I am a registered psychological counsellor with the HPCSA, currently in Private Practice.
I have offices in Hillcrest as well as Waterfall ( 68 Link Rd, watercrest wellness/medical centre)
My qualifications include: Hons Psychology- cum laude, Hons Industrial Psychology, Hons Psych educational Support- UKZN, PGCE ( Foundation Phase), PGDip in Psychological Counselling- UKZN.
I work with children, teens and adults suffering from anxiety, PTSD, depression, self esteem issues, anger management, trauma, loss and bereavement. My area of qualification is trauma resulting from any life experiences which cause emotional pain such as divorce, abuse, illness, crime, relationships, bereavement. The psychological interventions I use are short term, supportive counselling and coping skills training.
Depending on the clients needs, I will use CBT, BWRT, or Hypnotherapy. BWRT had been successful in treating many areas such as phobias, trauma, relationship issues, self confidence issues as well as PTSD.
I have been trained in using BWRT for both Children and Adults.
Please see the below link for further information on BWRT.
‘BWRT®’ stands for ‘BrainWorking Recursive Therapy®’, a model of psychology and psychotherapy created by UK professional therapist, Terence Watts, MCGI. Like many other modern therapies, it allows a ‘core of privacy’ so that you do not have to divulge anything you would rather not talk about – in fact, the practitioner only needs to know how you feel and how you would prefer to feel instead. BWRT® is a completely new and different therapy based on the latest discoveries about the way the brain works and how it affects our moods, behaviour and emotions. Only Certified Practitioners have been trained to deliver BWRT® and all have to adhere to a strict ethical code. Find out more at http://www.bwrt.org
I also offer Career Assessments/ Subject choice assessments for high school children as well as adults deciding on a career change.
My focus is to help individuals heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths. I achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, and customizing a mental health plan depending on your specific needs.
