Counselling Psychologist in Fairland, Johannesburg.

Counselling is not just for people struggling with relationships, stress or major life transitions, it is to help improve an individual or couple’s Clarity, Confidence, and Wellbeing.

Counselling is about facilitating change. Change can sometimes happen quickly but in reality, long-standing change usually takes time; firstly, to understand, and then to implement and maintain.

Overcome Challenges, Gain Deeper Self-Insight and Awareness

As a registered Counselling Psychologist, I believe the aim of counselling and psychotherapy is to find ways to maximise psychological well-being, quality of life, and self-fulfilment.

From my practice, I have created a safe space where we can comfortably explore any difficulties or issues you may be facing. Outcomes include assisting you to achieve emotional and personal growth.

When Should You See a Psychologist?

When you feel overwhelmed by life's problems

Depression, anxiety or anger are taking over your life


You are having trouble with a major relationship


You are having difficulties coping with a serious illness


You or your loved one are having difficulties coping


Your job is too stressful and you can’t handle it anymore


You are experiencing addictive or substance use problems


You don’t know what to do, or where to turn for help


My Counselling Approach

When you see a Counselling Psychologist, the time you spend with them is all about you, your challenges and problems, and the steps you can take to overcome them. Even when you’re not facing any particular problems, having that “me time” can be hugely beneficial in helping you navigate and enjoy your everyday life. Talking with a professional can help you sort out your thoughts and feelings when things are difficult or confusing, and help you get back on track.
