Embedded within my understanding of human existence is the  principle of Gaia.

Gaia reprsents my belief that our planet is a living organism, intricately connected through various systems of relationship. My approach to human health and pathology is thus based on Systems Theory and also on Relational Psychoanalysis.

These approaches hold that within the tapestry of human relationships, the past -  threads itself into the present, our past walks in front of us, creating our present and our future. I see psychotherapy as a transformative process which helps us understand our past and all the positive attributes it has provided us and to embrace that help us to grow and develop and foster life. It also helps us to transcend and change those patterns which are destructive. 

I have had 34years of experience in psychotherapy and have a well-established practice in Lakefield Benoni.
