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

Excellent psychologist, the best I have ever... seen. Not one of those who looks down on you just because he is educated in that particular field and not one who will schedule an appointment and when you get there, not available it's his/her day off.I think he is brilliant and makes you feel at ease from day one!Thank you Chris, you are a star!! See you soon.read more
