"Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakes."
My passion for psychology began early in life and my entry into the field was born out of a mixture of empathy, com-passion and curiosity to understand myself and others, to explore patterns of behavior and their links to the past and understand the intricacies of the human mind. The enlightening, exciting and at times, challenging journey to become a Psychologist was actualized at the University of the Witwatersrand, where I graduated Cum Laude with a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology.
My training at Wits provided a strong foundation in psychodynamic theory and practice and I enjoy formulating and working from a relational/intersubjective and humanistic paradigm. However, I tailor my approach and therapeutic intervention in order to prioritise the unique needs of each client.
I have a particular focus on helping my clients resolve past problems, deal more successfully with current life challenges and strive towards a more fulfilled and happier future.
In my spare time, I constantly find myself drawn to books and documentaries that are centered around human behaviour and psychology. In addition to that, I enjoy the outdoors, hiking and taking my dog for walks. I am also passionate about bringing positive change in the mental health sector in South Africa, through awareness and advocacy, specifically on social media platforms.
The decision to enter therapy is not often an easy one, and it may take courage. I constantly strive to offer a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space in which we can embark on a therapeutic journey together.
Now that you know a little bit about me and my story, I am ready to hear yours.
