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 substance abuse. Many of the patients I have treated over the years have a dual diagnosis. Often, substance abuse 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.
