About Me:

I'm a psychologist in private practice. I'm interested in current affairs, particularly in South Africa, which is not always good for my mental health. I work in an area of Pretoria which affords me the privilege of getting know an extremely diverse range of people with fascinating stories. In that, I'm privileged. I've spent many years working with extreme trauma and with perpetration.

A conscience is a small inner voice that tells you if you are acting morally or not. It tells us whether our behaviour is good or bad.

We are told by Mantashe that the President cannot be removed before December as the president of the ANC is the Presi

So it seems in South Africa where ANC politicians are convinced of their beliefs and positions.

Why didn’t most whites in South Africa stand up against apartheid? Because it was more comfortable not to.

Do not wait for someone else to stand up and do the right thing. Encourage everyone you know to choose the high road and demand that our politicians behave.

So many of the factors that have underpinned and led to genocide in other areas of the world are present in South Africa. We are on dangerous ground.

Anxiety can manifest in numerous quite diverse ways and can dominate the sufferer’s life, but there are many ways to combat it.

Behavioural activation gives very good results in managing depression. How good? As good as cognitive therapy, as good as cognitive behavioural therapy and as good as medication.

Students have to take whatever is happening in their lives and somehow start to determine where they place themselves in the world. This is no easy task.

EMDR or Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing is an apparently bizarre approach to dealing with trauma. It shouldn’t work and yet we have 25 controlled studies that say it works.

I mentioned in a previous article that I wanted to discuss various therapies that are shown to work. In this article I’ll start with a fascinating, surprisingly effective approach known as Behavioural Activation for Depression.
