I work from an intersubjective framework, and focus on bringing out and empowering the self.
In 1986 I received a Bachelor of Arts degree through UNISA, majoring in psychology. In 1991 I received an Honours degree in Psychology from Rhodes University, Grahamstown. In 1997 was awarded a Master of Arts degree in Counselling Psychology from the University of KwaZulu-Natal, Durban. For my internship, I trained in a clinic at the University and also worked with men who had faced the death penalty at Durban-Westville prison, until the death penalty was suspended in 1995 when South Africa's new constitution affirmed the right to life. My master's thesis explored the way in which prisoners use relationships to cope with stress. In July 1998 I went into private practice and my practice has continued without interruption to the present. From 2000 until 2003 I also worked full-time as a psychologist in one of South Africa’s largest correctional centres, Pollsmoor, in Cape Town. In 2007 I completed a doctoral degree in psychology at the University of Cape Town.

In civilian life people exposed to plane crashes, automobile accidents, acts of terrorism, natural disasters and pandemics frequently manifest psychological "shock" reactions - transient personality decompensation.
