Often when one is diagnosed with Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar or any other sort of mental illness, one is
unsure as to the path you need to follow to find yourself again. This is where the role of the Clinical Psychologist
is most valuable. We work alongside with Psychiatrists in assisting in the treatment and management of people
diagnosed with a Psychiatric illness. Where the Psychiatrist helps in assisting the patient with ensuring
that the correct medication is administered and properly managed, the Clinical Psychologist, through a
process of psychotherapy assists in addressing and dealing with the psycho-social-emotional and functional
issues that need to be addressed to ensure better adjustment and reintegration back into one’s life.
As each person’s life challenges are unique, the approach needed to help patients back into health
needs to be accommodative in order to meet their specific needs. A one-type-fits all approach
will not bring about the kind of unlocked psychological insight needed to bring about the
necessary change and growth needed to restore one to proper health and functioning.
As a Clinical Psychologist with a primarily Psycho-Dynamic therapeutic focus, my aim is to try to enable you
to open the door to your guided journey of treatment, restoration, insight, growth and renewal. Breaking
destructive and non-serving emotional patterns in one’s life and gaining insight into what underlies the
development thereof, helps one realise how to go about re-architecturing your world. My hope is that
through this process, each patient will learn how to live and have a fuller and more meaningful life.
