I am a psychological counsellor registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) and I mainly use Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). In SFBT we FOCUS on solutions, strengths and resources. Most noteworthy, we do this WITHOUT ignoring problems. Read more about the approach, here.
Furthermore, I am actively part of an international community of Solution Focused therapists. Consequently I am listed internationally as a Solution Focused counsellor.
In addition, I have 18 years counselling experience in various settings.
- educational (high school and university),
- medical (general wards and emergency rooms),
- community level,
- on-site (trauma counselling),
- online and
- private practice.
Within these settings I have dealt, among other things, with trauma, stress, burnout, feelings of depression and anxiety, relationship issues and addiction.
Finally, I have dealt with diverse target groups. This included, adolescents, young adults (students), adults , couples and employees within business environments.
