“We are all a little broken but broken crayons still colour”
– Trent Shelton
Therapy is a process that allows you to replenish, to recuperate, to understand yourself,
to understand your reactions and then to act. Processes are not easy but they are necessary.
Take this journey with me so we can start your process of
colouring even with your broken parts.

“We are all a little broken but broken crayons still colour” Trent Shelton. This is one of my favourite quotes because it demystifies the myth that we should be perfect. We should not be perfect! In order to be true to ourselves, we need to see that we are a little broken.
I completed my Bachelors of Arts, Bachelors of Arts (Hons) Psychology, and Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology degrees at the University of the Witwatersrand.
My interests in psychotherapy are broad, as I enjoy forming therapeutic relationships with clients and facilitating a healing process. I am flexible in my working modality, as I have been exposed to various settings and different clientele.
My interventions are determined by the client’s needs. I use both short term and long-term approaches depending on the need at the time. I do however, favour a psychodynamic approach to psychotherapy, which involves exploring clients’ difficulties in depth, in a way that has the potential to create profound and sustained change.
I have worked in a number of clinical settings, including Tara children’s unit, Helen Joseph Hospital, and in outpatient community clinics around Johannesburg, including Zola, Hillbrow, Lenesia, and South Rand among other areas, where I worked with adults, adolescents, and children in psychotherapy and psychological assessments.
