Space is now available in a productive, on-going,
open-ended adult psychotherapy group that I
conduct in Kenilworth Cape Town, on Mondays
between 17:30 -19:00. I have been running groups
for several years and am a certified group

o     Wishing to work through difficult experiences
o     Wanting to grow emotionally through the helpful
feedback of others

assess whether this group would meet their needs
and to prepare them for the experience. I do not
charge for the first individual meeting but a fee will
apply for meetings thereafter.

Applicants should be reasonably successful in life,
psychologically minded and stable enough to
contribute to, and to attend the group in a sustained
and committed way. This group aims to accomplish
deep work and hence requires a long term

This group is not suitable for people with psychotic,
active addictive, severe depressive and personality

Cost-effectiveness is an obvious benefit of group
psychotherapy however this is not the only benefit.
Group psychotherapy provides an opportunity for
members to form mutually therapeutic relationships
that allow a direct exploration of their perceptions
and interactions while providing opportunities to gain
through witnessing and working with others in the

This is a private, fee-paying, medical aid deductible
service (R210.00 per session).
