Sean is a Clinical Psychologist who works with adults and adolescents. He enjoys working with people with a wide range of concerns, whether it be personal growth and development, or coping with depression, anxiety, mental illness or psychological distress.
Sean also has a special interest in psychosis, including “schizophrenia” and other “psychotic disorders.” He belongs to the Johannesburg chapter of the The International Society for Psychological and Social Approaches to Psychosis (ISPS.)
Sean completed his MA. Clinical Psychology degree at the University of Johannesburg. He then trained as an intern at Tara Hospital. He then completed his Community Service at Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital. From a theoretical perspective, Sean’s approach to therapy is predominantly informed by psychoanalytic thinking. In short this means that the therapy focuses on feelings, often originating in early life, that have been pushed out of conscious awareness, with the aim of allowing these feelings to come into awareness in the present in order to be processed and understood so as to decrease the power they have on us in the present.
