Sinette G. van Rooy Booysen – Durban

I am a registered Clinical Psychologist practicing in Durban. My profession was chosen based on a sincere interest in the mental well-being of those around me. During sessions I aim to empower my clients to flourish. I work with children, adolescents and adults through individual, marital or family therapy.

Therapy is seen as collaboration between client and therapist. A technical eclectic and integrative approach is followed, by considering which therapeutic approach will work best for a particular client, in a particular situation, with a particular problem. I run my practice based on a firm ethical foundation and only use scientifically sound approaches.
