My name is Taryn. I am a clinical psychologist practicing in Noordhoek, Cape Town. I offer therapy to children, adolescents and adults. I am passionate about my work with my clients and am continually inspired by the power of the therapeutic relationship.
I have gained experience (including neuropsychological and psychometric assessments) in a wide range of settings working with a variety of issues. I obtained a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology (with distinction) from the University of Cape Town. I was fortunate to do my training at the Child Guidance Clinic, where I primarily assisted children and their families struggling with learning, emotional and behavioural difficulties. I gained further clinical experience through rotations at Valkenberg Psychiatric Hospital and Groote Schuur Hospital. I completed my community service year at Stanger Hospital (KZN).
I primarily follow an integrative psychodynamic approach to therapy, but draw on principles and skills from other therapeutic approaches (such as Dialectical Behaviour Therapy) according to the unique needs of each individual.
I am registered with the Health Professionals Council of South Africa (HPCSA).
