About Dr Stanbridge
I am a qualified specialist psychiatrist based in Cape Town, South Africa and I see adults on an individual basis.
I have a special interest in women’s mental health and aim to empower women by caring for their mental health and assisting them in stepping into their power.
I work in a holistic and integrated way and believe that the mind, body and spirit are all interconnected and to truly care for mental health, we need to care for all three.
My approach to psychiatric care starts with building an authentic and trusting relationship between myself and my patients.
Whilst I often use evidence-based medication where deemed necessary, I acknowledge that the development of mental illness is multi-faceted and subsequently approach it in a multidisciplinary and complementary way. This includes medication, psychotherapy, nutrition, exercise, meditation, breathwork, gut health, supplementation and other complementary medicines.
I acknowledge the courage it takes to ask for help and respects my patient’s trust in me to be that helper.
