Profile

Registered Psychologist with about 20 years private practice experience in Durban.  I am trained in various therapeutic frameworks and therefore tailor the particular type of therapy to the individual and presenting problem in order to achieve the best results. Privacy, confidentiality and varying belief systems are treated with the utmost respect.  I have experience in working with a wide range of clients, concerns, spiritual orientations and different cultural groups.  Therapeutic orientation I use a wide range of therapeutic techniques. These include, but are not limited to: Cognitive Therapy, CBT (Cognitive- Behavioural Therapy), Integrative/ Eclectic Therapy, Transpersonal therapy, Solution focussed therapy, Psychodynamic and Client centred therapy. I do both short and long term therapy, depending on the requirements of the case.  I generally, although, not always, use CBT for the treatment of anxiety disorders. These are techniques based on research evidence.  Experience I have also done a significant amount of private practice work for Corporates and also smaller companies over the years and comment for various magazines and supervise internships.
