I am a Counselling Psychologist in private practice in Randhart, Alberton, in the South of Johannesburg. I previously practiced in Sunward Park, Boksburg, on the East Rand of Johannesburg.
I completed my studies at the University of the Witwatersrand. My qualifications are a Bachelor of Arts (Psychology and SASL: South African Sign Language) [BA], Bachelor of Arts - Honours in Psychology [BA Hons], BPsyc Equivalent (Psychometrist), and Masters in Community-Based Counselling Psychology [MACC]. I specialized in psychotherapy, psychological assessment and community psychology with individuals of different ages and walks of life. I completed my internship at Epworth Children's Village Therapy and Assessment Centre. This included working with children, adolescents, parents and adults on a variety of challenges and concerns; and within the social welfare context. I have also worked at The Centre for Violence and Reconciliation (CSVR) as part of a community action group, at Childline and at the Teddy bear Clinic during my training. My research was in the areas of transracial adoption, family and race relations in South Africa.
I practice as a counselling psychologist doing therapy, assessment and community work. I am able to work with a range of clients across the lifespan, including children, adolescents and adults within therapy and assessment. I offer both short term and long term intervention. My community work entails psycho-educational workshops which address a variety of South African social issues. I ran a community project with Epworth Children's Village in Thembisa schools focusing on psycho-education with learners and teachers on issues facing adolescents in the community. I also work at the Mulbarton Hospital Psychiatric Unit where I conduct group psychotherapy interventions. I have previously run a support group for depression and anxiety for these out-patients and other individuals with these diagnoses.
