Judith is an Educational Psychologist in private practice in the Table View area for the past 10 years. She has a special interest in sandplay therapy for which she is internationally certified. Sandplay therapy is based on a premise which is succinctly expressed in this quotation by C.G.Jung:“Often the hands will solve a mystery that the intellect has struggled with in vain.” Judith’s certification as an EMDR practitioner assists her in her therapeutic work with traumatized children and adolescents. Her work includes assessments of children with learning and/or behavioural and social barriers as well as assessing adolescents in order to guide subject/career decisions. She presents talks for staff development and parent support.
