About Clare Harvey
Contact Clare Harvey

My name is Clare Harvey. I am a registered Clinical Psychologist with the Health Professions Council of South Africa. I am also a member of the Psychological Society of South Africa, as well as The South African Psychoanalytic Confederation.

After completing my Bachelor of Arts Degree with Honours in Psychology at Rhodes University I worked in a Special Needs School in London, in the United Kingdom, for three years. I returned to South Africa and received my Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Johannesburg. My Masters practical training took place at a government primary school once a week where I saw children for individual and group therapy. I also trained at Tara Psychiatric Hospital Adult Outpatient Unit on a weekly basis where I saw adults for individual therapy.

I completed my Internship at the then named Johannesburg General Hospital, now named The Charlotte Maxeke Johannesburg Academic Hospital. For the first half of my internship I worked in the Adult Inpatient Psychiatric Ward where I conducted individual and group therapy with adult psychiatric inpatients. I also ran an adult therapy outpatient clinic. I completed my second half of my Internship at The Child and Family Unit at Johannesburg General Hospital. Here I saw children, parents and families for therapy; as well as children for psychological assessments.

I spent my Community Service year at the then Coronation Hospital, now known as Rahima Moosa Mother and Child Hospital. After this year I was appointed into a permanent post as a Clinical Psychologist at this Hospital and I was promoted to Head of the Department where I ran the Psychology Department for two years. I worked with adults, adolescents, children and families with a wide range of psychological difficulties. I was also responsible for the training and supervision of Intern and Community Service Psychologists.   

Currently I run a private practice in Dunkeld where I see clients for therapy and assessments. I also supervise other psychologists. I attend professional seminars and conferences on a regular basis to continue developing my professional knowledge and practice.

I am also a wife and mother.
