Life can be full of important, painful and challenging relationships, and for me psychological support is a relationship experience that can lead to insight and positive change. I have a diverse range of interests, and I enjoy working with infants, children, adolescents and adults. I have experience in providing both psychotherapy and psychological assessment. There may be a range of reasons why you need psychological support, and you could require short-term or more long-term work, and I am able to accommodate both. I charge within medical aid rates. I also offer online and Skype therapy, and work after hours and on weekends (Saturdays).

I have a Master's of Arts degree (cum laude) in Community-Based Counselling Psychology from the University of the Witwatersrand. I also completed my undergraduate at Wits, achieving a Bachelor of Science in Psychology, followed by my Honours in Psychology. My first experience in counselling was at the South African Depression and Anxiety Group (SADAG), where I was trained and worked briefly as a telephonic counsellor. During my Master's training, I also provided counselling at the Emthonjeni Centre at Wits. More recently, I have worked at Ububele, a non-governmental organisation that provides psychological services to those in Alexandra Township and the surrounding areas. Currently, I work in private practice at the Medical Centre in Dunkeld West, and also lecture at Wits University.
