Hello! I am Sian (pronounced a bit closer to Sharn) it’s a Welsh name although I am South African. 

I am a Clinical Psychologist registered as an independent psychologist with the Health Professions Council of South Africa. I have been in full time private practice in Pretoria since 2015, prior to which I worked in the Gauteng Department of Health at various clinics around Johannesburg and CMJAH, where after I worked in Correctional Services in Pretoria. In 2020 I relocated to the South Coast, KZN. Currently, I am in private practice in South Coast, KZN as well as online via my Virtual Practice.  

I see the world as an interconnection of relationships – we are our interactions. Our  interaction, with ourselves and with others in our worlds, facilitates our wellness. This is the foundation for how I relate and how I work..

My practice is  predominantly therapy based (see services for therapy offered and FAQs for my working method). I work with Individuals, couples, parents and families

In terms of medico-legal/psycho-legal work, I am co-director of Equilibrium Psychology working with a team of psychologists that provide medico-legal assessments RAF, PRASA, personal injury, clinical, wrongful arrest and criminal risk assessment. I am largely involved in peer review of psychological reports prior to court submission. *I do not do custody or family law related assessments.  

I offer school talks for teachers and parents on requested topics. I do presentations and expert panel discussions on request. I contribute to journalistic articles (on request) for magazines and periodicals. I provide clinical supervision to registered psychologists. 

 I assist corporate companies – providing talks as well as active and experiential group work tailored for the need (conflict resolution, staff development, stress management and emotional functioning: vulnerability, need expression, group functioning). 


I consult predominantly online, offering individual, couples, parental and family therapy.  This platform for therapy has fast tracked in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, though I have consulted clients via online platforms over my years in practice. In creating a virtual consulting space, I maintain my therapy room as a warm space that is optimal for therapeutic change. Online therapy can be exceptionally rewarding and is rather convenient, so long as you have a private space where you can connect with me, we can work meaningfully.     

In Scottburgh, I consult from my practice 110 Galway Street, Scottburgh. The practice is a modern and minimalistic space, ready and geared for therapeutic wellness.
