Hello, I'm Chris
To engage, help and support people in a time of psychological turmoil is my life passion. To see a person overcome their brokenness, to grow and have quality of life was the reason why I become a psychologist and psychotherapist.
I am a registered Clinical Psychologist (PS 0016284) based in Port Elizabeth, South Africa where I run my private practice besides virtual consultations.
My approach is mainly Psychodynamic orientated. It includes other therapeutic methods like Cognitive-Behavioural technique when it is indicated.
I see interpersonal and intra psychic difficulties linked to the history of a person and the influence of parental and other significant relationships. As well influenced by traumatic experiences during upbringing and later years.
My areas of expertise include:
- Individual Psychotherapy
- Diagnostic Assessments
- Couples Therapy (including binational couples)
- Forensic Assessments (court work)
- Family Therapy
- Psychotherapy Across Borders
- Group Therapy
