A Cape Town-based child and family therapist
Not knowing how to help our children when they are struggling is one of the hardest things for a parent to bear. Understanding our own experiences of being parented and the impact this has on our adult lives is often an equally challenging endeavour.
I am a Cape Town-based (southern suburbs) social worker, and child and family therapist. I work with individuals, parents or the parent-child dyad, offering counselling and tailor-made parent coaching to address the social, emotional, behavioural or relationship difficulties you, your child, or your family, may be grappling with.
Using evidence-based interventions, coupled with a mindful approach and an attachment focus, I partner with clients to create and implement strategies and processes that work for you and your family. From tricky toddler behaviour to awkward adolescent adjustment, or your own adult journey of sadness, “stuckness”, or conflict, I help clients through managing these difficulties with confidence, respect, and success.
I have a Masters degree in clinical social work from the University of Cape Town and over 10 years experience, including being the family therapist in the in-patient unit in the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Red Cross Children’s Hospital.
I am registered with the South African Council of Social Service Professionals (registration number: 1025147) and my practice number, for medical aid claims, is 0539368.
I live with my partner, toddler son and cat, Jemima, in the Southern Suburbs. I love beautiful, thoughtful and well-crafted children’s toys and games, and run a small sideline business selling them.
My practice is located at 61 Belvedere Road, Claremont.
