Tamlyn Anderson

MA Clinical Psychology (Wits) (Master's in Clinical Psychology).

A psychodynamically trained Clinical Psychologist who believes strongly in tailoring therapy to an individual’s personal needs. She enjoys using interactive, eclectic and mindfulness-based approaches to help individuals reach the best possible potential within their lives.

Tamlyn obtained her Master degree at the University of the Witwatersrand and completed her training at the Tara Moross Hospital and Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital. Her private practice was run at the Netcare Rehabilitation Hospital for 5 years, where she specialized in trauma and reintegration therapy with patients who have suffered severe physical trauma. This included spinal cord injury, stroke, traumatic brain injury, orthopedic injuries, autoimmune disease, and near drownings.

During this time she was also a lecturer at Monash University, where she designed and implemented honours and third-year modules. For the last 6 years, she has been involved with specialized work in the field of Functional Neurological Disorder at Wits Donald Gordan Medical Hospital, where she has been the leader in developing a Group Psychotherapeutic Program: Integrative Group Therapy (IGT).

Tamlyn has a specific interest in depression, anxiety, sexual health, pre and post birth therapy and parenting therapy, with the aim to help others in their journey to find an authentic and meaningful relationship with themselves, within their interpersonal relationships, and with the world around them.

For the last year, Tamlyn has settled into her new private practice at The Practice.

“ I believe in a process which allows an individual to have a deeper understanding of their emotions and thoughts, in such a way that they feel they can become owners of their life choices and behaviours. By having a more authentic relationship with the self, as well as past, present, and future, an individual has the potential to become the best possible version of themselves.”

Tamlyn places emphasis on the importance of the patient-therapist relationship, in order to ensure the patient experiences a safe and meaningful therapeutic journey.
