"Truth is not in what happens but in what it tells us about who we are."

Neil Gaiman



I am a Clinical Psychologist practicing in the South of Johannesburg. I offer long-term psychotherapy to individual adults.


If you are visiting this website, you may be considering going into therapy or you may be looking for a therapist. These are processes that may involve a lot of consideration. I hope that this website can provide you with some basic information about me and my approach to therapy that can help get this process started.

The idea behind Psychoanalytic psychotherapy (the particular form of psychotherapy that I use) is that people's lives are affected by unconscious thoughts and feelings that underlie patterns of automatic behaviour and so-called “symptoms”. The patient and therapist work together together to bring those underlying issues to conscious awareness. The long-term aim is that this insight into the unconscious mechanisms then translates to living life more freely, less bound by these unconscious, automatic ways of responding.
