Registered Counsellor in Parkwood, Johannesburg
Hons (Psychology), RAU and Bpsych (UNISA)
One of my favourite quotes is by Hycner and Jacobs … "The human heart yearns for contact … each of us ... yearns to be … recognised in our uniqueness, our fullness and our vulnerability."
I am a professional counsellor and work with adults, adolescents and children in many areas including trauma, the struggle to form a sense of self, difficulties in relationships, loss of enjoyment in life, bereavement and personal growth, amongst others.
My focus is on people looking for solid ground within themselves – people who are working towards self-understanding and acceptance. Sometimes this is based on the desire for personal growth and sometimes in a struggle to find and embrace one’s self.
I have a background in art therapy and use it with clients who prefer non-verbal communication or expressive mediums. I find that creating images can be a powerful way of getting past mental ‘noise’, and getting in touch with ourselves.
I have had five years of experience working with Lifeline and The Art Therapy Centre and have been in private practice since 2010.
My fees (2012-13) are R388 for a 1 hour session.
The major portion of this can be claimed from medical aid.
