Cyber therapy

(Online Counselling)

For the health of all, our current preferred method of contact is via online video chats.

People are in an uncertain time with the corona virus [COVID-19] pandemic, which means it’s more important than ever to evaluate your mental health.

Online and telephonic counselling offer you, the client, the same level of support, confidentiality and sustainability as you would have in a face to face session. Instead of meeting face to face, we would have your session online via any of the followings media:

Trauma Counselling

I work with many trauma related issues. My ultimate aim is to empower you and to welcome you as a collaborator in your therapy, not to attempt to impose control over you.

There is no magical treatment that will heal you overnight, nor is there one form of psychotherapy that is right for everyone. A therapeutic approach will be followed, that works for you.

A technique that is often used with remarkable outcomes, is TIR (Traumatic Incident Reduction Therapy).

Anger Management

I view Anger management as a process, not a set of events. The process can help you identify stressors. You learn steps to help you stay calm in anger management. You may then handle tense situations in a constructive, positive way.

The purpose of anger management is to help you decrease anger. It reduces the emotional and physical arousal that anger can cause.

Techniques and approaches used could be (or combinations of): TIR (Traumatic Incident Reduction Therapy), a Client-Centred Approach, and REBT (Rational Emotional Behavioural Therapy).

Substance Use/Addiction Counselling

I have extensive experience in addiction counselling. (I regard eating disorders as a pattern where addiction and the neuro circuit are vital components in the phenomenon).

Addictions such as Eating Disorders, Alcohol/Drug use, Gambling and Pornography are treated in a systemic manner and where necessary with pharmacotherapy. A CBT approach to enforce the establishment of new neurological pathways is essential, as well as Motivational Interviewing to ensure the necessary support and motivation. A client-centred and systemic approach remains the focus during the process and the TIR technique as well as the colour therapy techniques add immense value in the journey.


I have been an advocate for  a Harm Reduction approach with regards to substance use since 2010.

Having attended Harm Reduction Conferences in Liverpool and Beirut, I was invited to become part of the technical workgroup of the UNODC (United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime). It provided me with many opportunities to advocate for key populations. I also implemented the approach in my therapy, and participated in research projects concerning PWID (People Who Inject Drugs).

As a Harm Reduction specialist I presented various workshops to stakeholders in Tshwane Municipal Districts, Social Work professionals, first year medical students, as well as a poster presentation in Beirut.

I believe that much can be achieved through the Harm Reduction approach. More information, click here.

Mental Health Disorders

I have extensive experience in counselling individuals suffering from depression, anxiety, Trichotillomania and who self-harm. Apart from following a systemic and client-centred approach, TIR (Traumatic Incident Reduction) as a therapy tool is utilized as it provides wonderful healing that encourages improved mental well-being. Developing self-awareness and self-empowerment through a Gestalt Therapy approach, consisting of different techniques, also result in new coping mechanisms and problem solving. Where appropriate CBT techniques are also implemented. Both guided imagery music therapy and art therapy are also incorporated, where applicable.

Palliative Care (incl. Cancer counselling services)

Palliative Care is an approach to provide the necessary psycho-social support and care to people suffering from terminal illnesses. The focus is on the quality of life, and ensuring dignity and optimal pain relief through the effective management of pain. Having worked in a Hospice setting it remains a passion to journey with individuals suffering from Cancer, Motor Neuron disease, Multiple sclerosis and other chronic and life-threatening diseases. Music therapy and Art therapy individually, as well as in a group-setting, alleviates anxiety, anger, grief, and depression.

A Patient-centred psycho-social approach is essential.

Play Therapy

Children don't have the same cognitive ability as an adult to say what is bothering them. Whether the problem is a behavioural issue, psychological issue, or maybe even medical, they need a way to discuss it. The therapeutic powers of play through the systematic use of a theoretical model, encourages change in behaviour and processing emotions. Sand play therapy, the use of clay, games and other forms of play are some examples of techniques used.
