I have worked as an addictions counsellor since 1991. Initially I worked at the Drug Counselling Center in Observatory, Cape Town. I then joined the Chemical Dependency Unit at Kenilworth and became the first social worker in the multi disciplinary team when it moved from Kenilworth to open Stepping Stones, Rehabilitation center in Kommetjie in 1998.

I subsequently went into out-patient private practice, working with substance and process addictions. I counsel addicts, their partners, addicts together with their partners, and their family members. I will assess their level of addiction and their consequent treatment needs; i.e. either counselling and/or facilitation of rehabilitation.
