As a psychologist in private practice I am fully aware of the demands that come with being an effective psychologist. I have trained extensively at various tertiary institutions and I am a double Master's graduate in Industrial as well as Counselling psychology and I have a PhD in Community psychology to my credit. I am the Director of the Bellair Psychology Center and my practice is situated on Wakesleigh Road - Bellair, in a fully enclosed garden setting.

My approach to therapy can be described as being eclectic, incorporating a variety of skills and treatment approaches (traditional as well as complementary). I try to incorporate the concept of the mind -body-spirit when working with clients/patients. My belief is that a holistic approach to counselling can make the difference between peace of mind and chaos. My PhD thesis tested this approach and it was found that people are now moving closer to a balanced lifestyle were these three entities are working in sync. Individuals are now looking at aligning these three areas effectively in order to achieve a balanced life.

Currently, I am actively involved in the implementation of hypnotherapy into my practice, more especially Regression Therapy (Current and Past life) to address psychological problems. The approach I adopt is rather unconventional and moves away from the dogmatic traditions of scientific psychology which my clients/patients have found to achieve effective results.

Along with my mainstream psychological work, I work with various EAP affiliations and I utilise my skills and training as an industrial psychologist to address work related problems. I conduct workshops and training for middle and upper management and I am regularly called upon to conduct one on one sessions with upper management to assist them with work-life balance (Coaching). My training focuses around the use of the MBTI tool which has 70 years of backing and reliability in enhancing team and leadership effectiveness.
