EXPERIENCE

After completing the academic year of my Master's Degree at Stellenbosch, I did my internship year at both Tygerberg and Stikland hospitals. I rotated within the child and adolescent unit and the medical psychology unit at Tygerberg Hospital. For my community service year, I was placed in the military system in the Western Cape. I embarked on my professional career as a Clinical Psychologist at the Centre for Therapy and Personal Development at the University of Stellenbosch. Subsequently, I opened a private practice in Stellenbosch and consulted in town for 7 years. I mainly worked with students and adults at the time. In 2014, I made the decision to exit private practice temporarily, to be at home with my children. This was an “incubation period” of learning in itself. During this 4-year period, I took the opportunity to familiarise myself with the field of Jungian Psychology, and I see myself developing a lifelong commitment to this approach.  I find it an incredibly rewarding pursuit. In 2018, the opportunity of working at Optima RustenVrede hospital crossed my path, one for which I am very grateful and very excited about. 

INTERESTS

I believe we all have an inner wisdom, irrespective of age, and if we learn to listen closely and tune in, it will truthfully tell us a whole lot about ourselves. I believe in the healing capacity we each carry within. I find this journey of “discovering what is already inside us” and using it to its full potential, incredibly meaningful. My approach includes the application of attachment-related theories, Jungian psychology, relational and psychodynamic models, and mindfulness-based work.
