About me

I am an accredited Psychotherapist and Counsellor in private practice and work with non-judgment and compassion to support my clients to facilitate change, growth and move forward to a place of recovery and hope.

You may be feeling anxious, stressed or depressed, and generally noticing yourself lacking motivation and not enjoying activities that used to bring you pleasure. Possibly you are struggling in your relationships or overwhelmed at work, feeling angry a lot of the time. Your coping strategies may be increasingly unhelpful, and manifesting in self-harm, eating issues, or substance abuse. You may be in a coercive relationship feeling trapped or unable to deal with abuse you suffered in the past.

Over the past few years, I have noticed a growing number of clients struggling with compulsive sexual behaviours, hence I sought specialist diploma level training in sex addiction. I have also seen an increase in those who are impacted by a partner’s actions seeking support to process painful emotions from the shock of finding out, and to help them insight into sex addiction.

My further specialisation is bereavement, following on from managing the Johannesburg branch of The Compassionate Friends, a support organisation for bereaved parents, siblings and grandparents. I additionally work with loss in all its forms, such as difficulties faced following losing a job, or possibly a relationship.

Following on from 13 years’ experience as a secondary school teacher, I have a special affinity for working with young people, and recognise the emotional challenges that can hinder the development of their full potential. Stresses of school, peer groups, social media, family problems and physical changes can leave a young person feeling isolated, scared, worried and overwhelmed, and this is often combined with feeling it all needs to be masked.

I appreciate that taking the first step to seek counselling can be daunting. My aim is to help you feel at ease so you feel free to talk about sensitive issues without feeling judged or shamed. The counselling profession is a privileged one and I am passionate about helping people empower themselves and manage their lives in healthier, more productive ways. What you share remains strictly confidential and I will explain any limitations to this when we meet.

Please note I work online only.
