In his own words:

I’m a registered psychologist with two passions – counselling psychology and executive counselling. To support my passion for counselling, I am trained in experiential psychology, cognitive emotive behavioural therapy, post rationalist therapy, emotion-focused therapy, and hypnosis and have a keen interest in alternative healing. I have mixed this with a Postgraduate Diploma in Human Resources and Masters of Business Administration (MBA) to better support my corporate clients.

As a counselling psychologist, I assist clients with addictions, (drug and alcohol dependent and compulsive behaviours such as gambling) relationship counselling (marriage counselling), depression, stress management and anxiety disorders. My approach is holistic with a strong influence on emotion-focused therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy. Although I focus on the process, I support my clients to achieve the outcome that they desire.

Executive counselling develops clients into competent managers and leaders and supports them with their lives and career prospects in a holistic manner. I bring my personal experience as a manager in the corporate world and my training as a business person (HR-MBA) and as a counsellor to my clients. My passion for organisational development and strategic consulting combined with my experience allows me to support and develop professionals and executives in a unique manner. Executive counselling sessions are akin to having a strategic consultant, an HR manager, a coach and a therapist all in the same room supporting the progress of clients’ careers and lives.
