Welcome to my Psychological Services website
As a Counselling psychologist I work with a variety of problems people encounter on their daily basis. My practice (as informed by the HPCSA scope of practice) involve:
- Enhancing human development and potential (e.g. career counselling and management; academic management; procrastination; adjustment difficulties; personal growth; anger management; relationship difficulties; couples counselling).
- Intervening to prevent psychological problems (e.g. stress management techniques; promoting intra and interpersonal awareness; communication strategies; conflict management).
- Alleviating emotional distress and symptoms of psychopathology which affect a majority of people (mild or moderate spectrum that does not require psychiatric care) such as: anxiety and panic attacks; depression; bereavement; self-defeating behaviours; addictions).
I use an approach that is centered on humanistic values and the therapeutic potency of relationships. Our relational capacity in therapy constitutes the foundation for our work together and determines which therapeutic goals are realistic and which are not. No two people are the same and so goes for their goals and readiness to change at any given time.
The final purpose of therapeutic work is to help you reach relational maturity in a safe and accepting environment so that you can deal with your life’s problems in a healthy way. While this may not be the immediate reason you want to come to therapy, I hope that you find the information on this website useful in deciding whether or not therapy is for you.
