Special Interests

I’m a clinical psychologist in Rosebank, Cape Town, working with adults, older adolescents and couples.

Areas of special interest are:
• struggles with self-worth
• stuck or destructive patterns in relationships
• depression, low energy, lost motivation or blocked creativity
• debilitating anxiety, including OCD, social anxiety and panic attacks
• coping with parenting, divorce and mid-life issues
• distress around body image and food.

Orientation and approach

In my approach to psychotherapy,
• I will encourage a compassionate attitude to your own struggles and actively support ways of caring for yourself.
• In a couple, I will try to facilitate a careful understanding of what each partner may be experiencing and also what patterns you may be creating together. If empathy with each other is difficult, we will try to understand and work through the obstacles to intimacy.
• I will try to offer a safe space for vulnerable or difficult feelings.
• But also honour and encourage the strong, life-affirming and resilient parts of the self.
• Where appropriate, we will work on acknowledging the wounds from the past and making sense of how they have affected your relationships in the present.
• My overall aim will be to work collaboratively with you to find ways of making your experiences in the present more meaningful and alive.

Membership of professional organisations:
• Health Professions Council of South Africa
• Cape Town Psychoanalytic Self Psychology Group
• South African Psychoanalytic Confederation

Practice number: 086 001 8644667
HPCSA registration number: PS0066052

My practice is open on weekdays and Saturday mornings.

Personal Statement

Being human can be tough. Painful experiences of doubt, sadness, shame, anger and fear often can’t be alleviated by logic or reassurances. Psychotherapy is one avenue for understanding and relieving psychological pain.

Psychotherapy can’t fix the past or control the future. But it can offer a unique experience of self-discovery in the company of another person. Through psychotherapy, I believe it is possible to learn unexpected things about ourselves, gain relief from unbearable worries, make space to process painful feelings, and find renewed hope, courage and energy. For couples, psychotherapy can offer a safe space to take a step back from intense conflict, unpack each person’s experiences respectfully, and build new ways of relating.
