Profile

Psychoterapeutic & Coaching Approach:

I am Clinical Psychologist, Clinical Hypnotherapist & Life Coach, and have been counselling and coaching people since 1978.  I offer Psychotherapy, Counselling, and Life Skills Coaching to adults, adolescents, couples and groups

My aims are to provide sincere Care and to Empower people to rediscover their healthy selves and live victoriously, as effectively as possible, and according to their highest values. 

I am highly ethical in all my dealings and my vocation is to help people in the most effective manner to become liberated from their history, beliefs and habits, so that they can be truly happy and successful in all aspects of their lives, without undue delay.

My original training was in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, including Self Psychology and Jungian Psychotherapy, as well as Rational-Emotive and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (RET & CBT), followed by 5 levels of Clinical Hypnotherapy and 2 levels of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing).

I choose to work integratively, from different knowledge and skills bases, focussing on generating effective outcomes through a case-by-case individually-created Integrative Psychotherapy protocol.

This approach incorporates the latest findings in Neuropsychology and Positive Psychology, with psychodynamic-based insight, as well as tools from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Rational-Emotive Therapy, Hypnosis, Trauma De-briefing [including EMDR], Systems Theory and Consciousness Field.  I am also trained in Health Psychology and Neuropsychological Assessment [adults and adolescents].

I am a member of the Unashamedly Ethical organisation and committed to upholding high ethical standards in all approaches and all practice.

For Trauma-debriefing specialization, please see http://www.selfgrow.co.za/205/eye-movement-desensitization-reprocessing-emdr/ for further information.

Hypnosis training includes Hypnotherapy [5 levels] through the South African Society for Clinical Hypnosis [SASCH] and I use mainly Ericksonian and Ego-State hypnosis approaches.

Hypnosis is an excellent tool natural to all of us.  It is NOT mind control but a wonderful facility all people are born with, and enhances medical, CBT, and holistic techniques to help us improve functioning and mind states in every conceivable problem area, including:

       health, immune functions, hormonal functions [incl PMS, menopause, infertility, sexual functioning], skin problems, post-surgery recovery, preventing unpleasant side effects from e.g. chemotherapy, pain management, etc.;

       depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, panic attacks, phobias, OCD, etc.;

       addictions and stuck habits of any kind;

       creativity, problem-solving, self-esteem, confidence;

       stress, burn-out, exhaustion, negative expectations, anger, abandonment and other fears, etc.

Please see http://www.selfgrow.co.za/217/hypnosis/ and http://www.selfgrow.co.za/articles-list for more information. 

Number of sessions:

My approach is Integrative and is individually planned according to presenting problems, and client needs and resources.  The number of sessions is similarly determined.

Some very distressing symptoms or history, such a single-event traumas and/or panic attacks, no matter how severe [e.g. a car smash or rape], need relatively few debriefing sessions – often just 1-2 if EMDR is used, but chronic trauma [such as rejection or verbal abuse by a parent] requires more sessions.  If clients use the skills demonstrated even long-term harm can generally be debriefed in under a year.

I have also worked in Employees Wellness systems for more than a decade, specialising there in solution-focussed intervention, which is useful for clients who cannot afford many sessions.

In the first session, after listening to your problem-description and history, and assessing your resources, I will advise you about a recommended course of treatment, and discuss alternatives.  Thus I prefer an 80 min+ first session, in order to help you effectively.  Generally it is advisable to plan for at least 6 weekly sessions. Some disorders, like panic attacks, can usually remit within 2-3 treatments, but you may need further intervention to address the original causes.

Couples/marital therapy usually requires longer-term commitment.
