I am a clinical psychologist in Cape Town. This blog is a place for observations, reflections, and other things personal and public.

I believe that all of us can benefit from therapy at some point in our lives, and the important thing is to find the right fit for you, and to build up a trusting relationship.

I also believe that we all need to take responsibility for our own stories, to develop positive life-affirming relationships and strategies and to keep on developing.

If you are looking for a therapist in the Southern Suburbs, I see adolescents, adults and couples for short-term or longer-term psychotherapy in Claremont. I am also the consulting psychologist at a private boys school in Rondebosch. Email me at petefarlam@gmail.com for a consultation.

Alternatively, read a post or two and leave some thoughts or observations.

    Greetings from the East Coast!

    I have really enjoyed reading your blog and my favourite photo is “Water” which you took in Betty’s Bay. Awesome shot!

  3. I came over here, from BOOK SA. Saw you had commented on the Farren/Emdon conversation. I’m interested in your blog and perspective.

    Good to find your blog. I have stated a writing group in Betty’s Bay called Out of the Box and have some eccentric thinkers among us. Our last workshop was called ‘On the Road’ hosted by Lien Botha. It was based on Jack kerouac’s work. We have set up a blog – Betty’s Bay Writersblog. Take a look, you might find it interesting. Would love to paste your ‘road’ story! Please let me know if that would be OK

    Dear Pete,

    We’d like to use one of your articles in a university textbook. Would you be able to let me have an email address to which I can send a formal request?

    Many thanks.
