Psychiatrists are medical doctors who have specialised in the treatment of mental illness. They often use medication to treat their patients, but are also able to offer psychotherapy. They are registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa under the specialist register.
I am a psychiatrist with 2 practices, one in Tamboerskloof and one in Durbanville. I spent 5 years working in psychiatry in the UK before returning to Cape Town. I have worked at Stikland and Tygerberg Hospital before going into private practice. I have an interest in Anxiety Disorders, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Adult Attention Deficit Disorder and Psychotherapy. I hope to offer a comprehensive diagnostic assessment and a treatment plan which may include psychotherapy and medication if necessary. If needed I can facilitate admission to a hospital or psychiatric clinic. I claim directly from medical aids.
