Qualifications


MBBCh(Wits), FFPsych(SA), FRANZCP

Advanced Certificates in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

I have specialist qualifications as a psychiatrist from South Africa and Australia.
I am registered as a psychiatrist in both Australia and the UK.
I have subspecialist qualifications in psychodynamic psychotherapy and child and adolescent psychiatry, obtained in Australia.


The work I do


I offer psychodynamic psychotherapy, child and adolescent and family work, and psychiatric expertise.
I provide psychotherapy supervision.


My particular areas of interest


I have a particular interest in providing therapy to:

  • People who have difficulties developing and sustaining close relationships with others
  • People who would like to understand and work on their relationships with themselves (self confidence, self respect, demands they make of themselves)
  • Parents who are struggling to support and manage their children
  • Doctors/nurses/psychologists/psychotherapists

My Philosophy


I believe the fit between the therapist and the patient needs to be good for therapy to be helpful.
I believe that helping some-one involves understanding them and that this often takes time.
I believe in a collaborative way of working, in which both the patient and the therapist’s views and feelings are respected.


Can I help you?


If you believe that you can improve the way you feel by understanding yourself and your relationships, the work that I do will suit you. I may be able to help in situations that have been difficult to resolve and have been going on for some time.


How is the therapy conducted?


I live between Australia and France, so I work exclusively online, via Skype.


How long will therapy last?


This work can be short term or long term, depending on the need and your preferences.

Fees

I am at a stage in my career where I am able to reduce my fee to make it affordable if necessary. The standard fee is €60 / £55 / $65 (USD) per 50 minute appointment.
Appointments on a weekly basis are by negotiation and are usually less than this amount.


Free initial session


I offer a free 30 minute session to look at whether the therapy will be beneficial for you and whether we both feel comfortable working together.
