As we face lockdown with the rise of COVID-19, I am able to hold sessions via web powered sites (e.g. Zoom, Vectera, Facetime) and have had a great deal of experience
using this medium in the past

Michael is an intelligent and thoughtful observer with a clear thinking approach: he is an astute listener with a vibrant and creative mind. He offers brief and long-term work to couples and individuals, helping them work through a wide range of emotional and behavioural difficulties.

“Therapy can really work for men. Blokes are very bad at talking about their problems” – Alex James, musician and bass player for Blur

During counselling he will bring clarity and sensitivity to the room, with sharp and enquiring interventions. This will allow you to hear your story and come to your own conclusions.

This creates a safe space for authentic and open discussion, encouraging self-reflection and facilitating change.
“Our work has brought clarity and progress. Thank you for your commitment to us and especially to our relationship. I immediately felt at ease with you, and it was though I was chatting to an old friend.”
– A former couple client

Michael works across the heterosexual and LGBT spectrum, however emotionally rich or challenging the material might be.  He is passionate about helping couples and individuals, and does so in an affirmative, therapeutic way; he believes that when people are listened to with respect, problems and conflicts can be explored in a non-judgmental environment.

Michael qualified at the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships in London (now Tavistock Relationships), the world’s leading organisation for training in couple psychoanalytic psychotherapy. He recently completed a year-long study course at the Institute of Psychoanalysis. Prior to returning to Johannesburg, Michael ran two clinics in the United Kingdom – one in Harley Street, London, the other in Marlborough, Wiltshire.
