Support For Individuals, Couples, & Families
If you need help with Anxiety, Depression, Stress management, Couples Therapy, Eating disorders or Personal Development, let’s chat.
Individual TherapyIndividual therapy entails one-on-one sessions between a therapist and the client. It does not necessarily need to take place in times of crisis or distress but can also assist an individual in personal growth and development. My professional interests include, but are not limited to: Depression, Bipolar, Anxiety, Disorders of addiction (alcohol/drugs), Adjustment, Bereavement, and Trauma .
Couples TherapyCouples therapy involves joint sessions with the therapist and the couple. The length of a session is usually 60 minutes. Couples therapy aims to address the unique stressors and conflicts that are being experienced by the couple. It assists in improving communication, exploring patterns that may be problematic, and enhancing the strengths within the couple system. It is also useful in helping the couple deal with important changes in the life cycle such as birth of a new baby, children going to school, dealing with teenagers etc.
Group TherapyGroup therapy can be an effective treatment choice for drug addiction, depression, bereavement, and traumatic stress. It helps you realise you are not alone, facilitates giving and receiving support, helps you find your voice, helps you relate to others (and yourself) in healthier ways, and provides a safety net
Medico-Legal AssessmentsThe assessments are conducted following the request of a legal representative or third party.
Transformational SpeakingIn a world where people are afraid of change, it may sometimes be necessary to embrace the disruption. I strive to make a genuine difference in our communities by changing minds through touching hearts. Keynote topics include:•Realizing the dream: A career change story on how to continue to follow your dreams,- Going against the current: Overcoming drugs and peer pressure-My space in the digital world- Pros & Cons of Media-The boxing ring: A metaphor for survival.
Family TherapyFamily therapy involves sessions with the therapist and various family members (depending on each family’s unique composition). Family therapy helps the family deal with issues experienced by the family such as conflicts, illness within the family, and identifying patterns of interaction among family members that perpetuate problems.

Psychotherapy can help eliminate or control troubling symptoms so a person can function better and can increase well-being and healing. Research shows that most people who receive psychotherapy experience symptom relief and are better able to function in their lives.Psychotherapy has been shown to improve emotions and behaviors and to be linked with positive changes in the brain and body.
