I offer a wide range of high quality therapeutic and assessment services. I specialise in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Integrative Interactional Psychotherapy in treating anxiety disorders, mood disorders, adjustment challenges, and interpersonal difficulties. I have many years of solid theoretical training in psychology, as well as wide ranging practical experience in various settings. I have worked with people in Hospitals (The Steve Biko Academic Hospital), Student Counselling Divisions (at The University of Pretoria), Children’s Homes (The Jacaranda Children's Home), Government Clinics (The Stanza Bopape Clinic), Schools (The High Performance Centre) and Rehabilitation Centres (Stabalis Treatment Centre). Academically, I completed my Bachelor’s degree, my Honours degree and my Masters degree in Psychology at the University of Pretoria. I have published an article in The International Journal of Child and Adolescent Mental Health, which was presented at The 28th International Congress of Applied Psychology in Paris, France. I am working as a psychologist at the University of Pretoria for students in the ISFAP bursary programme, as well as supervising psychology Master students at the University.
