"whether you think you can or you think you can't - you're right..."

                 - henry ford

If you are struggling with low mood or anxiety, are experiencing chronic pain, overwhelming stress or problems with relationships, then you have come to the right place. 

 

I work with adult individuals and couples and practice from a CBT perspective known as ACT. It is a practical, mindfulness-based therapy with proven effectiveness.

 

My practice is located at the Medi-Spa on Kloof Street, Cape Town and I use Zoom for virtual consults.

 

Since I don't have a receptionist, my practice is fully automated (including payment) so please click here to book an appointment.

About me

Hi, I’m Linda.  I’m a clinical psychologist who doesn’t believe in a “one size fits all” approach to therapy. This is why I use a variety of therapeutic techniques that are in line with a client’s specific goals and needs.  A practical person at heart, I aim to give clients a toolkit they can use whenever they need it.

 

Psychology is full of acronyms. I work from a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) perspective known as ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy).  I like ACT due to its practical nature and proven effectiveness especially when working with anxiety and mood disorders.  It is also very helpful with OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder) and specific phobias. 
 

I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Cape Town and Honours degree through UNISA.  I received my Masters’ Degree in Clinical Psychology from Stellenbosch University.  My clinical training included rotations at Red Cross Children’s Hospital, Groote Schuur Hospital and Valkenberg Hospital.  At Red Cross, I worked with a variety of experts; many of whom shaped my approach to therapy. 

 

Before completing my studies to become a psychologist, I worked in IT followed by brand management and advertising.
