Michael sissison

Clinical psychologist


I am a Clinical Psychologist conveniently located at 25 3rd Avenue, Parktown North, Johannesburg, easily accessible from Sandton, Rosebank, Parktown, Atholl, Norwood, and surrounds.

I work with individuals, couples and adolescents. I am primarily interested in our relationships and our sense of self in relation to others, oneself and the world.

Apart from our interpersonal relationships, our relationship to sex, food, money, philosophy, academia, sport, travel and other human interests are central to my work. We may sometimes find ourselves feeling lost and confused, unsure of stepping into the world.

I am interested in these human struggles, on both an individual and collective level. The integration and consolidation of our human life experience and our attempts to find meaning in sometimes chaotic life situations are ongoing interest areas. I believe that, in our searching, the jewel is not quite what we think it is.

Transitional life challenges including new work, new relationships, illness, injury, children, trauma, moving home, divorce, death and retirement are all commonly shared. I will travel with you through these shared human experiences, both adventures and misadventures.

Ultimately, we are searching for a sense of home, meaning, and belonging, a place where we can just be ourselves.
