I completed my B.Sc (Psychology Major) at the UKZN (Pietermaritzburg) in 1988 and went on to complete my Social Science Honours at UKZN (Durban) in 1992 and my Social Science Masters in Clinical Psychology at Rhodes University in Grahamstown in 1995. I have been in private practice since 1996 and work with individuals and couples, have an interest in depression, anxiety and grief counselling, and my orientation is largely psychodynamic.
My first experience with Imago was as a client in 2004 when my marriage was in crisis; through therapy we learnt how to connect and communicate more effectively.
Imago Therapy provides a safe forum for expressing relational frustrations that can be transformed into growth and healing opportunities. The “Getting the Love you Want” Workshop is a wonderful 2 day workshop which explains why we are attracted to our partners and teaches ways of resolving ruptures in the relationship.
I love Imago because it makes so much sense and because it provides powerful processes for healing and growth. I am passionate about the healing relational possibilities it presents for us with the relationships we enjoy, as we work daily to become conscious and intentional individuals.
I am a Certified Imago Therapist , Workshop Presenter and International Clinical Instructor and together with my colleague Carol-Ann Dixon run regular weekend workshops for Individuals, parents and Couples which are truly transformational and connecting experiences.
I offer 2-3 day Intensive Couples sessions during which time I work with one couple to explore the dynamics of the relationship, help the couple re-connect emotionally, and facilitate ways of re-solving frustrations through the use of the Imago Dialogue.
