About me

Michelle Smit

My passion is within the field of addiction care. I have worked within multidisciplinary teams at in-patient facilities caring for patients that have both substance and process addiction. These addictions range from; alcohol, prescription tablets, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamines to shopping, gaming, and gambling to name a few. In addition, many of the patients I have treated over the years have a dual diagnosis. Often, addiction is comorbid with a psychiatric diagnosis such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, personality disorders or mood disorders.

I am fluent in both English and Afrikaans. I obtained my Master’s degree with the Pearson Institute and am currently completing my Doctorate degree in Psychology. I am registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa, as well as with the BHF. Online based therapy. Available after hours and weekends.
