HOW I WORK
When I am working with individuals or families I adopt a solution-focused and positive-focused psychology that helps you as a client to heal, grow and change whether your problem has been some form of abuse, you just want to self-actualize or change a pattern in your life that is holding you back. My approach is to work with my clients on their needs and goals. I work more medium (3 – 6 months) or long-term (1 year or more) as, in the majority of cases, it takes a bit of time to change a pattern forever that has developed over time.
My style is warm, relaxed, real, focused and client-centered. I believe in working collaboratively with my clients. I am trained in educational psychology but you are the expert on your life and how you want it to be. Together we work to help change or develop those behaviors and patterns that make your life less painful or more effective.
I enjoy working with a variety of people including children, adolescents, individuals, and families. My passion is to help children and adolescents reach their potential both in the academic environment and in their personal lives as well as to assist individual's in managing the impact of individual trauma in their personal lives.
I am also an intern reading therapist for Read Africa, which uses a phono-graphix reading system, as well as a presenter for Study Toolbox which is a study skills programme. I enjoy presenting study skills workshops to groups of students.
