    Special
    interests I have experience
    in working with a wide range of clients, concerns, belief systems, spiritual
    orientations, lifestyles and different cultural groups. I believe it is
    important for each individual to be seen and understood holistically and that

    areas of special interest include,
    but are not limited to:

    Bereavement/Grief; Stress; Relationship Concerns and Destructive Relationship
    patterns, including difficult Parent/ adult “child”relationships; Interpersonal

    Emotional Abuse; Self-esteem; Anger Management; Anxiety Disorders , such as

    Couple

    Counselling: Couple counselling encompasses marriage counselling, pre-marital
    counselling and general relationship counselling. This includes: eg infidelity,
    trust issues, communication difficulties and financial concerns.Both straight
    and gay couples are seen.

     

    Therapeutic
    orientation: I am trained
    and have experience in various therapeutic frameworks and therefore tailor the
    particular type of therapy to the individual and presenting problem in order to
    achieve the best results. These include, but are not limited to: Cognitive
    Therapy, CBT (Cognitive- Behavioural Therapy), Integrative/ Eclectic Therapy,
    Transpersonal therapy, Metaphysical; Solution focussed therapy, Psychodynamic
    and Client centred therapy. I do both short and long term therapy, depending on
    the requirements of the case.

    My
    commitment to you I regard it of
    the utmost importance to put the client’s “best interests” first, while
    practising within the ethical boundaries of my profession. I look forward to
    the honour of working together with you and sharing my knowledge and experience
    in order to assist you to become the “best you can be”.

    My
    internship was at the Clinic/
    Centre for Applied Psychology, at the University of Natal, Durban. This is akin
    to a private practice setting. It was here that I was initially trained and
    supervised in the assessment, diagnosis (applies to “disorders”) and treatment
    of my special interests listed above and much more.

     I
    also have experience in IOD (Injured on
    duty) / Workman’s Compensation cases. This mainly involved trauma work. I have
    therefore developed a particularly special interest in dealing with trauma
    cases.

    I have
    also done a significant amount
    of private practice work for various Corporates and also smaller companies over
    the years. I also do work for some EAP groups (Employee Assistance Programs),
    comment for various magazines and supervise internships and other
    Psychologists.
