Thank you for taking the time to visit my website.

I have created this site with the aim of helping you, a prospective client, to gain a better understanding of the professional services I offer. Hopefully this information will enable you to make an informed decision regarding the appropriateness of my expertise in relation to your current needs. However, please contact me should you have any further questions. Your enquiries are most welcome.

I believe that being challenged is a normal part of life. It is often possible to cope on your own or with the support of loved ones; however, there are times when stress can be overwhelming and support and guidance are needed. Therapy is a collaborative process that allows one to explore and work through challenges in a non-threatening and supportive space.

” Who looks outside dreams, who looks inside, awakes”

About Me

My career has spanned academic, corporate and private practitioner fields. I am actively involved in private practice in Johannesburg and Randburg, supporting people in finding balance, resilience and meaning in life. I am a certified Imago Therapist and a Life - and Business Coach. Additionally I am affiliated to various Employee Assistance Services as a Wellness Consultant and Therapist.

I utilise an integrative approach, meaning that I do not subscribe to only one psychotherapeutic school of thought. I believe that each client is unique and my approach is therefore tailored accordingly to serve each client’s distinctive needs and desires. The initial session will be an assessment and a discussion on reaching goals which will contribute to resolving your present difficulty. Each session will be 50-55 minutes. My rate is closely linked with medical aid rates.

I provide sessions in Afrikaans or English and work comfortably across different cultural and religious groups.

"Courage doesn’t happen when you have all the answers. It happens when you are ready to face the questions you have been avoiding you whole life."
