BA HONS MA PSYCHOLOGIST
As a Swiss living abroad in South Africa, I have since 1995 headed up the psychology practice of the Sports Science Institute of South Africa (SSISA) in Newlands, Cape Town. My main interests lie in the related fields of sport and health psychology. Over the years I have worked extensively with elite athletes and teams, and provided psychological support at a number of international sporting events, including the Olympic Games.
On the health psychology side my passion lies in helping people to make and to maintain healthy changes to their lifestyles. This has lead to consulting, training, and supporting in various stress management, burnout prevention, weight-loss and cardiac rehabilitation programmes. The sport and health psychology interests come together perfectly in the corporate environment, where my work focuses on helping clients to develop, implement and maintain strategies which optimize both performance and well-being, on a sustainable basis.
