Individualized Therapy for adolescents and young adults


Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)

My approach is person-centered and solution-focused. We are Specializing in depression, Mindfulness, anxiety and mindfulness and Therapy For Teens in Cape Town. I try to create an environment for my patients that is, from the get go, warm and accepting. I am empathetic to the challenge’s adolescents and young adults face and understand that people know themselves best. My role therefore is facilitating growth and encouraging the innate strength I believe we all possess. My work draws predominantly from Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) as this has strong empirical support particularly as a form of therapy for depression, anxiety and self-esteem. MBCT essentially brings together two highly regarded forms of therapy known as Mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), however I bring in various approaches to suit the needs of my patients. I have experience in a wide range of areas including:

ADHD (diagnosis & executive functioning training)
Therapy for anxiety
Sexual health (e.g. problematic pornography use) 
Problematic Screen use (commonly referred to as screen ‘addiction’)   
Adjustment difficulties
Anger management difficulties
Behavioural problems
Self-esteem concerns
Peer and parental conflict
Mood disorders (therapy for depression)
