[04/12/21]   I'll be talking about parents raising children with disabilities on 'Kaya FM' tomorrow night 13th April 2021 #radioshow #Radio #Interview

[03/01/21]   I do not take notes during sessions as I believe this breaks the flow of conversation.

I consider clients to be full partners in the healing process, and learn much from their many and varied experiences.

How I Work: Counselling: Short-term, solution-focused, structured with easy-to-remember screening questionnaires online.

For example, if a client would like to know whether they suffer from a certain condition, we sit together in front of a computer monitor.

They will then answer the questions in writing; and we will discuss the answers in the context of what brought them to counselling in the first place.


Anger Management
Individual Couple and Family Counselling
Parental Guidance
Stress Management
Supervision and Consultation to colleagues and social work students
Training workshops - Specialities
Bipolar Mood disorder
Families of alcoholics
Stroke survivors and their loved ones

[11/05/20]   I had the pleasure to meet Ruth Katz 2 years ago. She has really made a positive impact in my career life as I was in-between decisions on how to build my practice. She has provided great insight on how to build a professional network and create a niche market. Her social media expertise was the highlight of my experience with her as it has helped me to grow my network.

I recommend Ruth Katz to any aspiring professional who wants to learn advanced skills in networking and social media marketing.

Thank you Ruth!😊' Samantha M.


I would say social workers tend to work in a systems-based approach and in an ecological perspective whereas psychologists are more focused on the person’s internal world! πŸ™‚πŸπŸ¦‹ 05/11/2020
