THERAPY

I provide therapeutic services to children, adolescents and adults to assist them in dealing with moderate to severe mental illness as well as expected day-to-day stressors and personal difficulties.

    • I prefer to use an integrative therapeutic approach with adolescents and adults, i.e. combining skills and elements from different psychotherapy approaches to suit each individual client’s needs.
    • I use a child-centered play therapy approach when working with young children,  which allows children to “fully express and explore self (feelings, thoughts, experiences and behaviour) through play, the child’s natural medium of communication, for optimal growth and development” (Landreth, 2012).
