Areas of Special Interest
I specialise in the mood disorders, anxiety, phobias, depression, stress, pstd. I also assist in immigration fatigue, adjustment disorders, sexual identity disorders, eating disorders and existential crisis.
At heart I am a believer in the strengths of my clients. There is nothing more exhilarating than discovering the core of the problem. I am the expert in theory and experience but I see my clients as the experts in their lives, together we make a great team.
I also believe that life style influences the symptom greatly. The way you identify with the life around you and the way you portray yourself influences the self concept.
Relationships bring healing as it confronts the self with issues that slumber in a un-reflected life. In our therapeutic relationship we challenge, theorise and experiment with life. The problem is externalised and analysed in order to understand and manipulate it.
I am a systems and strategic therapist. I study my client's behaviour and experiences as part of their different system. Systems therapy uses the techniques in order to narrate a different outcome for the client.
