Online Counselling


We all experience trauma. Whether it's a divorce, being overlooked for a job promotion, or dealing with a challenging teenager who is coming of age. You don't have to let your circumstances, background or poor choices define who you are, or who you will become. Let's talk about it. Yes, it will probably get messy, but there is a beautiful story yet to be written.


Personality Assessments


Do you know what really motivates you? Are you curious about what your strengths are and how you can use them to be the best you can be? Maybe it's time to take a personality or motivation questionnaire. I am a certified Personality and Ability Assessment Practitioner and would love to help you gain insights that will elevate you to the next level.


Why trust me to help you?

Whenever I look at people, I see potential. It is the way I am wired. I have an empathetic ear and the mind of a strategist. In short, I want to hear your story and then turn you into the hero of your story. But that means you first need to own your story.

Trauma doesn’t scare me. And as a professionally registered and trained counsellor, I highly value confidentiality. When you come and see me, I want you to feel safe, heard and inspired.

Besides being enormously passionate about what I do, I have real-life experience. Being married for 16 years and a mother of 3 children taught me some of my most valuable lessons. I have lived in three different continents, struggled through relationship difficulties, and experienced my own fair share of trauma. I believe in the power of therapy because it helped me in my own journey. Now I want to help you.

I hold a BSocSci (Honours) in Psychology (Cum Laude) from the South African College of Applied Psychology (SACAP). I am a registered counsellor, a certified Personality and Assessment Practitioner and a Certified Natural Health Coach.

More than just a good listener

Sometimes all we need is an ear to listen to our story or a slight nudge in the right direction. I believe that we often have the answer within our hearts, but with life throwing so many curveballs at us, we struggle to see the path right in front of us. I view my clients as people who are able to achieve whatever they dream of. I cannot wait to work with you on a plan to get you from where you are to where you want to be.

What to expect in our sessions

We start by talking about you and your life story. Typically, themes will emerge that provide us with clues on how to redirect the course of your life, whether it means capitalising on your strengths or breaking a bad habit. Sometimes, you’ll complete a personality or motivation assessment to provide us with additional insights into your life. Finally, we develop a plan to help you get unstuck and live your best life.

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of those depths.”

― Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

My Approach.


Happiness is fascinating. It is so simple, yet profoundly allusive. Most people think, “if I get this job, I will be happy,” or “when I am married, I will be happy”, or “if I have a lot of money, I will be happy.” However, happiness research shows us that what we think will make us happy (our circumstances) only amounts to 10% of what actually makes us happy. Why do I share this with you? Because I know you also want to be happy (otherwise you wouldn’t bother to talk to me about the things that hurt you or make you feel stuck). My approach is aligned with the positive psychology movement. Even though it has been labelled as the “science of being happy,” there is a lot more that goes into being happy than most people realise. That is where I come in. I use my psychological background and passion for helping people reach their full potential to help you be happy. And don’t worry, I’m not talking about the hedonistic, shallow type of happiness. I believe in the power of authenticity, vulnerability, compassion and the fact that suffering can have a purpose (think of post-traumatic growth). Let’s turn your adversities into assets and help you get the most out of life.

Location (not that it matters)

I am based in George, in the heart of South Africa‘s Garden Route. It is here where I normally have face-to-face sessions with my clients (when we don’t have a global pandemic like Covid-19).

However, thanks to modern technology like Zoom, WhatsApp, Skype, Google Hangouts and Microsoft Teams, I provide online counselling, personality assessments and talent management advisory services to international clients in all parts of the world.
