Janice has extensive experience in general adult psychiatry, women’s mental health and neuropsychiatry. She favours a holistic approach to treatment, incorporating psychological, nutritional and physical wellness factors, in addition to medication. 

 

Janice qualified with her medical degree from the University of Cape Town in 2005 and initially focussed on HIV management in both clinical and research contexts, obtaining her Diploma in HIV in 2009. Evolving scientific understanding of the neurological and mental health effects of the disease encouraged her to pursue a specialisation in psychiatry through the University of Witwatersrand. She obtained her Fellowship of the College of Psychiatrists in 2013 and was awarded her Masters in Psychiatry in 2015.  

 

Janice subsequently completed a certificate in Neuropsychiatry and has been integral to the Neuropsychiatric Clinic at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital. Most recently, she has been based at the world-renowned Perinatal HIV Research Unit, where her focus has been on adolescent and maternal mental health.
