FIND A THERAPIST NEAR YOU
Imago Africa consists of a community of Imago Therapists who are passionate about facilitating relational health.
Therapists are clinically trained and have a previous degree either in Psychology, Social work or Pastoral counselling. They are also registered with their own professional boards – e.g. Health Professional Council of South Africa.
Each Imago practitioner brings expertise and skills in teaching the art of relational living to assist you in making sense of your own relationship(s) and help you develop deeply connected, meaningful relationships, whether it be with your partner, children, parents, friends or work colleagues.

I work as a couples/relationship therapist/coach/guide. I work with couples to assist in harmonising their relationships and developing a more conscious, alive, safe and intimate relationship. This may involve couples who are in crisis and experiencing intense disconnection. I also work with those who may want more for their relationship/marriage and to deepen their connection and intimacy. I help to engender relationship intelligence and skills for long term relationship health, I have been inspired by the Imago couples therapy philosophy and the Encounter Centred Couples Transformation (ECCT) approach. I'm also a medical doctor and I concentrate on the relationship therapy work. I love the solitude of the wilderness, doing photography, cooking and gardening and my wife Sara and I have been married for over 30 years.
I am a social worker in private practice. When I qualified, I worked at the Dept of Social Welfare dealing mainly with teenagers with family problems. From there, I worked at FAMSA for 7 years doing marriage counselling. During this period, I completed my Masters Degree focussing on marital and family therapy. My thesis was examining the effect of being self-employed on marriage. I started my private practice in 1995, and I qualified as an Imago Relationship Therapist in 2005. I have also supervised and lectured 4th year social work university students during this time. As a result of this, I completed my PhD in 2016, and the topic of my thesis was “Marriage in contemporary Zulu society: implications for couple counselling”.
I am a senior Imago clinician and workshop presenter. I am also Encounter Centre Couples Therapist having completed the 3 year master class in 2017. The services I offer are two day private intensive couples sessions; a making amends process after a rupture; and a goodbye process in the event of divorce. I also offer two day couples workshops and two day singles workshops. These courses are available in South Africa, Brisbane and the UK.
