Clinical Psychologist Cape Town
WHO I AM?
I am a clinical psychologist in private practice in Plumstead, Cape Town. I specialise in cognitive-behavioural therapy with adults, adolescents and couples. I have spent the last 10 years working in both inpatient and outpatient environments with a range of psychological problems. This has included time spent gaining specialist expertise working in inpatient settings with both addiction patients and adolescents. After directing an inpatient drug-rehabilitation centre in 2006, I chose to make the move into private practice, where I currently see clients with a variety of psychological conditions.
