Introduction to Michelle
I am a registered Clinical Psychologist in Private Practice in Johannesburg. I work from a practice in Parkhurst
and from a practice in Bryanston
. I graduated with a Masters degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Johannesburg. In addition to my Masters degree in Clinical Psychology, I have completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) at the University of Johannesburg and have working experience as an educator. My experience as a Clinical Psychologist includes having worked at Weskoppies Psychiatric Hospital in Pretoria and at Charlotte Maxeke Johannesburg Academic Hospital. I am a registered member of the Health Professions Council of South Africa
(HPCSA), the Board of Healthcare Funders of South Africa (BHF). In addition to the formal qualifications I have obtained, I frequently attend additional courses, symposiums and workshops so as to continually grow my range of experience and expertise. On occasion I participate in radio interviews and provide comment for various magazine articles:
Longevity Magazine Sept 2013; Longevity Magazine Nov 2013; Longevity Magazine May/June 2014
I utilise an integrative approach, meaning that I do not subscribe to only one psychotherapeutic school of thought, but rather utilise an integration of different approaches so as to ensure a goodness of fit between client needs and therapeutic approach. I believe that each client is unique and my approach is therefore tailored accordingly to serve each client’s distinctive needs.
The fees charged for psychology sessions are within standard medical aid rates as approved by the Board of Healthcare Funders of South Africa (BHF). Please be advised that my practices operate as cash practices, therefore you are responsible for payment of sessions. You can claim the cost of the session(s) directly from your medical aid. It is advisable to contact your medical aid to enquire about the availability of funds and the benefits of your medical aid plan (as not all medical aid plans make provision for psychology sessions).
