Dr Yolande Breyder, Hawthorne Psychology's Principal, is a General Practitioner specializing in Psychological Medicine. She confines her practice to adult mental health issues and has had extensive experience in the treatment of Mood disorders, Anxiety disorders, and Asperger’s Syndrome.
“As a psychologically-skilled GP, I believe that I am able to offer an important service that is complementary to that offered by psychologists and psychiatrists. Having a combination of medical and psychological training places me in a unique position to determine whether your symptoms are due to medical, social, psychological, or emotional factors – or a combination of many of these, as is so often the case. In addition, I am able to make appropriate assessments, administer various psychological interventions and prescribe psychotropic medication as indicated.”
