restructuring space; as well as engaged on projects requiring facilitation and training; and conducted projects focusing on life coaching, team and group dynamics.
My clinical background includes extensive assessment and therapeutic experience, having worked with children, adolescents and adults in various institutional and community settings. These include: Itsoseng Clinic in Mamelodi; Weskoppies Hospital (Children’s Ward); Tara Hospital Eating Disorders and Adolescents Ward; Sterkfontein Hospital Dual Diagnosis Unit (DDU); Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital Children’s Ward and Outpatient Clinic; and Charlotte Maxeke Johannesburg Hospital Acute Adult Psychiatry Ward.
I work from an integrated, holistic frame, which incorporates aspects that range from psychodynamic and systemic principles to pragmatic concerns including nutrition, health and exercise.
