Clinical Focus

Dr Avril Cowlin

Dr. Avril Cowlin trained as a clinical psychologist late in life , having traveled quite a circuitous route to get there. She initially studied fine art at UCT, changed to a general Bachelor of Arts and subsequently trained as a registered nurse. She feels that these quite varied areas of interest and training have all added to her capacity to engage with patients across a broad spectrum and with an enriched capacity to understand their psychology. After many years of working in the community hospital healthcare setting she feels ready to move on to the new challenges posed by private practice.
