“We are all a little broken but broken crayons still colour” Trent Shelton. This is one of my favourite quotes because it demystifies the myth that we should be perfect. We should not be perfect! In order to be true to ourselves, we need to see that we are a little broken. We live in a broken society where so much happens to oppress each and every one of us. Where would we get this perfection from? Give yourself the opportunity to be weak, to be vulnerable, to recuperate, to recharge. This will give you the energy to get back up again and continue with your life’s journey.

I completed my Bachelors of Arts, Bachelors of Arts (Hons) Psychology, and Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology degrees at the University of the Witwatersrand.
I have worked in a number of clinical settings, including Tara children’s unit, Helen Joseph Hospital, and in outpatient community clinics around Johannesburg, including Zola, Hillbrow, Lenesia, and South Rand among other areas, where I worked with adults, adolescents, and children in psychotherapy and psychological assessments.
My interests in psychotherapy are broad, as I enjoy forming therapeutic relationships with clients and facilitating a healing process. I am flexible in my working modality, as I have been exposed to various settings and different clientele. My interventions are determined by the client’s needs. I use both short term and long-term approaches depending on the need at the time. I do however, favour a psychodynamic approach to psychotherapy, which involves exploring clients’ difficulties in depth, in a way that has the potential to create profound and sustained change.
