" Life is not black or white, we live in shades of grey, and grey can be confusing and uncomfortable."
I am a clinical psychologist who is passionate about relationships in all various natures thereof. I enjoy working with adults for individual therapy as well as couples. I have experience in the clinical field as I worked at Sterkfontein Psychiatric Hospital, but my love for therapy started when I worked in community clinics.
I work from a person-centred approach, of which the guiding principles are empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard. Through this approach, I focus on what a person is experiencing in their here and now, while unpacking some things of the past when necessary. I focus on each individual's needs and integrate various theories and tools to address these most effectively. I believe that often we need to rather find ways to get through uncomfortable feelings, than ways to get around them (although this would seem easier).
I currently do not take on any new clients, but we have 8 top psychologists who do. Choose a psychologist blow with whom you feel most comfortable.
