MA (Clin Psych), University of Pretoria
My Training at the University of Pretoria included both a systemic and psychodynamic approach to therapy. I have a firm understanding of both the fundamental principles of psychology and the post-modern approaches that have been developed more recently in the field.
At its core, however, therapy is a relationship based on trust, honesty, and mutual respect. I regard myself as one of many people in a client's life who can support them in making choices that enable them to live the life they want. The treatment approach needs to fit the client and not the other way around.
