Welcome to MK Psychology
Sometimes life can get too much, we feel "stuck", hopeless and there seems to be no way forward. If you've found yourself here, I understand that there might be something that you are struggling with that might be worrying you. Maybe, you just need some guidance in certain areas of your life or you might have experienced a traumatic event. Wherever you are in your life right now, I am here to provide a safe, nonjudgmental space for you to share your difficulties, concerns, goals and dreams and challenges.
My goal is to provide a range of affordable services that can assist and guide you where needed in order to promote positive change, growth and development. I specialise in working with children, adolescents and young adults and prefer to use an integrative holistic approach in my therapeutic and assessment process.
I believe that everyone has the ability to grow and develop themselves. However, starting that process is not always easy. When you are ready, invite me to join you on your journey of self awareness and discovery and let me guide you through your process.
Privacy and Confidentiality
The relationship between a psychologist and clients exists within an ethical and legislative framework, designed to protect the client(s) and the psychologist. Vital amongst these guidelines is the right of the client to confidentiality and privacy.
As a psychologist registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa, I am ethically bound to treat all information disclosed in therapy or emergent from assessment as strictly confidential. Psychologists may only disclose any information regarding the client with the consent of the client (if > 18) or the consent of the client's guardian/s (if the client is <18).
Exceptions to the above code of confidentiality (a psychologist’s legal obligation to report) is in the event of the client being at risk of causing harm to his/herself or to others, and various forms of abuse. Another exception is in the event of the psychologist being subpoenaed by a court of law.
Confidentiality also requires the safe and secure storage of case records to protect the identity of clients and the contents of personal and private information.
