PLEASE NOTE:

While I do regularly work with clients in individual counselling on problems and difficulties concerning their important personal and/or work relationships and families, I do NOT offer couple / marital / family counselling. If you need types of counselling I do not offer, then please consider using the online directory of the Durban Practising Psychologists’ Group ( http://dppg.org.za ) to search for appropriately experienced registered psychologists. The best way to search is to select 'Directory' at the top of their home screen as you can easily refine your search on the right hand side of the screen to get the most relevant search results ( http://dppg.org.za/directory/ ). Usually the profile of each psychologist provides helpful information regarding the kinds of clients they work with (e.g., children / adolescents, adults, groups, families, etc.), their focus areas (e.g., couple / marital counselling, play therapy, neuropsychological assessment, personality disorders, and so on.), and their contact details.
