Counselling Psychologist in Johannesburg for Individuals, Couples, and Families

Effective couples counselling, trauma counselling, marriage counselling, and family therapy is about creating small changes that if reproduced daily and weekly, can lead to big changes that feel significant.


My aim working therapeutically with you is to create a safe and comfortable environment where we can collaborate towards achieving your goals. I work with adolescents, adults and couples to improve relationships and address challenges like depression, anxiety, procrastination and really, anyone just trying to get out of a rut.


Trauma Counselling

I help people who have experienced trauma to get back to the version of themselves that existed before the trauma, and where possible to utilize the experience for a higher level of the functioning post the traumatic event.

Weight Loss Therapy

There can be few harder habits to master than that of healthy eating and regular exercise. I work with individuals who want to get back (and stay) on the path towards the vision they once had for themselves as healthy individuals.

Family Therapy

Family or group therapy can be a useful way to engage as a collective to discover ways to support each other and find common ground in finding solutions for the benefit of all in the group.

Anger Management

Anger is a normal human emotion felt by everyone from time to time. However, anger can become problematic if it leads to yelling at loved ones, threatening others, showing aggression, or physical violence.

Bereavement Counselling

Sometimes speaking to an objective professional can provide unexpected relief and hope for the future after having lost someone close to you.

Online/Video Counselling

I offer an online therapy experience as close as possible to being face-to-face in my office in Johannesburg.

Couples Counselling

Every couple was successful at being in their relationship at one point in time, otherwise, they would not have started the relationship in the first place. If a couple makes the commitment to attend couples counselling, then I know they haven’t given up on rediscovering that success. I collaborate with couples to try to get them back to being at their best.

Managing Stress

People are working longer hours than ever before as they try to keep their heads above a financial water line. They often end up feeling helpless and hopeless. My job is to help them re-establish a sense of balance that works for them in their lives.

Growth is just on the other side of our comfort zone’ we are often told. Yet as human beings we are generally resistant to change. We prefer the familiar even when we know that it is not moving our lives forward. How can we facilitate change when our minds so actively shy away from it? Collaborating with an experienced counselling psychologist can help make change feel more manageable but also help you through some of those resistances and ‘growing pains’ that come with the journey to change. If you take the first brave step of contacting a therapist to help you with making some kind of change in your life, then you are already well on your way to a better life.

Why See a Counselling Psychologist?

Having a feeling that something feels ‘off’ or ‘just not right’ or ‘missing’. It’s not always easy to verbalize what it is that feels out of balance in some way, counselling or therapy can help reveal what you are experiencing and determine what changes you would like to make as a result.


Having a good life but wanting to find a way to make your good life great, in whichever area of life it might be relevant to you. Seeing a Psychologist doesn’t only have to be during times when you are experiencing major problems or feeling like one’s life is in a state of crisis.

When you feel that you need to speak to someone objective in order to come up with solutions that might offer a new way of tackling a problem.

Experiencing a problem that you feel you are not ready or comfortable to discuss with family or close friends.
