Darryn Costello

Clinical Psychologist

MSocSci (Clin Psych) (UKZN)

I aim to provide a warm, non-judgmental and supportive space within which to help people understand themselves and their life experiences. I strive to help my clients deal more effectively with their life challenges. My therapeutic approach has been shaped by my experience working in private practice and a number of public hospitals and community clinics. I have enjoyed working with clients from diverse backgrounds, with varying psychological needs.

My services include:

  • Adult Individual Psychotherapy
  • Adolescent Individual Psychotherapy
  • Couples Psychotherapy
  • Clinical Supervision

Treatment approach:

My treatment approach is always guided by my client’s needs. I primarily practice psychodynamic psychotherapy. This treatment approach means that I like to work on a deeper level with my clients. This entails forming a trusting and containing therapeutic relationship for the client to explore themselves and their life experiences. Working through these life experiences with a psychologist hopes to bring about healing and growth within the client.

Special interests:

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Problems with anger
  • Self-harm and suicidal behaviours
  • Coping with life transitions
  • Trauma and abuse
  • LGBTIQA+ mental health issues (LGBTIQA+ affirmative practitioner)
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Bereavement
  • Problems with self-esteem and self-confidence
  • Coping with loss, chronic illness and disability
  • Self-exploration and personal growth
