ABOUT ME

ABOUT ME

I'm an Educational Psychologist and have been in private practice since 2019 in the  Randburg/ Sandton area. I have also been a high school History teacher since 1999. I completed by Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) as well as my Bachelor of Arts Honours (Psy) and Bachelor of Education Honours (Edu. Psy) through UNISA as well as my Masters in Educational Psychology at the University of Johannesburg.

 

I am passionate about working with children and adolescents. My practice focuses on helping young people manage their environment and relationships - with themselves, their family and peers. I provide further support in the following areas:

  • Psycho-educational assessments for diagnostic purposes as well as accommodations applications to both the GDE and IEB.

  • Career and subject choice assessments

  • Therapy in the areas of anxiety, depression and play therapy.

  • Learning support

  • Study skills and time management

 

​My primary focus is helping individuals heal, grow and achieve their dreams/goals no matter the context

EXPERIENCE

I have worked in the education field since 1999. I am a qualified high school history teacher and have taught history from Grade 8 to Grade 12. In 2012 I registered as a psychometrist where I completed psycho-educational assessments and career/subject choice assessments. In 2015 I was appointed as a counselor in the context of a high school where I currently work. I further have a private practice as an Educational Psychologist. In this capacity I support students through many processes such as study skills, time management, anxiety, depression, relationship conflicts (peers or parents), career and subject choice concerns and difficulties as well as learning support. I liaise closely with the families of students, students, parents and teachers.
