About me and my therapy practice
I am a Counselling Psychologist and completed my Professional Doctorate in Counselling Psychology (DPsych) at City, University of London. Registered with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC), British Psychological Society (BPS) and British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), my approach is integrative. This approach allows me to customise therapy, creating a bespoke treatment plan for each unique individual, with their own set of unique issues.
I aim to provide an empathic, non-judgemental, transparent and supportive space where clients feel safe enough to open up about their various issues, and I aim to provide a trusting environment, where clients feel they are truly being heard. While therapy helps clients to process and understand difficult or painful thoughts, and feelings, I also believe that through individual therapy one can spend the necessary time identifying and understanding their maladaptive behavioural patterns and coping mechanisms. My approach is tailored to the individual client.
Coming from South Africa, I understand diversity, multi-cultural environments and the range of difficulties living in a cosmopolitan hub can bring. I understand the internal and external pressures people can put on themselves, as well as the extraneous pressures and stressors people feel they are subjected to in this fast-paced City – all of which can lead to unhelpful or damaging coping strategies. I work to identify healthier ways of managing emotions and stress. I specialise in depression, anxiety disorders (phobias, OCD, panic disorder etc.), anger management and trauma.
