Registered Psychologist with about 20 years private practice experience in Durban. Offering both Individual and Couple/Marriage counselling. I adapt the therapeutic framework to the unique individual and presenting concerns in order to achieve the best results. Privacy, confidentiality and varying belief systems are treated with the utmost respect. Practice email: michellebennettsa@gmail.com

I have experience in working with a wide range of clients, concerns, disorders, spiritual orientations and different cultural groups.

 I use a wide range of therapeutic techniques. These include, but are not limited to: Cognitive Therapy, CBT (Cognitive- Behavioural Therapy), Integrative/ Eclectic Therapy, Transpersonal therapy, Solution focussed therapy, Psychodynamic and Client centred therapy. I do both short and long term therapy, depending on the requirements of the case.  I generally, although, not always, use CBT for the treatment of anxiety disorders. These are techniques based on research evidence.


I have also done a significant amount of private practice work for Corporates and also smaller companies over the years, comment for various magazines and supervise internships.


I regard it of the utmost importance to put the client’s “best interests” first, while practising within the ethical boundaries of my profession. I look forward to the honour of working together with you and sharing my knowledge and expertise.
