Services

The following services are offered in English or Afrikaans:

Clinical Assessments & Psychological Consultations

All psychotherapy processes with me are preceded by a clinical assessment that considers the person or couple’s biopsychosocial history, reasons for seeking psychotherapy and possible therapeutic plan. Psychological consultations and assessments are, however, also offered for persons who are not necessarily interested to initiate a psychotherapy process, but who may have a need for psychological consultation to recalibrate, brainstorm, gain professional input and guidance, or discuss possible treatment and referral options.

Individual Psychotherapy

Adults 18 years and older. Areas of professional focus include mood disorders (depression & bipolar), anxiety disorders, personality disorders, psychosomatic/somatoform disorders, relationship difficulty, gender identity & dysphoria, sexual orientation. Individual therapy can also relate to my other professional areas of focus as mentioned below.

Couple Therapy

All psychotherapy processes with me are preceded by a clinical assessment that considers the person or couple’s biopsychosocial history, reasons for seeking psychotherapy and possible therapeutic plan. Psychological consultations and assessments are, however, also offered for persons who are not necessarily interested to initiate a psychotherapy process, but who may have a need for psychological consultation to recalibrate, brainstorm, gain professional input and guidance, or discuss possible treatment and referral options.

Psychedelic Harm Reduction & Integration

PHRI involves the implementation of assessment, education and support strategies aimed at reducing & preventing any risks or negative consequences that can accompany the use of psychedelic plant medicines for those deciding, of their own volition, to use it. My services are aimed at enabling potential users to make more informed decisions, mediate any adverse emotional & psychological reactions, and effectively assimilate the experience into their life and psyche.

Mental Health Support to Vegans

Being vegan brings with it its own set of challenges, both intra- and inter-personally. As a vegan myself, I am personally familiar with these challenges. Combining my personal knowledge of living a vegan life with my knowledge on mental health matters I aim to assist other vegans to navigate these challenges effectively while looking after their own well-being and relationships.

Mental Health Support to Animal Rescue/Welfare Workers

Working in the helping field or professions, rescue/welfare sectors or other non-profit or activism areas leads to unique stressors and pressures. I have a special interest in working with such individuals and assisting them with preventing and managing burn-out and compassion fatigue often prevalent among such individuals.

Animal & Nature Related Psychology

Trained in animal assisted therapy and working from an Ecopsychology framework in all my work, non-human animals and nature are often called on, both inside and outside the therapy room, to act as co-therapists in the healing process.

Workshops & Programmes

Developing and presenting workshops and group programmes related to my professional areas of focus as well as on general psychology and mental health topics forms a regular part of my practice.

Sacred Ceremonies

Humans have always been beings of ritual and ceremony. A sacred ceremony is a way to mark and process our life events, healing, transitions, celebrations, seasonal cycles, new beginnings and personal transformation and growth. It also grounds us in our connection to ourselves, one another, Nature, the Sacred, and the spiritual parts of ourselves. In my experience, sacred ceremonies can greatly contribute to our healing, mental health and psychological well-being. Accordingly, I design, facilitate and officiate sacred group ceremonies as well as uniquely designed ceremonies in alignment with the needs of the person, couple or therapy process. As indicated, ceremonies may incorporate the use of plant medicine such as ceremonial cacao.

Public Events & Appearances

Upon request, I am available for public speaking engagements related to my professional areas of focus as well as more general psychology and mental health topics, where applicable.
